Vocabulary Development for College

  • Nov 28, 2009
Rating:
+5
This is an excellent reference book for
the SAT exam, as well as vocabulary development
for college bound students. The book is highly
organized. Each word is presented as follows:
o pronunciation
o grammar or part of speech i.e. noun, verb, adjective...
o inflection points
o label or special area of knowledge
o examples of usage
o etymologies tracing the history of the word
i.e. Old English or Modern English
o related words, if any
o notes on word history
o pronunciation key or guide

Here are some sample words contained in the volume:
o abjure
o circumlocution
o equinox
o hegemony
o jejune
o nihilism
o oligarchy
o oxidize
o pecuniary
o supercilious
o tectonic
o ziggurat

I would purchase this book for collegiate prep and study.
