    1. I purchased this book because I want to expand my vocabulary. When I read (anything), I sometimes underline the words that I'm unsure of so that I can check its meaning at a later time. I've planned for a while now to make a list of the words that I've underlined/looked up and "starred" in the dictionary app that I have on my phone. The purpose of the list is to serve as a study guide and tool for quizzing myself on selected words. However, I haven't made the list and the words I've looked up an [...]

    2. Ok, so reading the dictionary is not exactly fun, but I liked this vocabulary building dictionary. I read it to help prep for the GRE, and I was pleased with the way that it lays out root words, words that fit with that root, and so forth. It helped me relate certain words with each other, and it's always good to have an overview of common roots and word origins.

    3. Among the books i bought for standardized tests preparation, i found this book most enjoyable!The words presented in the books are not too far-advanced -- like those you'll find them in GRE for example --, but they are basic words you need to know before you pursue the GRE!I love it. My vocab bank has been boosted, significantly.

    4. i love this book. It helps me build my vocabulary. Two favorite words i learned are genuflect and cecire. which means to bow on one knee as in to bow then one is standing up. and cecire is another term for a museum curator

    5. Great for lexicon review and growth. Any languagelover would find it useful. Tests and all. You canpick it up any time, while going to the bathroom orjust before bed. But be sure to read it out loud.Repeat the words at least three times. Then try touse them in sentences, both written and vocal. Muchbetter than word puzzles!

    6. An absolutely dry information overload, yet surprisingly effective. Words are organized according to shared roots and origins, with brief history and/or contextual information. Readers with a generally advanced understanding of vocabulary will even have much to gain. Includes usage activities to help the reader retain what is learned.

    7. Very useful for building one's vocabulary; it does more than just list words and their definitions, it actually explains many of the words, their origins, and how to use them correctly. This tool is well worth using.

    8. My freerice help! I really enjoy the root work sections. It helps so much to be able to take apart a word and understand why it means such and such. The point is to bring words out of the shadows and into the working vocabulary. Definitely worth a shot!

    9. I will have to read this again some day and pick up what I forgot. Building vocabulary should be a continuous effort.
