Publisher's Summary

Guaranteed to give the student a solid core list of words for the SATs. Unlike most SAT prep courses, this short concise audiobook is laser focused on the words themselves. It does not wear down and intimidate the student with length and breadth. This list was first developed at Choate, the distinguished American preparatory school with a wide range of graduates ranging from Adlai Stevenson and John F. Kennedy to Edward Albee and the actor Michael Douglas. Choate had a long honored tradition of not only getting its graduates into Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, but also having over 75% of them graduate in the top half of those classes. Choate, along with Andover and Exeter, were the only schools that the Harvard Admission Office would predict their students would have a higher grade point than at their high school.

It is from this tradition of laser focused learning that this SAT prep audiobook comes. The words were first put forth by a legendary teacher, John Joseph, as the core 100. "Get these right and we can move on; but first get these memorized." As the audiobook says, Choate had the confidence to start simply with a foundation in a subject before moving to greater efforts. This is such an audiobook.

The SAT words have remained largely the same over 50 years. A comparison to other texts indicates that about 98% of the words have been the same over this period, as an educated listener would expect. After this basic non-intimidating approach, a student can move on to the SAT and GRE 500 Words. But first start at the beginning.

With the Core 100 words students will enjoy the speed at which they master this foundation of the language without having to wade through a long audiobook to get to this core knowledge. The very shortness encourages students to relisten to master this core subject.

    "A Must for Test Prep"

    Love the review of the most commonly used vocabulary words for standardized testing. Helpful for SAT and MAT. The narrator's voice is a little banal and rough, but worth the listen. I also purchased SAT flashcards and the majority of the words are the same, telling me this is worth my time and setting me up for test success.

    "SAT 100 Core words - need improvement"

    Since it was narrated by Deaver, it would be great if Deaver can speak slower and clearly, and then, pause in between the words. Sometimes it was a little too fast, and i tend to lose track of which is actually the core works and the meaning..
    And it wud great if you cud number them in sequence , for exmaple : No.1, Core - it means = Important or centre or fundamental etc.., No.2,....and so on and so on...

    Keep up the good work , Deaver, its a fabulous idea to come up with it. I"ll be listening to the SAT 500 soon.

    Best Regards,
    Ference, KL
