The words you use say a lot about you. Some words say that you are smart, eloquent, or persuasive. Others say that, uh, you don't know what you're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind and making a lasting impression. Here's a quiz to help you rate the state of your vocabulary:
Do you know that to peruse a book is not to skim through it?
Do you know the difference between enormous and enormity?
Do you know the noun form of dubious?
If you answered no to any of these questions, you need Word Smart. Based on the best selling book, the audio Word Smart will help you learn the words you absolutely need to know!
This program features concise, accurate definitions; great examples and stories that teach words in context; and mnemonics to make it all stick.

Some word seem to be common sense, needs to come with a digital booklet. Since, the hard copy comes with a list of words to review spelling.
The Book is Good but
The book is good, but the book(recording) states it comes with an download that show the words. It does not! It would be helpful to see the words, but I can't.
I bought this product with hopes of a more enjoyable way to expand my vocabulary. I tried to like this product (especially since it's a good chunk of money) and I gave it a fair amount of my time. In the end, I found it to be ineffective for these reasons:
- The script is boring. It tries to be witty, but really comes of as cheesy/corny
- I found myself constantly rewinding. The material just doesn't sink in. The stories and dialogue aren't memorable. Perhaps this is so because of the pace. I'd rather have fewer words and actually learn those words, than sweep through many words and have to backtrack. I'd say on average the amount of time spent listening to the material was TRIPLED because of rewinding.
- The voices are a bit stuff and robotic to me
In the end I stopped listening Word Smart. It was just too laborious.
