THE WORLD OF WORDS: VOCABULARY FOR COLLEGE SUCCESS, Eighth Edition, is designed to teach you the vocabulary you need for academic success. But Professor Margaret Richek also shares time-tested methods for learning unfamiliar words on your own. To make learning new words easier, fun photographs provide clues to word meanings. Included online exercises let you test your understanding of vocabulary words, and audio lessons teach you how to pronounce each word correctly. Through a series of carefully paced lessons, you will learn three critical skills: learning to make the dictionary work for you; discovering how to figure out a word's meaning without the help of a dictionary; and gaining understanding of hundreds of words by learning the meaning of just a few dozen Greek and Latin roots. Easy to use and entertaining, THE WORLD OF WORDS: VOCABULARY FOR COLLEGE SUCCESS, Eighth Edition, will open up a whole new world of words for you.
