Book Description

27 Oct 2000 0764113658 978-0764113659 4th Revised edition
A Barron's bestseller for years, this book is better than ever in a brand new fourth edition. In addition to its standard vocabulary lists, this edition includes a new section called Panorama of Words. In this feature, each of the 1100 words appears in a sentence selected from among well known novels, plays, poems, and even newspaper editorials and TV broadcasts. The book is a vocabulary builder aimed directly at college-bound high school students, as well as college students who need extra vocabulary help. Students will find word lists with definitions, analogy exercises, entertaining word games, and fascinating words-in-context exercises.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun way to build your vocabulary! 24 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Vocabulary building can be quite boring, hence it is easy to forget the meaning of new words learnt, but this book makes vocabulary building enjoyable. Not only are you giving words and meanings, you are also given excercises to do on a daily bases this structure helps to retain knowledge, so that each day you are looking forward to the next excercise knowing that you are not doing too little or too much.
Words learnt in one excercise also appear in the following excercise and this makes one become accustomed to the word...I would recommend this book anyday!

I bought this book a few years ago. It's still a great book. I highly recommend it to anyone.

As I'm a late learner in my forties, I would say this book has much augmented my vocabulary. Moreover, I've bought nearly ALL the vocabulary books from this website. I have SAT vocabulary books as well, all great too.
My review on this book: I rate it as one of the very BEST. I most read this book during tea breaks, during quiet period of business in shop, during babysitting. It has all the key answers to questions, articles with examples of usage, etc. Blank spaces around text allows me to pencil down my notes, mostly examples of usages. Every page has my pencilled notes. That's how much I love the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and would suit KS3 6 Dec 2007
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Echoing the other reviews this book sticks to the task of giving a few words every day in the context of a short piece taken from a wide range of source types. My slight reservations are around the US authorship (and a lot is -ize instead of -ise to explain to my kids).

Having now got this I realise it is aimed at reasonably advance KS3 readers (and indeed adults, there being many words I now find out I don't quite use correctly).
