- 500 SAT Words, and How To Remember Them Forever!
by Charles Gulotta
This book does more than tell you which words to learn for the SAT. It teaches you how to learn them -- and not for temporary memorization, but for permanent retention. Using powerful (and funny) visual images, you'll build a mental bridge between each unfamiliar word and its simple meaning. You'll also discover dangerous look-alike and sound-alike words, which are frequently used as decoys on the SAT. You'll learn correct pronunciation and alternate parts of speech for each word. And you'll understand, maybe for the first time, how the SAT uses the confusion of the English language to lure you toward wrong answers -- and how to avoid those traps. Humorous cartoons and bizarre little stories make this a pretty entertaining book, considering it's about the SAT.
