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!
Received this book with some pages folded and 4 pages missing in between. But not to worry as Amazon will issue refund for the same.
This is the 4th time I've bought this book to gift to someone who is starter in english vocab building. The book is something more than enough for about 100 ₹. It gives best way to understand the words by linking it to its entomological origin and teaches us how to understand the meaning of a newword. It also helps in eliminating wrong options in mcq based exams. You can learn a lot of newwords by simply going through exercise. Religiously following this book daily would surely help you build your vocabulary. Those who cram words from dictionary should at least try this approach of learning to remember words and I'm sure this way would be far better.
Good Book. You won't get list of words in this book to improve your vocabulary overnight. It has various chapters, each teaching you new set of root words and there various combination leading to newwords. As author says " Don't just read this book , Instead work with it!!! " After reading the whole book you will surely feel the improvement.
Norman Lewis knows how to teach vocabulary in a way that helps newwords stick. In Word Power Made Easy, he does this in several ways:
1. Newwords are divided into thematic chapters that make it easy to draw connections between the words. 2. He uses etymology as the scaffold to help build a knowledge of many related words simultaneously. 3. All words are reviewed multiple times in exercises throughout the book that use a variety of ways to measure recall and understanding.
What I love about this book is it's arrangements of chapters and step-by- step method which really help to learn newwords and uses of the words perfectly. Overall I love this book and recommend to all who wants to improve their English Vocabulary.
It’s an awesome book. It’s highly recommended for the people who are trying to improve their vocabulary. It’s easy to read and it helps to understand a newword and it’s formation, making it easier to remember the words for a long time. It’s for all the age groups from kids, teenagers to adults. It would be very useful for kids at school and college goers for writing their essays and theory papers.
One of the best book that I came across for vocabulary building. The has makes one understand the root of words and then elucidate it with examples. Make aware of root of words is something that I find new in it. And after continuing the schedule one can witness the change.
