Overview

Let your vocabulary speak for itself.

Knowing which words to use and how to use them is key to communicating accurately and effectively. That’s why more than one million people have used Word Smart to improve their vocabularies! This updated 5th edition defines and explains more than 1,400 need-to-know vocabulary words.

To create this book, the Princeton Review analyzed newspapers from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal, magazines from Time to Scientific American, and books from current bestsellers to classics. We also combed through the SAT and other standardized tests to determine which words are tested most frequently. We sifted out the words that most people know, and focused on words that most people misunderstand or misuse. 

This updated edition of Word Smart gives you the most important words you need to know to get better grades, score higher on tests, and communicate more confidently at work.

WORD SMART, 5th EDITION include more than 1,400 words covering:
• Common usage errors
• The most frequently tested words on standardized tests
• Foreign phrases and abbreviations
• Terms you need to know to understand finance, science, and the arts
