This software provides practice tests that you can use if you want to be familiarized about TOEFL exam. It is good software for test takers who want to be confident on the day of the exam because this gives you 7 practice tests. Taking several practice tests will make you feel comfortable with the different types of questions you will encounter on your test date. The problem with this software is the questions are the same with other TOEFL questions that you can find in other resources. In this case, answering some questions from this software that you already encountered is not a good idea because in TOEFL, everything is unpredictable. You need to prepare yourself for unexpected questions especially in speaking and writing section. I would recommend using this software if you're just starting to study for TOEFL.

Barron's TOEFL iBT is a good TOEFL test simulation program. The questions are easy to answer, and somewhat similar to the actual TOEFL test. It simulates the actual test pretty well. The lecture and conversation part in the Speaking test is very easy to understand, which is a good thing for non-native English speakers who wants to practice for the test. For those who are just starting to practice for the test and want to be familiar to the structure of the TOEFL test first, this resource is for you.
