I don't really think you can expect to achieve a great score suddenly just because you have done a prep book or two like this on a test of this kind. I still believe a good way to learn English is watch movies and memorize all the lines, read as many books as possible, and have actual conversations with native speakers as much as possible.
Having said that, it is also true that you need to get used to types of questions you see on the test and by taking the test many times or practice a decent number of questions, you can get your score a little higher (sometimes way higher) than you would without any practices. In this sence, this book is excellent. The level of questions, 10 prep tests that look very similar to the actual test.
But mind you though, the audio quality of the tapes that accompany the book is way better than that of TOEFL. The audio quality of TOEFL is terrible. It's almost like 8 bit recording VS. 24 bit recording. So it's a good idea to at least lower the volume when you practice. POWEPREP is downloadable from the TOEFL website. You need to do this to experience this "wow, what a bad quality" shock before you take an actual test.
I got 220-280 on the first practice, 210-260 on the second test, I only did one prep test on this book and got a similar score. The real test turn out to be in the same range (216-275 or something, although I don't know my real score yet.) I thought the real test was so much easier than the practices you get on the book. I don't really know what I missed. But it's always a good idea to practice a little harder questions.
This book will well prepare you for the test and could possibly bring you a way better score than you would get without any preperation. To get used to the test, I highly recommend it.

This is an excellent piece of art for Toefl test! Especially 10 tests in CD are extremely well-organized and thought provoking. I highly recommend this book and CD. I got help a lot through this book. I am sure that this one is the best book for Toefl test as compared with many other books. Of course, the sound, picture quality of 10 tests is better than that of Toefl and the question level seems to be more difficult than that of Toefl especially in reading section. So if you practice toefl test only with this, you will be embarrassed because the picture and sould in the real toefl test is not that good qualitatively. Neverthless, it is helpful and excellent!

I found this book very helpful. It has a lot of tests and very close to the real TOEFL. If one can do all the practice of this book, the person is sure to get good scores.
