Review:

: "THE LEAST YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT VOCABULARY BUILDING: WORD ROOTS is a good and inexpensive book that gives students exposure to many word roots; by focusing on roots, students are able to learn many more words than they can by using other vocabulary books that contain a fixed number of words and definitions."

"I really love the layout of THE LEAST YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT VOCABULARY BUILDING: WORD ROOTS, and the word roots in alphabetical order will help our students expand their vocabulary skills."
