Have you tried them? These are novels written for the purpose of using the most frequently used vocab words on the SAT. They use like 1,000 words in each book and lists the def. of each word on the bottom of the page it appears on. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has used them, and if they work. I'm interested in buying a couple, but don't want to waste my money on a book that doesn't help.

I imagine they could be helpful/interesting, but I've never read them. I love sparknotes stuff though.

Maybe I'll pick one up. There like 7 bucks. Not bad for study materials.

personally sun-kissed seems more interesting
than simon's saga or ROM and that's why i bought that.

but i think(based only on sun-kissed), Sparknotes SAT novels contains more, say, medium or less hard vocabs. (i am not good at vocab so it's good for me to start off)
