    This title is laser focused on making you sound smarter become more respected by using them. Simply systematically eliminated words that did meet this model that are perfectly good words for other purposes. First excluded were slang and popular culture words such as angst, avant-garde, Catch 22, kitsch, red herring, and white elephant. These are all useful words to know, just not in this context. Then eliminated were those words whose meanings are often misconstrued such as disinterested and complement/compliment. And finally eliminated were those words that sound awkward in speech such as accolade, baroque, epiphany, philistine, tete-a-tete, tryst, unrequited, and waft. Included words must sound appropriate, work seamlessly, and not be "show off" words. The final test is the words had to be those that people nodded slightly at when heard because they enhanced meaning and not elicit a slight grimace. So we worked hard to eliminate grimace words.

    This is the second in this series of Core Words. After learning the first 100, this audiobook has the core 500 words used in the SATs and GREs over the last 50 years. This audiobook is best used after the Core 100 words are mastered so as not to intimidate the student. The first audiobook is quick and brief, just focusing on the core knowledge needed for doing well in this area of the test as well as becoming a better reader and writer. Choate learned that the first step in learning a subject should be an easy accessible one. Most Test Prep books strut across the stage with length and depth that is intimidating to anyone from a PhD on down. Imagine the negative impact on a high school student? Less is more in the early steps of learning. Later the students can expand their knowledge if not crushed in the first contact with it. If this simple approach was good enough to help Choate students get into Harvard, it should be good for the rest of us! Enjoy. It’s fun to test oneself on these words, no matter your purpose for doing so. This is a perfect listen on the way to school, work, or the test itself!
