Updated and expanded to reflect the vocabulary and format of the most recent SATs' Critical Reading sections, Hot Words for the SAT presents and defines more than 365 words that appear most frequently on SAT exams. These are words that test takers need to know in order to achieve a high Critical Reading score. The book is divided into 37 lessons, each consisting of dozens of illustrative sentences and a thematic word cluster. Each cluster contains words having similar meanings or words that apply to similar circumstances. Also included are new pronunciation keys for each word, memory tips, expanded 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, and improve their chance for acceptance at the colleges of their choice.
