In the first nine lessons of this book, you’ll review (or learn for the first time) how to use some language basics, such as knowledge of word roots, common prefixes and suffixes (word beginnings and endings), and additional tricks and techniques, to help you learn new words and remember them. 1 tools for building word power S E C T I O N

Here are some important reasons to increase your word power. 1. You’ll do better on tests —and not just vocabulary tests.

You’ll have an impressive inventory of words to choose from when answering questions.
