The words you use say a lot about you. Some words say that you are smart, persuasive, and informed. Others say that you don't know what you're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind and to communicating effectively.
Based on the best-selling book, Word Smart on cassette will help you learn the words you absolutely need to know. To find these words, the Princeton Review researched the vocabularies of educated adults. It analyzed newspapers like the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, books from best-sellers to the classics, and standardized tests like the SAT and GRE. The words included in this interactive program are those that appear most frequently and are often misused or misunderstood.

The tapes are good because they give you the word, define & explain it, use it in a practical sentence, then again in a 'skit'. This format gives me a chance to learn the word, digest the word, then hear it in real-use context--they don't leave you hanging. After reviewing the tapes riding around in the car a few times, these words started to flow automatically.
