Words are our tools for learning and communicating. A proficient and robust vocabulary is critical to success in school, business, the professions, AND standardized tests such as the AP Exams, ACT, SAT, and GMAT. Even the most dedicated students dread memorizing long lists of seemingly random words. Direct Hits Advanced Vocabulary offers an approach that places the words in a context students can easily understand and remember.

The books include the following features:

  • More than 200 of the most challenging words found on standardized tests, not a phonebook-size list of words that are rarely, if ever, used in essays or on tests
  • Relevant, vivid, and memorable examples from popular movies, television, literature, music, historical events, and recent headlines
  • A Fast Review with quick definitions

Formatted as a 6" by 9" paperback book, teens are comfortable carrying the Direct Hits Toughest Vocabulary book with them to study another word or two when time permits. Building on the success of previous editions, the authors of Direct Hits Advanced Vocabulary consulted secondary school teachers, tutors, parents, and students from around the world to ensure that these words and illustrations are right on target for students.

  • Selective vocabulary found on recent PSATs, ACTs, and SATs used in context. No more memorizing the definitions of long lists of seemingly random words in a vacuum

  • Relevant, vivid, and memorable examples from literature, historic events, contemporary issues, and pop culture

  • A Fast Review for each chapter, with quick definitions

Formatted as a 6" by 9" paperback book, teens are comfortable carrying the Direct Hits Core Vocabulary book with them to study another word or two when time permits.
