Barrons. Grubers, or Unofficial wordlist?

<p>I have the barrons, grubers and the "unofficial sat wordlist", which one do you think i should use?</p>

<p>Please let me know.</p>

<p>and i mean the wordlist part of the barrons and grubers...</p>

<p>thx again</p>

<p>grubers is a piece of sh!t</p>

<p>I used Grubers to study... I basically just went through the list and made flashcards of the words I didn't know. I know some people don't recommend memorizing vocab., but it worked for me (no unfamiliar words on the SAT I took :-D).</p>

<p>anyone else?</p>

<p>I think Barrons is bad, they overdo it. I liked Princeton Review's Hit Parade.</p>

<p>how about a long list of around 3000 words? which one is the best?</p>

<p>Go for Kaplan. You'll learn all the things you need to learn from that thing.</p>

<p>3000 words is too much. You definitely don't need to memorize that many. I memorized about 200.</p>

<p>3000 is a bit much, but I think knowing more words is in general super life and on the SAT. I quite liked the Barron's hgih frequency word list though.</p>

<p>Then reading the newspaper is a lot more helpful than just raw memorization. The New York Times, for example, uses a lot of sat words.</p>

<p>anyone else?</p>

<p>for those of you who used word lists... what was your verbal score?</p>

<p>i memorized the high frequency list (about 300 words) from barron's the week before i took the test, and my verbal went from 600 to 690, and i definitely saw a LOT of the words on the test.</p>
