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.

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.

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. 🙂
