In the case of this series, the sum is definitely more than the total of its parts. As the most important Latin and Greek roots are studied, students increase their vocabularies far more than the 240 words actually presented, since these roots form the basis for many additional words. Roots are grouped thematically in worktexts, with each of the sixteen lessons in every book introducing up to 15 words derived from two or more classical roots. Each lesson begins with a "root dictionary". The root and root forms are shown and defined in bold type, followed by English word(s) derived from that root. Each English word is shown in dictionary format with pronunciation key, definition(s) and word forms each followed by a sentence showing correct word usage in context. Small side boxes list additional words that are formed from the same root. A variety of exercises based on synonyms, antonyms, analogies, vocabularies in context, and sentence completion are provided at the end of lessons to insure mastery. The many literary, historical and geographical references are designed to increase the student's cultural literacy. After every two lessons, a creative or expository writing assignment is suggested, using words from the lessons , allowing the student to put into practice the words he's learned.

Answers are available in the answer key, but if you want a little more help, opt for the Teacher Key. The Teacher Key is a valuable resource, as it complements, extends, and enriches the series. It provides tips for individual learning needs and shows how to ensure that students are building upon earlier skills. It gives support for every lesson, provides blackline masters to reinforce key words, gives additional review activities and vocabulary games, and includes a glossary and answer key for the student books.

A test booklet (with answers) is available. You get a lot of educational value for your money here. This series would be beneficial to parents too - especially those that didn't attend parochial school or study the classical languages!

I liked Vocabulary Classical Roots C for my high-schooler and am starting my 7th grader on the series. The tests provide a nice evaluation of how well my student is absorbing the information. They are simple multiple-choice and easily graded. I also appreciated that they have a section on word analogies and I was able to detect that this is an area where my student needs to spend some focus.

Well Trained Mind recommended... We've enjoyed the first levels and plan on continuing. Nice to have the answer key so that it's easier to check my daughter's work.

"""Classical Roots has been a great tool in keeping Latin and Greek Roots in my children's minds. It has helped them with spelling and with being able to deduce the meaning of words."""

We made it trough the entire A book in less than a school year, so I will be using the test booklet as review for the last few weeks of school.

The teacher's guide suggests giving cumulative tests after lessons 4, 8, 12 and 16. Does this test booklet (or any of the other resources) contain those cumulative tests?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This test booklet is all you need for testing their vocabulary retension.
Hello! I'm wondering if this test booklet is a write-in booklet, or better used to make copies for multiple students?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is a write-in booklet, but I had my children write their answers on paper. I believe the questions are multiple choice only. If more than one child is going to use it, I would make copies or have children use their own paper. Hope that helps. :)
Do I need to buy the answer key separate from this test booklet?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The test booklet includes answers to the tests. The answer key booklet has answers to all the exercises. If you purchase the teacher's guide it includes answers to the exercises, so you do not need to purchase the answer key in addition to the guide.
