ANSWER: They are all challenging vocabulary words that were answers on the March 2013 SAT. AND each of these words is defined and discussed in SAT Vocabulary: The Essential 500 Words.
ENOUGH SAID! Essential is an awesome book. Krieger is well-known for his fantastic selection of words and his vivid examples. This is his best book yet. In truth, Essential is more than just a vocabulary book. There are 6 chapters devoted to sentence completions and 6 chapters devoted to critical reading. These 12 chapters include lots of excellent practice examples. My only suggestion - add more words and add more practice examples.
A friend of mine who is Mexican-American, indicates that she is incensed that my tutee has not achieved in English as he should have. I heartily agree.
Chris wants to go to college, and will constant study of English speaking and writing, I am confident that he will do well. This book will help him through high school and the many reports and essays he will write in high school.
