2.0 out of 5 starsDespondent over the quality of book
18 October 2018
I haven't read it yet but who would actually have any keenness left after seeing the quality of pages. If your paying for the full book why only half white quality pages while the other half are yellow very low quality dusky paper used which will in no time get ripped off easily. Disappointed!
This is a great book for developing your vocabulary. Instead of giving you a bunch of words to basically cram, this book has a structured approach where you learn some words which all share a root or common theme. The book has abundant exercises which will really hammer the words into the reader's memory. Highly recommended to all aspirants of competitiveexams and also anyone who wants to polish their personality by learning better words.

Respect to cost it's too good to learn vocabulary. I'm pretty sure if you cover this very less will be remain to learn. Almost every competitiveexam you can beat others. Light weight - you can carry everywhere as you want.

Learning new words can be boring if you go my rote learning. The book uses the root concept and is very good if you plan to appear for competitiveexams (inc GRE, GMAT, SAT etc), but you need to start it 4-6 months before the exam. May take about a month to finish if you learn 1-2 lessons per day. It may also provide some help if you come across any new word if they are based on the roots
An awesome book and a must have if you seriously think about building your vocabulary. This book talks about words, their origins and many more. It increases our vocabulary multi fold. If you are preparing for any competitiveexams, you must read it. Even if you are not, if you are serious about becoming more proficient in English, this book teaches a lot.
I have read this book when I attended GRE exam back in 1987. It's still the best book for picking up English words. Now I have bought this one for my daughter who is in 1st year B.Tech. The book has undergone good number of changes which suits today's competitiveexams. I suggest it without any reservations. A must book for all graduating students.
