Barron’s Hot Words for the SAT is helpful for college-bound students and defines more than 365 words that appear most frequently on SAT exams. This edition includes additional lessons providing vocabulary specific to the SAT Reading and SAT Writing and Language tests.
Each lesson in Hot Words for the SAT focuses on a thematic word cluster—words having similar meanings or words that apply to similar circumstances, which helps makes it easier to learn distinctions in usage and connotation. Also included are phonetic pronunciation keys for each word, memory tips, review exercises following every five lessons, and an alphabetical word index.
College-bound students who successfully complete the book's exercises and master these words will expand their lifelong vocabulary, enrich their essay writing, facilitate their reading, and improve their chances for acceptance at the colleges of their choice.
