Extremely effective way of learning words. Relevant for GRE.This book is probably one of the most efficient one as in takes a very scientific approach to understand and remember words. It is composed of around 1 sections and every section focuses on one genre of words. Each section is split into 4-5 chapters. First chapter introduces you to 10 new words by explaining the context. You are supposed to by-heart these 10 words. Subsequent chapters introduces you to hundreds of different words whose root and meaning can be derived from the 10 words you learnt in the last chapter. Every chapter has very carefully designed set of questions to permanently writ… (Expand)

A Definitive Must-Have !One of those books that you just need to get. Not only does this book teach you words, it also teaches you how to learn anything effectively. Its broken into a number of sessions and has periodic reviews. And it teaches you words using an interesting method in such a way that you ll remember them...years later. I would recommend this to anybody who uses the English Language..

Great Service but Substandard Product ShippedI received the book within 2 days of the order. The book is an excellent resource for building one's vocabulary. However, the seller of the book shipped me a substandard copy as some pages in between are missing. My copy had a total of 17 pages missing. And those 17 pages were in the midst of word list provided at the end of the chapter; so in aggregation it consisted of a lot of words. Unfortunately, I found this out after a month; so I don't have an option to return it.
