    Description

    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.

    This is not a reading book...

    Don't read this book!
    Instead, work with it. Write in it, talk aloud to it, talk back to it- use your pen or pencil, your voice, not just your eyes and mind.

    This has been written in the introduction of this book.. And I am glad to announce that it is more than that... You not only work with it but live with the book, once you will pick it up you will feel like going on and on.. But follow the instructions because it is well organized for the maximum optimization..

    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 ...

    ***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.
