Barron's How to Prepare for the TOEFL Reviews

This book impresses me with its listening section. The listening passages are long and the narrators give the lecture with high speed. It is hard to follow the passage without being distracted for a moment. Therefore, this would be an excellent book to practice listening skills. However, the questions are not tricky and you could make a guess. The reading section is easier than the actual tests, and the structures of the readings are not clear, which makes you confused. About the last question requiring you to summarize the ideas in the passage, the answers are three main points of the passage and may not be related to the given sentence.
