<p>I've been noticing that Larry Krieger's 300 Essential Words has been quickly gaining currency among leading SAT vocab books; it is trend that honestly seems to have overtaken Direct Hits's (Krieger's other book) dominance.
Other books like Barron's vocab (a more laconic list within the longer list, at least) have also been taking off and being proven to be more effective (effective as in those threads where released SATs are analyzed for words).</p>
<p>So is it time we bury Direct Hits in favor of newer books like 300 Essential Words? I'm really beginning to myself focus in on SAT vocab, and with a month left of studying, I really don't want my option be to memorize a 2,000 word list since all else is overtly debatable. </p>
<p>What SAT vocab reign in the AAA club now?</p>
