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

This book does an excellent job of explaining analogies. It first teaches the student how to make a "bridge sentence", a sentence which describes how the first pair of words are related. This exercise focuses the student's thinking and helps the student choose which word best completes the analogy.

Got part way into it and stopped
My now 9th grade son has been doing analogy books for years. This is only the second one we have given up on. The main reason was that many of the analogies had two perfectly fine answers (IMHO), depending on how you linked the first two terms and whether or not you decided a word was a noun or a verb (e.g., "guard"). I realize that for SATs etc you have to be able to pick the "best" analogy, but in my opinion, in many cases where my son identified a different answer than the key, I didn't see how their choice was any "better" than his. It was very frustrating for him to constantly be getting 25 - 50% "wrong", so we stopped. The book contains a tutorial on doing analogies (including 3 sets of 10 warm-up analogies), a section of 15 pages of 20 analogies (5 pair choices each), and "vocabulary" section, which is essential a glossary of 300 words with very short definitions. Answers are included.
