About the book:

There has never been a book that exploits the power of word roots as thoroughly as the Vocabulary Quick Reference. Its audience includes students studying for college entrance exams, teachers, libraries, medical students and practitioners, biology students, ESL students, and numerous others who don't fall into any of these categories but just want to improve their vocabulary. The Vocabulary Quick Reference is the only book of its kind. It gives 260 Greek and Latin word roots, which are listed in the primary root index at the beginning of the book. This book is unique in that for each word root, it gives a complete list of words that contain that root. The keyword section is also unique in that it provides a comprehensive alphabetical list of the most important words (keywords) from each definition. This list brings many related words together so they can be studied together, as well as providing a method for looking up a word through its meaning. All words that are related are referenced. Complete etymology and pronunciation are provided for each word.

Three-colored text is used for selective emphasis of critical information. Red text indicates a very common word. This is especially helpful to students studying for the SAT. The blue words within each dictionary definition provide a shorter and easier-to- remember definition embedded within each complete definition and also comprise the alphabetical list in the keyword section.

The clever organization of this unique book results in a vocabulary learning tool that is packed with information, yet is not intimidating.
