Summary: The extraordinary success of the TP vocabulary books is no accident. Instructors who have used the books in ever-increasing numbers over the past five years have discovered that these reasonably-priced vocabulary books really work. By raising weak vocabulary levels, the sequence of books helps students improve their reading and writing skills, do far better on standardized reading tests, and meet the demands of college work.

Research studies show that stud moreents learn words best by seeing them repeatedly in different contexts, not through rote memorization. The TP vocabulary books present each word in eight to ten different contexts. Every encounter increases the chance that a word will become part of a student's permanent word bank.

Advanced Word Power teaches 300 advanced level words--ones that occur with high frequency on standardized tests. It is suitable for students who have successfully completed Advancing Vocabulary Skills. It is also an excellent text for college-bound students seeking to prepare for the SAT and similar college-entrance tests.

  • Inferential exercises. To get students interacting with new words right from the start, each chapter begins by asking students to infer the meaning of a word based on its use in two sentences. On the basis of their inferences, students then choose the best meaning from multiple-choice options.
  • Many reinforcement activities. As with the other TP vocabulary books, each chapter gives students five opportunities to test their understanding of the new words--and unit tests at the end of every five chapters provide additional practice. Chapters 2 to 30 also repeat words from earlier chapters, allowing for more reinforcement than ever.
  • A new, highly enjoyable activity. Each set of unit tests contains a fun-to-do crossword puzzle that reinforces mastery of the new words.
  • Ease of grading. Answer spaces can be filled in either with a letter (so that a Scantron machine or answer key can be used) or with the word itself. less
