The Wizard of Oz Vocabulary Builder
If your vocabulary needs building but you don't like to read, this book is for you. That's because people remember the meanings of unfamiliar words only if they learn them in context-by reading. And the fastest and most painless way of putting that idea into practice is by reading just one book that happens to include all the vocabulary words you need to know-for standardized tests such as the SAT or GRE, or for everyday intelligent-sounding conversation. Just as people might use "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" to easily and conveniently test out the keys of a typewriter or computer (because it contains all 26 letters of the alphabet in a single, short sentence), you can use The Wizard of Oz Vocabulary Builder (a specially rewritten version of L. Frank Baum's classic, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) to easily and conveniently build your vocabulary (because it contains all the words you need to know, 1850 of them, in context, in a single book). Clear definitions and interesting illustrative sentences appear at the bottom of each page.
