About this Item

Each year a thousands of students across the world appear for competitive entrance exams like GRE, CAT, GMAT, SAT, XAT, FMS, MAT etc. English Verbal Ability (VA) generally constitutes an important part of these tests. A strong vocabulary and the ability to appreciate the contextual usage of words provide a great mileage in cracking the VA section. A lot of students, especially those with English not as their first language, do not have an advanced level of word power. Therefore, they find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to cracking the VA section. These students generally adopt the following conventional methods to build their vocabulary: Cramming wordlists, fl ash cards etc: It is a stressful `memory based? method to build one?s vocabulary. Here emphasis is more on `remembering the meanings? of the words rather than on `appreciating the context? in which they are used. Reading good novels, storybooks, newspaper editorials etc: It is an effective method of building vocabulary, as words are encountered in proper context and in a flowing storyline. But it is also a rather `slow? method of building vocabulary. Sometimes it takes away the `true? pleasure of reading because the reader has to fumble with a dictionary while he/she is reading the book! Therefore we have co-authored this book to provide the students with an effective tool to build their vocabulary in a short period of time. In this book, we have combined the best features of both the above mentioned methods while taking away their drawbacks. TABLE OF CONTENTS: Preface How to use this Book 1. The Christmas Present 2.

Synopsis:

Each year a thousands of students across the world appear for competitive entrance exams like gre, cat, gmat, sat, xat, fms, mat etc. English verbal ability (va) generally constitutes an important part of these tests. A strong vocabulary and the ability to appreciate the contextual usage of words provide a great mileage in cracking the va section. A lot of students, especially those with english not as their first language, do not have an advanced level of word power. Therefore, they find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to cracking the va section. These students generally adopt the following conventional methods to build their vocabulary: cramming wordlists, fl ash cards etc: it is a stressful 'memory based' method to build one's vocabulary. Here emphasis is more on 'remembering the meanings' of the words rather than on 'appreciating the context' in which they are used. Reading good novels, storybooks, newspaper editorials etc: it is an effective method of building vocabulary, as words are encountered in proper context and in a flowing storyline. But it is also a rather 'slow' method of building vocabulary. Sometimes it takes away the 'true' pleasure of reading because the reader has to fumble with a dictionary while he/she is reading the book! therefore we have co-authored this book to provide the students with an effective tool to build their vocabulary in a short period of time.
