For the serious student, this series by Educator's Publishing Service teaches all conceivable types of analogies, as well as the art of selecting the "closest" or most likely analogy and why. Besides giving them a "leg up" on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT, studying analogies will help hone their analytical thinking, ability to discriminate, and understanding of relationships between words and ideas. Gains made here should also be reflected in higher reading comprehension skills, increased vocabulary, and the ability to communicate effectively. Each book consists of three parts. Part one presents a step-by-step approach to solving analogy problems, including strategies students can master and use. These techniques are taught in depth in book one of the series and reviewed in books two and three. Part two in each book contains 15-20 units, with each unit comprised of 20 problems. These are the actual practice questions. Part three is a reference section presenting groups of 100 words, alphabetized and defined, that represent some of the most challenging vocabulary used in the analogies.
Separate quiz booklets are also available, which directly correspond to the Analogy Groups and Vocabulary Groups in the books. Each quiz includes 20 multiple choice questions
