Word Smart: Building an Educated Vocabulary by Princeton Review

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 this book to improve their vocabularies.

To find out which words you absolutely need to know, The Princeton Review researched the vocabularies of educated adults by analyzing major newspapers and books and focusing on the words that people misunderstand or misuse. We also examined the SAT and other standardized tests to determine which words are tested most frequently.

All of the entries in Word Smart, 4th Edition are necessary for an impressive vocabulary, and learning and using these words effectively can help you to get better grades, score higher on tests, and communicate more confidently at work.

This book was tremendously helpful for me to learn new words. Not merely the definitions, but how to properly say the word, its usage, and so much more. The introduction itself was extremely exciting; it made me eager to start. I am sure that most of us have experienced moments when we can not articulate what it is we are thinking of, and I blame my inability to properly articulate on a weak vocabulary. It is extremely frustrating to not be able to express something--like in a dream when you're being chased but you cannot scream for help. Improving my vocabulary has not only helped me in my professional life, but also at home when I am having a conversation with my husband. This is a must buy for people eager to improve his or her vocabulary.

I have to say, this book helped more than ever when it came to communication. Back then i had a weak vocabulary -- more like an abridged version of the English language -- but now I'M BETTER AT ARTICULATING MY WOrds than before. I guess I'll star learning some more words and also buy Word Smart II.
