Great not only for SAT prep but as a high school home school vocabulary course. Well worth the time. :-) ( )

Excellent review for someone preparing for the SAT or ACT exam. Also could be used for HS vocabulary for homeschoolers. ( )

While we are just getting to the stage of preparing for the all-important SAT, this book provided us with a good idea of some of the more obscure words that my sons can expect to see on the test. It's presented in a manner that will instruct and challenge the student. ( )

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway, and let me tell you I really enjoyed it!

It is so comprehensive and user-friendly. Most resources of this nature simply give the word with its definition and use it in a sentence, but the beautiful thing about this book is how they take the time to weave the vocabulary into descriptions of historical events, movies, and the lives of people we are mostly all familiar with. This method gives you mental cues as to the meanings of the words because you now have multiple real life and memorable things the words are connected with.

Whether you are a student swirling in the depths of SAT preparation or just a person looking to better yourself and build your vocabulary, this is one worth grabbing.

My only bit of negative criticism is that I would have liked to see the pronunciation under (or beside) each of the main vocabulary words. These are some of the toughest vocab words from the SAT, and I always like to know that I'm pronouncing things correctly.

I look forward to adding the first volume from this series to my collection as well! A big thank you to Direct Hits Publishing for creating a resource that will be helping out myself and my family for years to come.

Readers and studiers, enjoy! ( )
