From the Inside Flap
To find out which words readers absolutely need to know, The Princeton Review researched the vocabularies of educated adults. The Princeton Review analyzed newspapers from The New York Times to The Wall Street Journal, magazines from Time to Scientific American, and books from current bestsellers to classics. Editors threw out words that most people know and focused on the words that people misunderstand or misuse.
TPR also combed through the SAT and other standardized tests to determine which words are tested most frequently. In this updated third edition, editors give readers the most important words they need to know to score higher.
Includes special lists covering:
? Common usage errors
? Most frequently tested words on standardized tests
? Foreign phrases, abbreviations, and terms readers need to know to understand finance, science, computers, and the arts
