A good vocabulary is essential to succeeding on tests, in class, or on the job. This self-paced tutorial consists of 20 lessons and numerous practice exercises created specifically to give readers a thorough grounding in every facet of a strong vocabulary, including pronunciation, spelling, context, definitions, word parts, denotation and connotation, synonyms, and antonyms. The book begins with a pretest to diagnose students' word knowledge and ends with a posttest that shows how much they've learned. A bonus appendix provides valuable study tips to help improve retention of new words.
