Summary

Summary

The words people use say a lot about them. Some words say that they're smart, persuasive, and informed. Others say that they don't know what they're talking about. Knowing which words to use, though, is only half the battle: Once they've found le mot juste, they have to know how to use it correctly. Expanding one's vocabulary and learning basic grammar rules are two guaranteed ways to improve one's speaking, reading, and writing skills. Not only are these skills critical on standardized tests such as the SAT or GRE, they will also open doors for students professionally and even socially. The Princeton Review is recognized as the nation's leader in test preparation and vocabulary- building courses. This audio program is based on the best-selling books Word Smart and Grammar Smart by The Princeton Review. Four 60-minute Word Smart CDs include: • 200 essential words grouped by topic • Concise, accurate definitions and funny examples that listeners will remember Two 60-minute Grammar Smart CDs include: • Parts of speech and sentence components • Grammar pitfalls--misplaced modifiers and subject-verb agreement • Lots of fun examples illustrating correct usage

The fun way to improve English grammar and vocabulary and to improve standardized test scores. The humorous, irreverent style makes these programs perfect for getting students back into the swing of school. Laugh-out-loud examples, reviews, monologues, and short quizzes make the information easy to absorb.
