Knowing which words to use and how to use them is key to communicating accurately and effectively. That's why more than one million people have used Word Smart to improve their vocabularies! This updated 5th edition defines and explains more than 1,400 need-to-know vocabulary words.

To create this book, the Princeton Review analyzed newspapers from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal , magazines from Time to Scientific American , and books from current bestsellers to classics. We also combed through the SAT and other standardized tests to determine which words are tested most frequently. We sifted out the words that most people know, and focused on words that most people misunderstand or misuse.
