About the Author

(HUZ bun dree)n.
management of resources, esp. in agriculture
Link: HUSBAND TREE
*picture inserted of a woman standing proudly holding a pitchfork next to a tree. Male farmers are shown hanging by their trousers on the branches*
"To help in her HUSBANDRY chores, Aunt Emma had her own HUSBAND TREE."
Bud's superb HUSBANDRY of his orange grove resulted in a larger than expected crop this year.
(HUSBANDRY is the practive of conserving resources; to HUSBAND is to economize) Experts say the world's oil resources will soon be exhausted, and we must soon begin to HUSBAND oil.
Everyone in our squad HUSBANDED their share of water for the long trek back to the barracks.
This mnemonic method helps you not only learn, but retain hundreds of words. So the next time you encounter the word husbandry, you will automatically think "husband tree" and then the picture of a bunch of men hanging from a tree will come into your mind, and then you will remember the funny sentence, and finally, the definition. btw, this will all happen in an instant. The three example sentences will help you learn the words in context, and there is a review after every 10 words to assess what you learned. This book will be extremely helpful for the SAT!
However, there are reasons why I didn't give this a 5 out of 5 rating. For one thing, there are only 290 words in this book. yes, there is another volume, but in total there's only 580 words, and you need to know more for the SAT. i recommend getting a vocabulary book like Princeton Review's Word Smart or Norman Lewis's Word Power Made Easy as a supplement. yes, they are not quite as fun as VC, but they do have a lot more words.
Two, sometimes the link word and picture have NOTHING to do with the definition of the word, to the point where the mnemonic can't help you memorize the word. For example, what does a man being stuck in an AIRTIGHT jar have to do with being ERUDITE?
Three, the words in this book are particularly easy. I knew a lot of the words in the book before reading it. for example, ajar, aftermath, abhor, allure, alternative, antecedent, appalling, artisan, aspire, astute, asunder, assuage, bizzare, bleak, certify, chide, comprise, cower, cranny, creditor, criterion, damper,deft, dillema, disperse, docile, dormant,embellish, emit, embody, endure, enrage, entice, emulate, evoke, feign, generalize, giddy, gloat, and more and I'm only halfway through! But then again, my vocabulary isn't that bad, so it depends, are you a vocabulary Einstein? If you are, say a junior/senior in high school and very diligent in memorizing list after list of words, then this book will not be a doozy. But if you are a lazy person lacking of vocabulary and don't feel like memorizing mundane lists but need a quick and easy method to memorize words, then this book is perfect! however, it doesn't hurt to reinforce what you know right?
The gripes I have do not take away from the quality of this excellent book and the effectiveness of the methods. I can't wait to read the second volume as well! Definitely buy this book NOW, you will not regret it!
The cartoon and mnemonic of "affinity" relies on Chinese stereotypes. This is bad in general, and worse when (like me) you have lots of Chinese students. "Alleviate" has a weird image of a "native" (clearly African) eating leaves as medicine. There are other "natives" used for "phobia." "Bizarre" uses a stereotype of turbaned Arab traders selling odd things. "Tourque" has a mockery of an image of a Turkish man. The only non-white characters in the book are all ludicrous stereotypes! A teacher who is worried about sexist imagery would have a field day this book as well.
