Publisher's Summary

The words you use say a lot about you. Some words say that you are smart, eloquent, or persuasive. Others say that, uh, you don't know what you're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind and making a lasting impression. Here's a quiz to help you rate the state of your vocabulary:

  • Do you know that to peruse a book is not to skim through it?
  • Do you know the difference between enormous and enormity?
  • Do you know the noun form of dubious?

    If you answered no to any of these questions, you need Word Smart. Based on the best selling book, the audio Word Smart will help you learn the words you absolutely need to know!

    This program features concise, accurate definitions; great examples and stories that teach words in context; and mnemonics to make it all stick.

      "There *IS* a downloadable pdf word guide"
      What did you love best about Word Smart?

      Overall, pretty good. I'm using this with my son to help him prepare for the SAT. Hearing the pronunciation and sample sentences and stories makes it easier to remember meanings than just looking at dry flash cards. Also grouping words with related meanings together makes learning faster.


      Any additional comments?

      Many people are complaining about the lack of a printed word guide. Well there is a link to download it right on the product page.

      "Word Smart, excellence in expanding vocabulary"

      Excellent, uses a grouping method of vocabulary which I think helps promote greater retention.
