The 3,500 Basic Word List?

<p>Before I commit myself to such an enormous word list as Barron's 3,500 Basic Word List, I wanted to make sure I would be getting my time's worth.</p>

<p>So, is the general consensus that this list is one of the best? I know it usually gets the most hits next to DirectHits.</p>

<p>It might get a lot of hits, but it is highly inefficient. It is certainly not the general concensus that the list is one of the best.</p>

<p>I don't think you need to memorize 3500 words. Google "1000 most common SAT words" and download the first pdf that comes up. I studied that and got 800 on CR and W first try. You should be fine.</p>

<p>Alright, thanks a bunch. Looks like that is the Sparknotes list.</p>
