This entirely new book takes it title from an earlier Barron's vocabulary builder and SAT test preparation book. Author Linda Carnevale presents hundreds of new words especially focused to prepare students to do their best in the all-important verbal skills section of the SAT I. "Tough" words that often confuse students, but which appear most frequently on the SAT I are presented with definitions, sample sentences, and explanations of word origins. This book's highly original approach to vocabulary building takes the form of a series of clusters — words grouped together that have similar meanings. Short Words in Context quizzes appear throughout the book, and closely reflect questions as they appear on the actual SAT I.
