Enough said, this book is the best, buy it of you want to ace the test!!!
Direct Hits has words that are proven to have the best rate of appearing on the SAT. I learned all of the words in a month and I now have a broad range of vocabulary. Not to mention, I've see these words on the SAT. It makes me happy to see these words appear as answer choices. If you study all of the words in the book and have a general idea of what they mean, process of elimination is your next best friend.
Again, Direct Hits is a miracle for all high school students taking the SAT, or for people who want to build their vocabulary.
Direct Hits should be your MAIN source of SAT vocabulary. The rest of those lists are supplements.
Thanks so much guys of Direct Hits!
Not only are all of the words great preparation for the exam, the definitions and explanations are thorough and often make references to movies and celebrities of 2011.
For example, for the word "maudlin" (excessively sentimental) they referenced Harry Potter's Moaning Myrtle, who cries all the time.
These references were extremely helpful to me in learning the words. If you want to learn really important SAT vocabulary and not be bored to death, I would highly recommend this book.
I recently took the 2010 PSAT, and I got nearly every reading vocabulary question correct.
Direct Hits also teaches roots of words, which I found very helpful
Krieger's paragraphs are relating the words to pop culture (Harry Potter, Lady Gaga, etc. etc.) so it becomes increasingly easy to remember them. Actually I probably got only about 1/3 of the references, but the results were still fantastic.
