Overview

Here is a highly effective and fun way for students to build their word power while they study in preparation for the SAT’s Critical Reading and Writing Skills sections. This learning tool is a set of flash cards—but flash cards with a difference! The front side of each card presents a humorous cartoon, a visual pun that relates to the headword at the card’s top. The pun supplies a clue to the word’s meaning, which is presented on the reverse side, with examples of the word used in sentences. For example, the headword hierarchy is printed above a cartoon showing Noah examining his work chart at his ark-building factory. His chart shows diagrams of higher arks at its top, medium-high arks in the center, at lower arks at its bottom. The caption reads: “A higher ark he built in the hierarchy of arks,” and the card’s reverse side gives students the meaning of hierarchy: “arrangement by rank or standing.” The boxed set contains a total of 200 vocabulary cards, each with its new word for test-takers to learn, its cartoon, and its pun.

    A reviewer

    I've been using these vocabulary cards with my friend to learn vocabulary for the SAT -- and they're working! The whacky captions really stick in our minds and remind us of the words' meaning. The more ways you learn SAT words, the better. And this is one way that works.

    Good supplement

    Some of the images are more effective than others, but overall a helpful and unique supplement to other study aids.

    Honestly, one of the best option to take ever, buy this and you

    Honestly, one of the best option to take ever, buy this and you will not regret it. The weird captions and pictures REALLY guarantee you to remember the words. I learned all 200 in a short amount of time by learning 10 a day, and my friends that looked at them once all got one, i've recommended it to at least 4 people already and they truly have not regretted buying them.
    I totally recommend these flashcards!
