This book develops vocabulary skills at the readers own pace and gives immediate feedback by letting them check their own progress. It is organized around word parts, word types, and words from different disciplines. The book contains exercises that require repeated recall of each defined word. It stresses the use of descriptive words and muscular verbs and encourages the elimination of wordiness and clichés. It includes Latin and Greek roots and prefixes to illuminate hundreds of derivatives and it offers descriptive and action words to enhance reading comprehension and writing ability. The fifth edition of Programmed College Vocabulary has been revised to include three new chapters (Short Words I, Short Words II, Characterization Words) featuring simple, useful words as well as two additional chapters (Natural Science & Fine Arts and Philosophy) that expose the reader to terms from other disciplines. A valuable reference book for any reader who wishes to strengthen his reading, writing, and vocabulary skills.George W. Feinstein is the author of 'Programmed College Vocabulary (7th Edition)', published 2005 under ISBN 9780131487666 and ISBN 0131487663.
