What is the Vocabulary List? The following quotation comes
from Jim Burke’s home page.
“A thorough survey of various textbooks, assignments, content
area standards, and examinations yields the following list of words.
You cannot expect to succeed on assignments if you do not
understand the directions. The words fall into several categories,
which are not identified on this sheet: nouns (e.g., What you read
or create); verbs (e.g., What the assignment asks you to do);
A Barron's bestseller for years, this book is better than ever in a brand new fourth edition. In addition to its standard vocabulary lists, this edition includes a new section called Panorama of Words. In this feature, each of the 1100 words appears in a sentence selected from among well known novels, plays, poems, and even newspaper editorials and TV broadcasts. The book is a vocabulary builder aimed directly at college-bound high school students, as well as college students who need extra vocabulary help.
No vocabulary book can cover all of the words you might come across on
a standardized test, and here we have limited our list to just over 350 words.
But this book is not just about building your word base; it is also about
building those essential skills that can help you determine the meaning of
words you don’t know. The vocabulary words in this book have been carefully
chosen to reflect not only what you are likely to see on an exam, but
also what you are likely to come across regularly in books, newspapers, lectures,
and other daily activities....
