Editorial Reviews

Great book. Well worth the purchase price. Gives you strategies, problem solving steps, word roots, stems, etc. and a lot of things I haven't seen in other books. Very good explanations of answers. You get a lot for your money with this purchase. We have three different books and this is by far the best.
