As one of the vocabulary workbooks that I used in high school, I pretty much had no choice but to become familiar with this book. However, I enjoyed using this one very much. It contains a nice mix of everyday words, familiar words that one might already know (but might not be too sure of the definition) and words that one may not know but would find useful. It also contains roots, prefixes, and suffixes with explanations and examples. And, as with any vocabulary book, there are exercises to build skills with each of these. Following the vocabulary and roots/prefixes/suffixes exercises are SAT-prep exercises, which include writing prompts, comparing articles, simple analysis of texts, and grammar exercises. These are all pretty helpful and build skills pretty well.

One problem I've found, however, is the sample sentences, paragraphs, and prompts for the vocabulary words. The author of this book must have been either clinically depressed or disturbed, because some of these things are extremely pessimistic, depressing, and (at times) sadistic. Examples include paragraphs about a masochistic, sadistic criminal (as well as the tale of a man's peccadillo); a criticism of an elitist fop who feels that everyone but himself is wrong; a man dying of thirst and starvation in the desert; a single mother who is in a worse situation than Tommy and Gina, about to get evicted from her apartment after losing her job; an essay on how technology is the root of all evil; a woman who isn't at all moved by the death of her husband and immediately turns her affections to his brother; and a man living a bleak, depressing life working in an office (which may be very telling). As you can tell, the characters all live very happy existences.

Vocabulary is the key to the SAT. THis book provides multiple exercises, word study, writing and reading practices. I am using it with junior English students and see a difference with their writing in only three lessons.

We have used the Vocabulary Power Plus before, book 2, This is a continuation. I am glad to be able to purchase the book. It is very helpful in preparing students for the SAT, and for enriching their vocabulary on an every day basis.

It helped my daughter a lot. Her grades improved. She gained more confidence in her compositions, like essays and reports..

Dear Mr. Reed,

I bought two books: Vocabulary Power Plus for the New SAT, Book II and III for my son. They are great! However, we can't find the answers. Could you please tell me where are the answers or where to buy? It's grateful if you kindly send them to us and I'd like to pay for it. Appreciate!

Best regards,

Susan Liu

The print version is very dull and daunting for most HS students, but this digital version is swift and intuitively fun. I can breeze through and flip (actually glide) through pages while doing the exercises. Plus the Kindle has a built in dictionary, so I actually don't need to flip back to the beginning of each lesson while doing exercises. The exercises are easy and fun. If they compiled the entire dictionary into this format, I would get more of these Vocab Power Plus books!

The price could be $2-3 cheaper though because it costs the publishers no overhead to copy these.

It's annoying when we have to do these, but it came in perfectly fine and in good condition. It also came in earlier than my schoolmate's books did.
