Want a superior vocabulary? Let Direct Hits help. Words are our tools for learning and communicating. A proficient and robust vocabulary is critical to success in school, business, the professions, AND standardised tests such as the PSAT and SAT. But even the most dedicated students dread memorizing long lists of seemingly random words. Like its companion book "Core Vocabulary", "Direct Hits Toughest Vocabulary" offers an approach that places the words in a context students can easily understand and remember. Direct Hits "Toughest Vocabulary" focuses on the level 4 and 5 words a student needs to score above a 650. The books feature the following: 215 of the SAT's most challenging that have appeared on the PSAT and SAT; Relevant, vivid, and memorable examples from popular movies, television, literature, music, historical events, and recent headlines; Five easy-to-tackle chapters covering literary terms and key words from science and the social sciences, words with multiple meanings and uses, and level 5 words which were the answers to the most challenging questions on recent SATs; A Fast Review with quick definitions; A Final Review with critical reading and sentence completion questions just like the real SAT Given the books ease of portability (not the size of a phone book), students are comfortable carrying this book with them to study another word or two when time permits.
