Word Power Made Easy New Revised & Expanded Edition (English) 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.124

Word Power Made Easy intends to help improve the readers’ all-round language skills.

Summary Of The Book

This book, Word Power Made Easy, uses real life situations to demonstrate the power of words. The book begins by showing the reader how to assess their current vocabulary and how to start building word skills. It is divided into three main sections.

Word Power Made Easy starts by showing how to start building word skills, and then explains how to acquire better word skills quickly and learn at a faster pace. Then, the book shows how one can become proficient in building vocabulary, and how to keep learning new words and ways to use them.

This book uses interesting themes to show how to use words effectively. It contains chapters like insulting or flattering enemies and friends, talking about various professions, successfully discussing science and scientists, describing actions effectively and so on. Word Power Made Easy takes a root of the word based approach to vocabulary building. It traces the etymology of the words being discussed. Once the origin of the word is explained, a lot of similar words sharing the same origin are introduced. This technique is useful in remembering a lot of words, as they are related by a common source which serves as a mnemonic.

The book also contains an interesting section on esoteric phobias. It contains pronunciation keys, a test of grammar skills, and a section discussing how grammar changed over the years. It provides tips on proper usage, how to adapt to changing usage, and shows how to acquire the skill of natural speech without any affectations. It contains a list of some words that have recently been added to the language and shows how to build proper spelling skills.

Word Power Made Easy is an easy, practical guide to building a good vocabulary, learning about proper usage, pronunciation, and spelling. The book was first published in 1949.

***Excellent Service***

I ordered this book through this site. I was told that I would get delivery in 5-7 working days but I got the delivery on the Third day itself. Packing was very good.Got good discount also. The discounted rate is lesser than the rate at any retail book store.Another advantage is free home delivery. I am very satisfied with the service and would definitely order goods in future. I would recommend everyone to try the service.

Great book if you want to increase your vocabulary

If you want to learn English then this book is not for you , Go for English grammar book like J.C Nesfield . But if you are better in English then this book is for you , it's an ultimate choice to learn more words and increase one's vocabulary.
It is very much helpful if you preparing for exams like C.A.T , M.A.T , X.A.T , G.A.T.E , etc
For C.A.T you should have vocabulary of 5000 words if u want to crack it , seriously 686 pages is enough .
For G.A.T.E - generally we get 15 marks out of 100 in aptitude and English section and this year 2012 General cut-off was 21 marks . So if you score 15...

First chapter of the book will let u know about extend of knowledge you have in English language , unfortunately it very difficult for a guy like me to score 40 out of 60 which is depressing but hope it will rectified in future
Don't keep this book in your bookshelf , READ IT SOLVE IT REVISE IT ATLEAST 1 CHAPTER per day

It makes learning new words a fun activity. After reading this book, you will start absorbing new words like a sponge.

The book takes you on a piggyback ride through the etymological road introducing you to new words and the story behind its origin. In case you are wondering what is Etymology (I too didn't know till I started to read this book), Etymology is the study of the sources and development of words by tracing the its history and how the word was incorporated into English.
Instead of depicting the words in English just as words, this book introduces to the story behind its origin, what is their
significance, how to use those words, when to use those words and when not to use it.

By using the root words it demonstrates how so many words in English have common origins and how we can predict the
meaning of new words using these root words.

This book has guided countless number of people in their quest of gaining mastery over English by making it fun. Seek its guidance and mark my words, it won't fail you.

the best way to enrich your vocab..!

Many confuse improving vocab with learning word meanings by rote and consider it as a tedious effort. Especially for those preparing for various aptitude exams, like me, need to have a vocab replete with good words, this book will obviate the need to mug up meanings which is anyway futile, because we tend to forget them in some days. Getting to know new words and their usage in appropriate situations has never been easier.

Introducing readers to new words through word-roots is an innovative technique on the part of the author, and a fun-filled process for the reader too! Moreover, it will surely help you develop interest in etymological derivations and some anecdotes here and there which tell how a word came into being.. The book simply doesn't leave you at its last page, when you're done you have the knowledge and the tact of locating the words with same origins and deriving their meanings there itself, whether you come across them in newspapers, magazines, novels,etc.

Undoubtedly, you'll be happy with the results!

THE BEST vocabulary builder!

I had heard about getting this book at a very cheap price on this site...so I purchased it here and I am happy with the delivery two days before the due date! I have started reading this book and have finished 11 sessions and I can say that this book is only the way to go when it comes to honing your vocabulary skills at a faster rate and in lesser time. The only thing here is that you have to come to this book on a daily basis and finish atleast one session per sitting so that you stay in touch with your progress.

The only thing here is that you have to come to this book on a daily basis and finish atleast one session per sitting so that you stay in touch with your progress. The *feel good* factor comes into picture when you flip through your previous sessions of the book and you notice that you are able to recollect what you have studied and remembered, with such ease!!!! The methods applied in the book helps you grasp and recollect the meanings and the ideas behind the words with no difficulty at all! And that is how you feel good about your improving vocabulary...!! I recommend this book to everyone who wants to improve their vocabulary.
