This curricula is easy to use, designed for students to work independently with little teacher intervention, and it gives students a chance to not only learn vocabulary which they may need to know for college entrance tests, but also it's fun to see where all the words we say emanated (e.g. Latin, Greek, etc.). For students or "wordsmiths" this curricula requires about 15 minutes a day and is a painless way to teach vocabulary roots necessary to decipher unknown words in the future as well as improve your vocabulary.

This review is for the whole series. I'm using these books with students who need vocabulary work. It is helping them across the board. For example, one student, who is working on book A, just finished the first two sections of the book, which contain words about numbers of things (mono/uni = 1, bi/di = 2, tri=3 and so on). Yesterday, she and I looked at her math class work. They're learning about polynomials. Her vocabulary list contains words such as monomial, binomial, trinomial... and she exclaimed, with joy, "I know these! We just learned these! The rest of the class took the whole period with this and still didn't get it and I did." She's lagged in vocabulary for so long, it's a delight to see her surging ahead. I would use the numbered books with students in middle school and needier high school students, and the A and above with average students in high school. More advanced high school students would zoom through the first few and then find material that will help them. Great for general vocab and SAT prep.

My daughter 14, loves to learn new words and this book really covered what I had been looking for, the origin and roots along with synonyms. We don"t need spend a lot of time on vocabulary because the book covers the word descriptions in such a manner that its easier for her to remember.

I really like these vocabulary from classical roots books. They teach more difficult words and give good definitions and where the roots in the words come from. Good for middle-schoolers, even 6th grade good readers.

My oldest daughter loves them and my boys even think they're "not too bad." The kids work on them about 15 minutes a day. They've helped their spelling and knowledge of root words, and root origins.

I LOVE this series! These books have help build an incredible foundation for my son. He started with the first book and is now in the high school level. These books are a wonderful addition to a classical language education.
