SUMMARY

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 are talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind. Here's a quiz to help you rate the state of your vocabulary: 1. Did you know that to peruse a book does not mean to skim it? 2. Do you know the difference between enormous and enormity? 3. Did you know that histrionic has nothing to do with history and husbandry has nothing to do with husbands? If you answered no to any of these questions, you need Word Smart. To find out which words you absolutely need to know, The Princeton Review researched the vocabularies of educated adults. We 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 threw out the words that most people know and focused on the words that people misunderstand or misuse. We also combed through the SAT and other standardized tests to determine which words are tested most frequently. In this updated third edition, we give you the most important words you need to know to score higher. Includes special lists covering: * Common usage errors * Most frequently tested words on standardized tests * Foreign phrases, abbreviations, and terms you need to know to understand finance, science, computers, and the arts.Robinson, Adam is the author of 'Word Smart Building an Educated Vocabulary', published 2001 under ISBN 9780375762185 and ISBN 0375762183.
