    definitely not, u will be reading while ur brain just goes to sleep out of boredom. reading a book might help with your english but there are plenty of websites that offer study guides and help on the toefl and sats.

    Yea not a good idea. You'll be tested on comprehension. The best thing you can do is read a lot LOT of stuff like books, newspapers, magazines. Everytime you don't know a word you must look it up and remember it.

  • Not a good idea. Not speaking of how boring it will be, but you can hardly remember anything from dictionary.

    not a good idea, your brain will never remeber words that you are rading and cramming into your head

    best advice is to put words on index cards and then go 10cards at a time and memorize them then mov eonto 10 more cards.

    best way, i'm doing it, it works, easy, and i suck at words and english
