You probably can’t learn all the hundreds of thousands of words in the English language—but you can learn
those difficult words you’re most likely to need to know. If you want to increase your vocabulary for standardized
tests or just better communication, Webster’s New World Essential Vocabulary
is the only tool you need. It
presents essential words with definitions, example sentences, synonyms, and tense forms.
In addition to the most frequently tested terms from the TOEFL, SAT and GRE tests, Webster’s New World
Essential Vocabulary also includes helpful appendices on foreign phrases, prefixes, and suffixes. Together, these
1,500 words and definitions not only prepare you for tough tests, but also dramatically improve your communication
skills for the business world or studying English as a second language. Whether you’re worried about college
entrance exams or just want to be better with words, this practical, helpful resource gives you the tools you
need to read, speak, and write more persuasively, and communicate more effectively. Plus, handy self–tests let
you gauge your understanding of words and meaning, so you can measure your progress as you go!
