For undergraduate courses in Vocabulary Development at all levels, or as a supplement to Composition, Freshman English, Remedial English, Business English, Learning Center, or Reading courses. Using an enjoyable and highly successful approach that is a welcome alternative to the dull, grim approach of most other word books, this time-honored, programed vocabulary development work-text prepares students for college coursework by focusing specifically on literary and academic terms (e.g., from fiction, poetry, psychology, social sciences, etc.). Students work at their own pace through easy, incremental steps--each of which elicits student responses and provides immediate verification of their answers. Emphasis throughout is on communication skills, and content is organized around word parts, word types, and specific words from different academic disciplines.
