5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for Advanced Students of English 31 Dec 2010
By Cathy
I'm an English teacher in Spain and find this book to be incredibly useful for students of English in an advanced level. It's also great for native speakers who want to review.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste! 28 Jun 2013
By Giedre
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Please ignore my previous review, the newer (!) edition costs a fraction of the price, this being a waste of money already! The pronunciation guidelines are hard to follow due to the non-regular system. The exercises and their order are a pain to follow, I don't feel like I am learning and I need to use additional dictionary for clarifying the pronunciation. Worst waste.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable aid. 2 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm most impressed with this book. As one who works with students, too many of whom have sadly impoverished vocabularies, I have searched for some time for a book that hits the right level and has a sufficient range of words. Bromberg and Gordon not only more than meet these criteria, they also organise the material in a structured way that is ideal for any student anxious to undertake a serious attack on increasing their word power. Those who do not wish to submit themselves to this kind of regimen can still gain enormously from regular browsing and testing.
It seems to me churlish to complain that included are some words that should be taken for granted as part of every person's vocabulary. Such suppositions as to what is commonly known can prove misplaced. In any event this book is not aimed at those interested only in the recondite, words unlikely to be met except occasionally in specialised contexts. A wide range of idioms spice up each day's exercises and expand understanding further. I would commend this book to young people in the middle and higher reaches of schools, to college students and to the general public. Not surprisingly the book has an American flavour, but there seems to me to be no worthwhile UK equivalent. It should be on every bookshelf.
