Overview

Webster's new Explorer Vocabulary Skill Builder is designed to achieve two goals: to add a large number of words your permanent working vocabulary, and to teach the most useful of classical word-building roots to help you continue expanding your vocabulary in the future.

In order to achieve these goals, this volume employs an original approach that takes into account how people learn and remember. Many vocabulary builders simply present their words in alphabetical order, many provide little or no discussion of the words and how to use them, and a few even fail to show the kinds of sentences in which the words usually appear. But memorizing a series of random and unrelated things, especially for more than a few hours, can be difficult and time-consuming. The fact is that we tend to remember words easily and naturally when they appear in some meaningful text, when they have been shown to be useful and therefore worth remembering, and when they have been properly explained to us. Knowing precisely how to use a word is just as important as knowing what it means, and this book provides that need additional information.

I bought this for my 12 1/2 year old grandson and he's learning a lot from it.
