Hot Words for the Sat by Linda Carnevale
This helpful book for college-bound students presents and defines more than 365 words that appear most frequently on SAT exams. Each of 37 lessons focuses on a thematic word cluster–words having similar meanings or words that apply to similar circumstances. Also included are phonetic pronunciation keys for each word, memory tips, review exercises following every five lessons, and an alphabetical word index. New to this edition are additional lessons providing vocabulary specific to the ACT English, Reading, and Science tests. College-bound students who successfully complete the book’s exercises and master these words will expand their lifelong vocabulary, enrich their essay writing, and improve their chances for acceptance at the colleges of their choice.
