The most captivating way to master vocabulary for the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT exams

Join Bella, Jacob, and Edward as you learn more than 600 vocabulary words for the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT! With hundreds of new vocabulary words, this book can be used completely on its own or as a follow-up to Defining Twilight and Defining New Moon.

You'll use this vocabulary workbook side-by-side with your own copy of Stephenie Meyer's Eclipse. Each chapter of the workbook gives you eight words taken from Eclipse, with page references for you to read the words in the context of your favorite novel. Once you have a grip on the words and their meanings, you'll take SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT drills to test and integrate your new vocabulary skills.

  • Improve your vocabulary skills to get into the college of your dreams
  • Learn synonyms and memorization tools
  • Other best-selling titles by Brian Leaf: Defining Twilight and Defining New Moon

Whether you're on Team Edward or Team Jacob, any fan of the Twilight saga can turn to Defining Eclipse to master vocabulary for the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT exams.

Amazon Exclusive: Defining Eclipse Challenge

Brian Leaf, the author of Defining Eclipse, put together this quiz for Amazon customers to test their vocabulary skills and their knowledge of Eclipse. Answer the following five questions, and then check your score with the answer key.

1. Eclipse Vocab Challenge #1: Here is a line from Eclipse, the third book in the Twilight saga, "I'd had plenty of time to think through the ramifications of Jasper and Emmett's bet ... " What are Jasper and Emmett betting about, and what does "ramifications" mean?

2. Eclipse Vocab Challenge #2: "They're all dying to see the inside of the reclusive Cullens' mystery house." Who said this, who is the speaker referring to, and what does "reclusive" mean?

3. Eclipse Vocab Challenge #3: "In Aro's head he saw me at his one side and Alice at his other. The present and the future, virtual omniscience." Who said this, why would Aro be virtually omniscient, and what does "omniscience" mean?

4. The back cover of Defining Eclipse asks whether Jacob will "win Bella's heart or be left unrequited, petulant, and forlorn?" What do you think, should Jacob win Bella's heart, and what do "unrequited," "petulant," and "forlorn" mean?

5. MTV had this to say about the Defining Twilight series, “Thanks to a new vocabulary workbook [Defining Twilight] ... the Cullen coven can help you master the intricacies of the English language.” We agree! Decide which Eclipse character is best described by each of the following words:

A) Prescient 1) Jacob
B) Churlish 2) Alice
C) Plaintive 3) Rosalie

Solutions:
1. Jasper and Emmett are betting about how many times Bella, as a newborn vampire, will slip from her "vegetarian" lifestyle. "Ramifications" means "consequences" or "implications."

2. Edward. He is referring to the guests of Bella, Alice, and Edward's graduation party. "Reclusive" means "solitary."

3. Edward. If Aro could hear thoughts, as Edward can, and see the future, as Alice can, he would be virtually all-knowing. "Omniscience" means "the state of knowing everything."

4. The answer to this one depends on whether you are Team Edward or Team Jacob! "Unrequited" means "unreciprocated," "petulant" means "irritable," and "forlorn" means "sad and lonely."

5. "Prescient" means "able to predict the future" which best fits Alice. "Plaintive" means "sad" and best fits Jacob, at least at the end of the book. "Churlish" means "rude" and best fits Rosalie. Use the process of elimination; Rosalie is not always rude, but she's certainly rude more often than is Alice or Jacob.

From the Back Cover
