VocabAhead SAT Vocabulary - a Review

VocabAhead SAT Vocabulary: Cartoons, Videos & MP3s covers the bases with various teaching methods. There are cartoons in the book for each of the 300 vocabulary words, as well as online video* and audio files you'll be able to access with a code from the book. Being able to teach to both auditory and visual learners is very helpful and so much more interesting for your student(s) than a dry workbook or flash cards.

Having MP3 audio files is a wonderful feature because you can listen in the car, upload to your iPod or other music player, providing another opportunity for review. It's also nice to have someone pronounce the words for those that you may not be familiar with.

From the website:

"VocabAhead, with the help of talented artists, high school teachers and professional narrators created this product so students involved in building strong vocabulary have best possible material. VocabAhead is dedicated to coming up with methods and techniques which would simplify the process of building a strong vocabulary. Strong vocabulary is not only essential in doing excellent in standardized Tests like SAT but also key to professional development and getting ahead in your career."

After every ten words, there's a review page. The first part of the review is a matching exercise and the second portion is fill-in-the-blank.

The products are available at Amazon. The book can be purchased by itself for $12.95 or you can buy the book with the DVD that contains the video* and audio files for $16.99.

There is also a book/DVD combo available that contains 1,000 SAT vocabulary words for $24.99.

* Personally, I wouldn't call them videos - they're the cartoons from the book with audio narration.

As always, go check out what other reviewers had to say about VocabAhead SAT Vocabulary at the TOS Crew Blog.
