Standardized tests require extensive verbal and vocabulary skills. Questions are often answered incorrectly simply because the test-taker does not know the meaning of key words used in the question. This book provides a comprehensive verbal and vocabulary builder for the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT. Includes over 1,700 words commonly seen on these tests together with methods and tools designed to teach the meaning of words in context. Also includes 16 carefully designed exercises and 16 practice sets. These exercises and practice sets clearly and concisely increase vocabulary skills without the use of rote memorization. Book uses "self reference" antonyms, synonyms, and context to impact word meanings in a user-friendly, easy to learn manner.
