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 students 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.

Like the two other main books in the series, Building Vocabulary Skills teaches 260 essential words and 40 word parts.


New Features in the Second Edition:

1. 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.

2. Even more reinforcement activities. As before, each chapter gives students five opportunities to test their understanding of the new words--and unit tests at the end of every six chapters provide additional practice. Now most chapters also repeat words from earlier chapters, allowing for more reinforcement than ever.

3. A new, highly enjoyable activity. Each set of unit tests now contains a fun-to-do crossword puzzle that reinforces mastery of the new words.

4. An even more pleasing design. A larger print has been used in the second edition, making each book exceptionally clear and appealing.
