It's quite large in both volume and in size. I can fit the whole case from the top of my fingers down to the bottom of my hand, and I do indeed have large hands. It's very compact for the amount of material it contains though.
You can fit this case in your backpack, so in between classes and free time you can study to your heart's content. It's chock full of material, showing the parts of speech, definition, and synonym of the word. The flash cards are average size with smooth borders and quality paper. Not some flimsy printer paper or anything of the sort.
It's composed of either words you may have learned in class, or new words that can expand your vocabulary. It's not filled with words that you may use in general conversations, but that is different for everyone.
I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to increase their Writing/Critical Reading scores on the SAT!
I can't give 5 stars, because sometimes the definitions on the cards are too advanced and use words of equal or greater difficulty, e.g. using "transitory" to define "transient". When teaching someone with a rudimentary vocabulary, I'd prefer to have definitions that use simple words.
The cards are somewhat flimsy and could bend or tear easily. Use with care, and store them in the box. The box does come with a nice divider to place between the words you've learned and the rest of the set. It also has quite a few blank cards for adding your own vocab words.
Each card does include a sentence for the word that helps put its use in context as well as a couple of synonyms. Overall, these were a good buy. I would recommend them for middle school students and their parents and teachers. I am looking for something more advanced to recommend to my high school students.
It's true that students could make their own flashcards, but very few students are diligent enough to do that. This box gives them a huge number of useful words to learn, and having a sturdy box and dividers is invaluable to keep things organized. It's priced very reasonably for the quality you get.
What keeps it from getting 5 stars? No pronunciation key for the words, and the definitions could be simpler.
