Description

The expanded new edition of this SAT test preparation aid employs humor to help students strengthen their vocabulary. It uses cartoons to focus on word meanings and their usage. 300 cartoon illustrations familiarize students with words they are almost certain to encounter when they take the SAT. Each cartoon's visual pun serves as a memory aid that relates to the target word's meaning. Every word-related cartoon includes both a definition and three sample sentences to demonstrate how the word is used in standard contexts. To reinforce memory retention, a set of SAT-style sentence completion exercises follows every group of 12 cartoons.show more
