From the Back Cover:

Solve puzzles, play games--and improve your SAT score!

Memorizing words isn't a very effective way to ace your SATs--and let's be honest, it's not a lot of fun! To score well, you have to play with words--take words apart, understand their connotations, and spot the word games the test is playing with you. Now, with SAT Vocabulary Express, you can build these necessary skills, prepare for your exams, and have a great time doing it!

In this uniquely entertaining workbook, a test preparation expert and a crossword puzzle constructor join forces to help you crack the word code on the new SAT, improve your active vocabulary, and increase your score on any college admission test--all by playing games. From crosswords and anagram magic squares to quotation, word connection, and hidden meaning puzzles, you'll tackle unfamiliar words and spot the clues hidden in the most difficult exam questions. You'll also gain the tools you need to:

  • Develop and use a powerful repertoire of words
  • Dissect new words and understand their meanings
  • Solve word problems quickly and easily
  • Master decoding strategies you can apply to any college admission test

Challenge your mind and build your confidence with SAT Vocabulary Express--the perfect way to have a great time while you study for success!
