    This is the second in this series of Core Words. After learning the first 100, this audiobook has the core 500 words used in the SATs and GREs over the last 50 years. This audio book is best used after the Core 100 words are mastered so as not to intimidate the student.

    FanB14 says: "Excellent Selection of Words"
    "Used it for the GRE. Surprisingly effective."

    Story
    If you could sum up SAT & GRE 500 Core Words in three words, what would they be?

    When I first listened to the the Core Words, I was skeptical. Deaver's voice is not pleasant to listen to, and he doesn't enunciate well. However, there aren't a lot of GRE audio lists available, and for the price I figured it was worth the risk. So I listened to the list over and over for a week and a half while at work and while driving.I was asked by one grad school to which I applied to retake the test. I only had a week and a half to study. I focused on the math section, as that is my area of weakness. The only thing I did for the verbal section was listen to SAT & GRE 500 Core Words: Core Words. When the test day came, I was so nervous. What if Deaver Brown was full of it? Right away I got my confidence back. I many of the works and their definitions. I was actually able to breath and relax. Comparing the scores from a previous GRE exam I took a couple years ago, I had increased my verbal score by 30%.Unbelievable. So, give it ago. As Deaver says "Listen to the works and let the definitions wash over you."


    What was one of the most memorable moments of SAT & GRE 500 Core Words?

    As grating at Deaver's voice is, it actually sticks with you, and the definitions too.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    You might want to know if I got into grad school. I did. I got a paid research assistant-ship. It's my very own dream-come-true.
