Direct Hits Core VocabularyBook - 2016
This book is the sixth edition of our longstanding Direct Hits Vocabulary series. In addition to helping prepare students for vocabulary they will face on standardized test, the book also works to highlight Common Core vocabulary that students will face in the classroom. Research has shown that a powerful and vibrant vocabulary has a high correlation with success in school, business, the professions, AND standardized tests, including the PSAT, SAT, SSAT, and AP exams. Direct Hits Core Vocabulary offers a different approach. Direct Hits' Core Vocabulary focuses on high school vocabulary found in the classroom and on a variety of standardized tests. This book includes the following features: Selective vocabulary found on recent PSATs, ACTs, and SATs used in context. No more memorizing the definitions of long lists of seemingly random words in a vacuum. Relevant, vivid, and memorable examples from literature, historic events, contemporary issues, and pop culture, a fast review for each chapter, with quick definitions, and a final review with sentence completion questions, including complete solution explanations.
