Striking an inviting balance of seriousness and humor, Jack Shreve's writing draws students' attention to his subject, making them feel involved and interested. College Vocabulary Development, 3e presents much more than merely so many lists of words, the meanings of which must be memorized out of the context of their regular usage. Rather, this text provides firm cognitive anchors through head notes, arrangement of material, and detailed questions that are all integral parts of each unit. This unique approach helps students expand their vocabularies in a far more natural manner than allowed by most vocabulary texts. In turn, students find themselves prepared not only to use their expanded vocabulary, but to understand what they're saying, as well.
