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!
Norman Lewis knows how to teach vocabulary in a way that helps new words stick. In Word Power Made Easy, he does this in several ways:
1. New words 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.
If you are here then definitely you have good choice go for it without even 2nd thought. Nice book and received in good condition . Only I dissatisfied with the price because after the successful delivered the price has decreased (change)
In the starting, I was sceptical about the book but as I started reading the sessions as stated by the author, it started changing the way I looked at words.This book explains the "root" of words and then derives the word from those roots.It really is a complicated way to learn but, yes, I have to admit, it works. P.S: - You must have intermediate knowledge of English to get started.
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 new word 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.
The book is excellent for the beginners who wish to improve their English vocabulary or plan to give GRE/TOEFL/Civils exams. The first page of the book was not printed properly. Given the pricing of the book, that's Ok.
book is good for vocab building but only need to improve binding quality size of book was bit small as compare to other books and it has about 700 pages so binding is important but it is poor in it.. but content in book was awsm.. you ill esyly build your vocab from root words
The page quality of this edition of the book is not good. Also the binding is not satisfactory. Nothing to be reviewed. An useful book which helped many throughout years. Should be regularly used to get maximum benefit out of it. Again I heartily thank AMAZON for this book.
The quality of binding is not good. You need to apply force to keep reading. Font size is small. The words seem to be cramped so sometimes it feels overwhelming. The book published by penguin much better but then it doesn't have a word list in the end.
