Announcing the Vocabulary Builder Workbook by Chris LeLe

Over the years, I’ve taught vocabulary to many students. Maybe you’ve learned these words from my YouTube series Vocabulary Wednesday, the fiendishly difficult GRE Text Completion questions, or the Clemmonsdogpark blog posts where I often sprinkle these words in. Regardless, these words have been spread across the Internet and aren’t so easy to find.

Well, for the first time, I’ve collected many of these words (and some new ones!) in one easy to access place: an actual physical book. It’s called the and contains 1,400 words (it’s available for pre-order on ).

However, it doesn’t just list words. Rather, it gives colorful example sentences, interesting word histories, and easy-to-remember definitions.

But there’s more! As a huge advocate of the use-it-or-lose-it approach to learning, I’ve provided exercises at the bottom of each chapter to reinforce learning. Fill-in-the-blank questions, matching, word unscrambles…they’re all here to help you retain many of the important words you might see on test day.

Want a sneak peek? Here are a few excerpts!

The is perfect if you are studying for the GRE and want an effective way to retain words. But it’s also perfect if you want to improve your reading comprehension abilities, whether you are taking a standardized test like the SAT or are entering college and will have a formidable (yep, that word is in the book!) workload. Or maybe you simply want to add some pep to your prose, enrich your vocabulary, or impress your friends with your newfound verbal sophistication (or all three)!

So and let me know how you like it. 🙂

    I have got a copy of this book. It is the best. Thank you for the great work !

    But I just want to know about the 4/5 words at the last of each lesson, of which
    there are no examples, etymologies or tidbits. Is there any source of these words’ etymology or tidbits?
    I found them interesting how you described those. I just need those all 1400 words with etymology, tidbits and other analysis.
    Can you help me with this, please?

      Hi Zaidur,

      So glad you’ve been enjoying Chris’s new book! I assume you’re referring to the words in the grey sidebar in each lesson (ex: predilection, precipitate, predicate, and presentiment in lesson 1). For those additional words, I recommend looking up the etymology and other fun facts on Wordnik.com or Vocabulary.com. Either of those two sites makes a great unofficial supplement to the book.
