Your English Vocabulary is very Important
An expansive English vocabulary has always been an indicator of upward social mobility. However, in recent times, it has become even more important: vocabulary tests are an integral part of selection processes to the best schools in the world. 40% of career selection examinations have some component of verbal skills testing.

In the modern world, one's vocabulary is an important tool for success. This book helps you take your English skills to the next level: more words, better grammar, and more correct spellings.

Here are a few key features of the approach used:

1. Gamification: In each part of each exercise, you are given a set of clues about a word, one of which is always linked to its definition. This gamification approach is key to making you come back, Exercise Set after Exercise Set, to master hundreds of useful new words by the end of the entire book.
2. Pattern recognition: The clues are carefully chosen so that they link to key properties of a word that help you remember it quickly in a test scenario. For example, the first letter of a word, its length, and its approximate meaning are all patterns that help us create mental shortcuts to quick + intuitive guesses. These are exactly what the word clues are based on, and they will benefit you in skill building, through an indirect approach - just like working out a group of muscles in the gym gives you muscle gains weeks later
3. Graded difficulty increase: The pool of words used for this book is carefully curated - you will start off with challenging but commonly used words for the most part, and graduate to more obscure words in a slowly staged manner. All the while, we will sprinkle in a few words related to those you have mastered in earlier Exercise Sets, so that you are able to build on what you have learnt earlier. By the end of the book, you will be ready for anything that a real standardized test can throw at you - both in terms of skills and confidence.
4. Unique proprietary format: The format of questions used in this book cannot be found anywhere else - it has been tried and tested with thousands of students, and works every single time.

Whether you are looking to strengthen your verbal skills in English for a test, or for career purposes, or just looking to do this out of interest, this book is for you.
