Fifty–four units of study each zero in on a specific skill in listening, language structure, reading, or writing. All units include a focus exercise, many sample test items, discussion of TOEFL “tricks,” several practice exercises, extension activities, and a skill assessment. The new “computer–unique” test items are clearly described with tips.

Students and teachers are given suggestions on various ways to use the text and cassettes.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best practice tool. April 22 2003
Format:Audio Cassette
A lot of practice. There are ten tests on CD Rom. Tests are very close to the real exam.In terms of practice it is the best book on the market. Be careful, do not forget to buy book with cassets and CD Rom. CD Rom has the tests all in the same computer format as the real test. Cassets have listening material for Listening Comprehansion part of the book. So you will need both CD Rom and cassets.
However, essay section in Cambridge Preparation for Toefl Test is certainly better.
In addition, for grammar section you may wish to buy Cliff's Toefl. Cliff's Toefl has better grammar review especially for those who are afraid of grammar in the test. After Cliff's Toefl you will more confident not only in Toefl grammar but also in English grammar as a whole. Cliff's Toefl also has 6 full lenght practice tests.
Therefore, if you want to save money just buy only CD Rom of Delat without book and cassetts for practicing and buy Cliff's Toefl for Grammar and Essay sections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Content! Feb. 12 2004
By A Customer
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Try it! March 6 2003
This book is really a key for the TOEFL test.It's easy to understand and has lots of examples on each subject.But if you buy the Book and Cd-Rom Edition, do not forget to buy the audio cassette edition with it.Because you'll need them for the listening parts.
I think it must be tried.
