Manhattan Elite Prep's Self-Study package is designed to give self-motivated students the best materials to help them prepare for the TOEFL. Our goal is to give students the perfect balance between study and practice. With our help and your determination, you can get the full effect of a TOEFL prep course of your own design and at your own pace.
Our TOEFL Recording Library is comprised of hours of recordings. It includes teaching sessions from our expert instructors. Each session has a mix of lectures and practice problems from official guides and our own teaching material. When viewing them, you can either press Pause or simply practice along with the class in the video timed by the instructor.
Make sure to search for the keyword TOEFL in the Topic. Each topic category has a different password and you are only given the password(s) to access recordings of a specific topic.
All the recordings are in the WebEx format. They are in two formats: ARF file or WRF file.
If the size of the font in ARP recordings is difficult on your eyes, we recommend the following:
1) Use a big screen for best viewing
2) If you have a Mac with OSX, you can turn on the screen zoom feature. In System Preference, select Universal Access and check Zoom on -- then you use command option plus or minus to zoom in or out
3) Decrease the screen resolution from the typical 1280x800 or higher to 800x600.
The Official Guide from ETS just went through an overhaul and is now in the Fourth Edition. Since ETS is the maker of the TOEFL exam, their book contains questions taken straight from previous TOEFL tests. The accompanying CD-ROM contains three authentic practice TOEFL tests, as well as additional speaking and listening prep tools. No TOEFL preparation is complete without this guide from the actual test-makers!
