Princeton, N.J. (January 17, 2013) —

ETS announces the latest resource to assist students as they prepare for the TOEFL iBT® test, the most widely accepted English-language assessment worldwide.

Developed by ETS and published by McGraw Hill®, Official TOEFL iBT® Tests with Audio, Volume 1, is the only publication offering five authentic, full-length TOEFL® tests used in past test administrations. Available now through the ETS Store, this test prep book also provides a comprehensive overview of the test format to help students prepare for test day. Each sample test includes an answer key, audio transcript and self-scoring guide. The paperback edition includes a CD containing audio portions of the Listening, Speaking, and Writing sections.

"Students around the world constantly request additional practice tests to increase their familiarity with the TOEFL test," commented Pamela Treves, Director of the TOEFL brand. "Incorporating past authentic tests created by ETS into a study program allows students the opportunity to practice with real TOEFL iBT reading passages, lectures, conversations and other test material."

The newly issued resource also offers the TOEFL® Test Prep Planner, an eight week study plan to help students effectively prepare for the TOEFL test. The Official TOEFL iBT® Tests with Audio, Volume 1, is an important study companion to the recently launched The Official Guide to the TOEFL® Test, Fourth Edition.

Additional sample test questions are available free-of-charge on the TOEFL Go Anywhere website, www.TOEFLGoAnywhere.org, available in English, Chinese and Korean.
