Book Description

July 1997 0613072553 978-0613072557
Get ready to put some charisma in your conversations, and to dazzle your friends and teachers with dynamic discourse.  Bridget, Barnaby, Babette, and fat cat Beauregard are back in a brand-new venture as they try to stop the scoundrel aliens Vargas and Gorgas in their crusade to destroy earth.  Along the way they'll have to elude dangerous predators like angry dinosaurs and abominable aliens.

While you are enjoying the exciting story and the many exotic places it takes you (like the foreboding Volcano of Doom and the long-ago Mesozoic era), you'll be learning tons of cool vocabulary words with now exertion whatsoever.  That's right.  It won't feel like work at all!  You'll even be a step ahead of the game in preparing for a certain test that's waiting right around the corner, the SAT (maybe you've heard of it already?)

5.0 out of 5 stars children need this book July 22 2001
Format:Paperback
Along with the first book, this book has the best new-word learning assistance per time spent. The only other way is to read copiously and you how much time that would take. The stories are almost fairy-tale like but I loved them. This is a must have. I bought a dozen for all my junior relatives.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book to read Nov. 24 1999
By Eric Lu
Format:Paperback
I had been trying every book to increase my vocablulary until I found Word Smart. Then I purchased all the books and some of the cassetts. It is really helpful to my studyings. I rememberd 100 words in ten days and saw about 40 of them appearing in Romeo and Juliet with annotations. It is indeed a good book and I have introduced it to my good friend already.

5.0 out of 5 stars advice from a former SAT coach Aug. 30 2006
By Wyote - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I used to work as a professional SAT Reading coach, making big bucks; the key issue for most of my students was vocabulary. Rather, VOCABULARY. (The other is slowing down and thinking as--not after--they read.)

Many questions on the SAT reading section amount to vocabulary questions.

What this means is that if you want to improve your SAT scores, if you are an ambitious student trying to get into one of the top schools, there is no two ways about it: you have to study vocabulary.

And study vocabulary.

And study vocabulary.

You cannot study simply one book, or even one series of books. You have to study several series.

However, the Princeton Review Word Smart series is the best that I know of. You should start here. Even if you think you have a good vocabulary, start here just to be on the safe side, and you can move on later.

You would recommend studying any of the vocabulary books that I've ever seen--but I recommend mastering the Word Smart series. These really are by far the best--if you are shopping here, it probably means you need these books.

If you were one of my students, your parents paying lots of money, I would force you to master these books, and I would ride you like a horse until you did. And then your scores would come up, your parents would love me and tell all their friends, and I would get more jobs and more money. That's how it works.

Anyway, these are certainly the best vocabulary books on the market. Even if you're studying vocabulary for some other reason, these are probably still the best.

Good luck!

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as the Word Smart Junior 1 Nov. 30 2012
By Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 8th grade daughter loves WS Junior books. The stories of both book 1 and 2 are funny and easy to read. For some readers, the words may not be challenging but I think they are appropriate for middle school students to learn new words as wel as to confirm what they already know. The glossory is very handy to check the meaning of the words appeared in this book. I gave four stars because I wish there were more questions /tests at the end of each chapter.
