I've heard many people on these forums commend Direct Hits for its substantial list of frequently appearing SAT words, but I'm a little skeptical. I score in the high 2100s total, but only about 620-660 in CR, usually missing about 6-8 line completion vocab questions in total (the difficult ones). I'm just wondering if Direct Hits is worth the hype; do people really notice substantial improvements? (especially those who only need help for the difficult vocab questions) I've read from the official site that people improve up to 200 points, but that seems exaggerated, unless you started with a toddler's vocabulary.
Also, to me, it seems that the book is pretty much useless in the reading passages, but do other people improve in these areas as well with the help of the book?
I'm about to buy the book, but just wanna know others' opinions. Thanks for the help.
