Appealing Content. Dull practice materials work against learning. The lively content and clear and friendly style of the books make learning easier for students.
Emphasis on Key Words. In creating the Vocabulary Series, our editors combined teaching experience with a number of word frequency lists to determine the best words for each book. The result is a core of essential words, sequenced in order of difficulty, that are most helpful for students to know.
Realistic Pricing. The books offer the highest possible quality at the lowest possible price: all of the 300-word books sell for no more than $ net. The modest price means that the books can serve as inexpensive supplements for any reading or writing course.
Outstanding Supplements. Free supplements to adopters include a vocabulary placement test, an Instructor's Edition, a combined Instructor's Manual and Test Ban that teach as well as test.
