How To Improve Vocabulary For VARC?
What are the best ways to improve my vocabulary? How effective is Norman Lewis book for increasing vocabulary?
You can definitely start with “Word Power made Easy”,it is an amazing book to start and build up confidence. I have definitely seen a difference in my vocab after i have completed the book.Moreover it is quite interesting once you get the hang of it.It is not the traditional vocab book,It builds your understanding and syncs the word right into your brain.Go for it.
One of the best ways to improve your vocabulary is to READ. I understand with CAT Preparation, reading often takes a back seat but reading a book per week is something which will not only help you to improve your vocabulary but will also help with your reading speed and comprehension.
If you absolutely don’t have time to read a few books, Word Power Made Easy is your next best bet. Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis has over thousands of words and a couple of exercises after each chapter to ensure you retain the words you have learnt efficiently. The methodology to explain the words is simplistic and uses root words to help remember similar words together by association. This will help you ‘guess’ a few words if you know the root words well.
Please do note that there is no guarantee that the words you study will be a part of your entrance exams definitely. Which is why reading helps with improving your vocabulary in a larger sense than just referring to a word book.
Also, when you do come across new words, be sure to add them at one place. Keep your own word book that will help you go through the words when you are travelling, etc.
Hope this helps!
