x Introduction If you read this book we do not guarantee that you will become the president of your company. Nor can we promise that as your word skills increase you will marry a worshipful millionaire. What we do guarantee is that you and your vocabulary will be on excellent speaking terms. You will learn many new words and you will remember them longer. Vocabulary study is special because you learn to learn. By learning common word beginnings (prefixes), endings (suffixes), and roots (ori- gins) you can learn not one, but a thousand words at a time. In no other subject can you achieve results so quickly. Vocabulary Improvement is not meant to be read from cover to cover in one sitting. Check the table of contents and decide what chapter you want to work on today. Start there. Over several weeks you will cover most of the information. As a result of staying with it, you will benefit in the following ways: · You will be better prepared for your high school equivalency exam, job placement test, or college entrance exam. · You will improve your reading, writing, speaking, and listening vocabulary.
