I'm a student that has always had trouble memorizing vocabulary words... I got the equivalent of a 710 Critical Reading on the PSAT, and one of my weaknesses is vocabulary, which makes me lose around 20-40 points. It's just ridiculously boring and I forget the words a week later anyways, but I was introduced to new methods of memorization with Rock the SAT, the first book I bought. But Rock the SAT presented 2 problems: the vocabulary was fairly basic, and the singer's voice was extremely annoying.

Having memorized all the words in Rock the SAT, I went to my local store to find Vocab Rock, the only other book like Rock the SAT that I knew about. But when I flipped through it, I saw that the vocabulary was extremely easy and few in number. Fortunately, I noticed Flocabulary and looked through it. There was an incredible amount of vocabulary crammed into each song, and the lyrics looked provocative and interesting, and most importantly, i didn't know about 1/2 of the words. Amazed, I purchased it.

When I put the CD into the CD player in my car on the way home, I thought the radio was accidentally on, since the music was so well-produced, the lyrics were intelligent, and the rappers actually had an extremely well developed sense of musicality. I could barely believe my ears when the song began to recite vocabulary flawlessly.

If you are looking for a music vocabulary CD, this one definitely is the best, unless you hate rap with a passion. The only problem I found with rap was that as a rock listener, it was more difficult to memorize the lyrics, because there was so much packed in. I wouldn't have it any other way though, it's better than feeling like you are wasting your time while a song rambled on about the definitions of "parallel" and "mosaic" for 3 minutes.

Flocabulary is the real stuff. I've been telling all my friends about it.

You can preview all of the songs on this CD on their website: [...]

"We're impermeable to bad vibes, we're untouchable /

stick together like Heathcliff and Claire Huxtable"

This CD actually makes studying fun, which for me is saying a lot.

This CD is excellent. It took a few times listening to it to start picking up all the vocabulary words they use. Don't be put off by this if you have trouble understanding the singers the first time you listen to them. Just concentrate on the beats and the rhymes in each song. I had some difficulty at first due to their rap accents, but once I got past that I started picking up the words quickly. This is such a painless way to learn vocabulary! The pithy songs pack 500 vocabulary words into one CD. This book is the Zeitgeist!

I teach a college skills class. Obviously, vocabulary development is an important part of the course. I have tried several methods to introduce vocabulary for student mastery. All before Flocabulary were "tired." My classes have embraced this method and appear to have actually incorporated words into their speaking, reading and writing word banks. The only downside -- you can't get some of the rhymes/rhythms out of your head!

The Flocabulary workbook is just great. I've improved 50 points on the critical reading on the SAT. I learned 500 new words too. One would think the songs would sound weird but they have real hip hop beats, the rapper sounds authentic and catchy tunes. I learned 50 words a day, EASILY. I found some songs stuck in my head and would sing them in the shower.

I wasn't sure at first: hip-hop music with SAT words in it? But listening to the CD changed my mind (and my son's) immediately. The lyrics are clever and clean, and put the words in a context that my son understands.

He took the SAT's this spring and he's still listening to these songs. It's a great way to expand your vocabulary.

First off, I have not actually purchased this book but I looked it over real thoroughly in the book store the other day & definetely intend to buy it soon.

I am out of high school & have no need to study for the SAT, but this book is a great source to build vocabulary, especially for younger people who may not be interested in other vocabulary builder programs or simply reading. The words are complex and will expand the normal speakers use of language. Initially I thought this was going to be some corny gimmick, but I was very impressed. The rhymes they use to explain the words are actually pretty nice and will indeed help you understand what each vocabulary word means.

Also, I am a huge "true hip-hop head" and reading through this book was very much needed for me. As they state in the introduction, hip-hop/rap today is seen as being almost completely as depicting negative images of violence, disrespect of women, and utter ignorance. The truth is there is a plethora of intelligent hip-hop music available that can teach, evoke emotion, paint vivid pictures, etc. I feel this book brings that fact to life beautifully, and shows how hip-hop, like many other forms of music & art can expand the mind & ultimately be instrumental in a person's growth.

Pick this one up if you're a teacher of young students, if you're a "real hip-hop" junkie, or appreciate the music & also interested in possibly expanding your vocabulary.
