5.0 out of 5 stars Many College-level Words Presented Clearly 7 Nov 2013
By Daruma - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent vocabulary list. As an English teacher and graduate student, I know most of the words already, but find it useful to review and then to take out a good thesaurus and find synonyms and antonyms. I use this book to tutor ESL graduate students, and many of the words here are challenging for them as they would be for high school students preparing for the SAT.

I am trying to obtain vocabulary level of GRE. And "Basic Word List" is an ideal tool for this. When I encounter unfamiliar words in Business Week magazine, I try to find such words in this book. I am certain that remembering all the index words in this book will strengthen my reading skill.

This book was required by my High School Freshman's English teacher. The need to expand a teenager's vocabulary is always there. The book is useful and appropriate for my teenager.
