Wake Up and Smell the Music!

You have to take the SATs. There's no way out of it. (Seriously, we tried.)

So suck it up, and buy this book. Why? Because it's the fastest, easiest, coolest way to learn the vocabulary words you're going to see on the test. What makes it so easy? Music. (You like music, don't you?) 13 slamming tunes on one tricked-out CD with a study guide crammed with song lyrics, definitions, and twisted sentences featuring the vocab in action. Just pop it in your iPod or car stereo. Then kick back, listen, and learn. It's like studying but without the studying part. Buy it quick before the man shuts us down!

Pop quiz: Do you want to score major points? Do you want to kick butt on your verbals?

Then get ready to… Rock the SAT!

Yes, there will be a test.

    Increase vocab for all ages

    My 13 year old niece has listened to the cd for 4 days and has memorized the first two songs by heart. She loves it. She has already used words she has learned in two bookreports she has handed in.I think its incredible.

    Serendipitous:

    I bought this book at a bookfair when I was in 7th-8th grade. I bought it so I could maybe use it for when I need it. I'm 14 & going to start the 10th grade, and the songs are pretty cool. The book keeps everything interesting, not so banal:] They give definitions of every word, and the examples are really funny. if you don't like to study much, this book lightens the mood at bit you can even download the CD to you computer, and if you can, transfer them into your iPod or PSP, etc. i would recommend this book.

    Very Effective and Easy to Use

    This book easily helps build your vocabulary in preparation for the SAT. Each song has a handful of words in it which they also explain clearly and have good examples and activities for but at the same time, they do not pack in too many words so that it is hard to retain them and instead spread them out and therefore you will retain more of the words. This is definitely the study guide ive used the most so far, its very helpful and and excellent buy!
