The Marino Mission is a fun and painless way to master 1,000 tough SAT vocabulary words.

Even better, words are defined at the bottom of each page so you don t have to flip to the back of the book to find definitions. Plus, self tests at the end of the novel help you retain what you learn and prepare for test day. Once you open up The Marino Mission , you'll hardly know you're studying at all!

Reviews

The Marino Mission...a better read than prior attempts at this concept, which tried too hard to cram in large words. (Miami Herald, February 26, 2005)
