    For what it's worth...

    So far the book is good. It could improve a little on the pronunciation of the spanish words.

    Travelers will love it

    This is the ultimate travel companion. I'm fairly proficient at conversational Spanish, but still find myself groping occasionally for the right word. So what I did is buy Mastering Spanish Vocabulary and carry it with me when traveling.<BR/><BR/>The chapters in this book are grouped by theme. This makes it very easy to pull the right word out when you have a specific one in mind. There are 24 groups of words built around these themes ¿ things like culture, business, dining, and food. The way I use this book is to review vocabulary for upcoming situations. For example, if I'm going to be taking a train ride, I¿d study the words in the transportation chapter.<BR/><BR/>Reading Mastering Spanish Vocabulary has definitely improved my vocabulary. The manner in which the words are grouped helps me to remember what I¿ve studied. All of the words have examples of usage which is also helpful. Be aware, though, that the examples require a moderate amount of proficiency as far as sentence structure. Buy yourself a copy of Learning Spanish Like Crazy and you'll be up to speed quickly. Then you can polish up with supplementary materials like this one.

    an objective rating

    this gets 5 stars. how anyone can give it 1 star because it wasn't quite right for his/her level mystifies me. subjective ratings like that are not useful. an objective rating is 5, because the words are arranged according to subject matter, the best way for teaching!

    GOOD BOOK FOR BEGINNERS

    This book is for a beginning spanish student who wishes to expand his/her vocabulary. It is not for the advanced college student; it includes very basic vocabulary divided into different sections relating to a specific field. It is well structured but only for a beginning student; being an advanced student, I was very disappointed & returned it.
