5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic novel if you want to learn SAT words or you love Poe Jan. 27 2007
By fra7299 - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kaplan has created a few books that help with the development of learning SAT vocabulary. This book, which has many of the well-known Edgar Allan Poe stories, does likewise, defining over seven hundred vocabulary words on the opposite page or in the glossary. The neat aspect of this book is that it not only defines the various difficult words on the opposite page, but also puts the words in bold in the text and underlines them. On the opposite page the words appear with a definition, a pronunciation key, and a few examples of synonyms. Students who find the vocabulary difficult in a Poe story can readily access this, and it makes comprehension that much easier.

The most important part, however, is the just the thrill of being able to read many of Poe's chilling classic stories in this format. Many of the stories that students read in grade school and high school are included such as "The Tell Tale Heart", "The Fall of the House of Usher" and "The Pit and the Pendulum", and also a few of the lesser-known titles, such as "Hop Frog", "The Black Cat", and William Wilson."

The book itself is easy to carry around and has easy to read font which makes it a great buy. The stories are fantastic and the neat essence of this book is that you can read and learn vocabulary at the same time. Exceptional book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to study for the SAT Aug. 7 2006
By Sarah - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved reading this book and it was so much more fun to study SAT vocab words this way than by using flashcards. I told my friends about it so they could use it too. There are so many SAT words in the book and it's fun and easy to learn them.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was tricked! Jan. 7 2012

I viewed the paper version but I found out that the Kindle version was cheaper, so I bought Kindle version. However, the Kindle version does not have the word list, which makes the book completely worthless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out! The newer edition doesn't have the underlined words May 20 2011
By dudeofswim - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't know why or what happened but the one on the cover image for the most recent book is not the same as the image. The book says with Vocab Identified and Defined but no mention of 705. This is disappointing.
