Word Within the Word
What is it?
How it Works
How will you benefit?
The ability to figure out a word from the context in which it is used is important; however, you can enhance your word attack skills by taking words apart to figure out the whole meaning.

This study will directly impact your PSAT and SAT scores.
It is a program that uses etymology, not memorization. Latin and Greek stems are presented as a system of thinking, a way of building, analyzing, spelling, pronouncing, using and choosing words. In consequence you will know far more than the list of words encountered in this course—the tens of thousands of words which are not listed, but which are expressions of the system.
The Word program is intended as a weekly effort;
built on a cumulative basis from Volume I. Every test reinforces every list. Through constant review, ever increasing familiarity is built. .
