1100 Words You Need to Know 8th ed.
Expand and improve your vocabulary in just 15 minutes a day with Barron's! For nearly 40 years, this best-selling book has helped countless students (and adults) learn new vocabulary words to assist in their studies, college entrance exams, and overall reading comprehension. This book contains 46 weeks (plus two bonus weeks) of "lessons," with each week containing five daily lessons. These lessons introduce five new vocabulary words that students learn by reading a brief passage, completing sample sentences, and matching each word to its definition. An idiom is introduced at the bottom of each lesson page as well (briefly defined, with a sample sentence). Each daily vocabulary lesson is only one page, and the exercises are fun, interesting and bite-sized. The book contains a variety of review exercises to test prior words studied, and the end of the book has a multiple-choice Final Review Test as well as pages containing real-life quotes that use the vocabulary words. Index and answer key included, 400 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
