Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This CD-ROM is based on the book of the same title (Merriam Webster, 1994), and we can tell you right away that the book has one major advantage: no corny "personal trainer" guides, that mar an otherwise good presentation. The goal here is to increase one's vocabulary through an understanding of the Latin and Greek roots of many words. There is a combination of games and quizzes as one travels though the disc. Beware: these are not always easy! Bottom Line: If they get rid of the personal trainers, then our itch will go away and we'll use this disc. Actually, even with them, this is still a useful disc. It works. Recommended for the home and for circulating collections.

    wonderful edition to the dictionary and thesaurus!!!!!!!

    I loved this book. It was very useful to me. It helped me remember words like antebellum 'existing before war' and bellicose 'warllike and aggresive'. I liked how it was set up. The only problem I had with this book was that it didn't say whether the word was a verb, adjective, adverb, noun, etc...

    Really good one.

    I would really recommend this book, because it has roots, pronunciation for those words that we're not familiar with, examples, good definitions, and quizzes.

    This book is the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like this book because it was easy to understand and also very informative. Now let me say this. The book is not for someone trying to rush and study for an exam. Try it and see how much you like it. Go Merriam - Webster!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    not as good as other vocab. builders

    Alot of words are good, but 3,000 is to much. Not all of these words are frequently used. This book doesn't provide enough review excersises to actually absorb all of the words. The review sections are very brief and not cumlative.
