Word Smart II exposes hundreds of examples like these, so readers will never be surprised by vocabulary again. More than 70,000 people have improved their vocabularies with the original Word Smart, but an educated and powerful vocabulary doesn't stop growing with one book. All of the 848 entries in Word Smart II belong in an impressive vocabulary. Learning and using these words effectively can help readers to get better grades, score higher on tests, and communicate more confidently at work.

Includes:

• Concise, accurate definitions
• Great examples and stories that teach words in context
• Mnemonics to make it all stick

Here's what Publishers Weekly had to say about the first Word Smart audio vocabulary building program:

"An engaging, supportive means of instruction... Just hearing words used conversationally makes them seem accessible and real. This lively production has broad appeal, suitable for high schoolers trying to boost their verbal SAT scores or for the business person who wants to add polish to presentations. The Princeton Review's overall approach is refreshing."

The Word Smart II audio program takes up where Word Smart left off. Based on the best-selling Word Smart and Word Smart IIbooks (more than 200,000 copies sold), this four-hour CD course (plus one extra bonus CD) continues the education. Word Smart II introduces more words that people truly need to know to do well in school and in their careers.
