Do you have a DOGMATIC boss, a CAPRICIOUS friend, or a GAUCHE roommate? By the time you finish studying THE WORLD OF WORDS: VOCABULARY FOR COLLEGE SUCCESS, Eighth Edition, you will have expanded your vocabulary enough to know the answer to all of these questions and more. Dr. Margaret Richek wrote this time-tested, top-selling vocabulary textbook to teach you the vocabulary you need for academic success. But because you will continue to encounter new words at work, during your career, and for years to come, Dr. Richek also provides you with the skills you need to learn new words easily on your own. Now that's an achievement worthy of ADULATION (see Chapter 4 for the definition of that one!).
