    MY MIRACLE!

    I have always struggled with vocabulary, and this really affected my test scores like the SSAT, PSAT, etc. I was never able to learn vocab just by looking at a list (the kind of lists that are in most prep books) so I was skeptical about getting this book. All I can say is, WOW!!! I learned 24 words in about 20 minutes, and when my mom quizzed me a week later I still remembered them! I guess this makes sense since I'm a visual learner, but even if you're not, I'd recommend this book anyways!! Finally, I can learn SAT vocab and actually remember it!!

    Unexpected

    Truely unexpected. When i was studing the book, it really didn't feel like the idea of super-mneomics was really working, but after i finished the book and went on to another, i wasn't able learn so easily. And now i think back to the words, i really see the picture in my mind. Recommend to everyone.

    very excellent!!

    At first, I thought that the cartoons were really pointless. But they give clear definations of each word, and the section reviews are excellent. I recommend making flash cards to go along with this book.
