Vocabulary is becoming increasingly important for the 11 Plus, and it helps to devote sufficient time to it, as it takes a long time to build an effective vocabulary. This book contains over 500 Essentials words that appear frequently in the 11 Plus, and uses some of the following techniques to help you remember these words faster and better! - Word Roots; Since many English words are derived from Greek & Latin roots, it makes sense to be aware of these. Knowing a single root can help you know a whole group of words! - Prefixes/Suffixes; Pay attention to the tone of the words, whether soft or hard, harsh or mind, negative or positive. This could help you guess when in doubt. Prefixes/Suffixes can often help you with identifying the meaning of a word, when in doubt. - Usage of the Word; Perhaps the Best way to increase your vocabulary is to read, read and read. There is absolutely no substitute for that! Reading helps you learn new words from the context in which they are used, thereby making it easy to remember the new words and more importantly, how and when it is used. This book provides you with multiple examples of how a word is used in different contexts. - Synonyms/Antonyms Being familiar with related words, increases the number and variety of your mental associations. This helps you retain the meaning of the word more easily. - Related Words In order to 'deeply' understand the meaning of a word, it is helpful to study related words at the same time. e.g. The word plenty connotes "sufficient for what is needed" while abundance means "more than what is needed ." - Pronunciations Each word has a pronunciation key that helps you say the word out correctly, thereby aiding retention. - Practice makes perfect! Finally, this book has over a thousand exercises to make sure that you remember the meanings of the newly learnt words 'forever'! Many ingenious methods, scientifically correct, have been devised to aid in the remembering of particular facts. These methods are based wholly on the principle that that is most easily recalled which is associated in our minds with the most complex and elaborate groupings of related ideas. All of the above methods are designed to create a word network in your mind, thereby helping you develop a lasting understanding of the word in the 11 Plus relevant context.

11+ Vocabulary Cartoons To improve your memory you must increase the number and variety of your mental associations. When you learn new words, make sure you learn them in a context. It is far easier to remember a picture than an abstract concept. So the trick to remember an abstract word, is to turn it into a picture. And..... It is much easier to picture a sentence rather than picture a word in isolation. When you create the picture, make sure it meets one or more of the following criteria so that it 'sticks'. OUT OF PROPORTION - In all your images, try to distort size and shape. You can imagine things much larger than their normal size or conversely, microscopically small. SUBSTITUTION - You could visualise footballers kicking a television around a football pitch instead of a football, or pens growing on a tree instead of leaves. Substituting an out of place item in an image increases the probability of recall. EXAGGERATION - Try to picture a very large quantity in your images. MOVEMENT - Any movement or action is always easy to remember. HUMOUR - The funnier, more absurd and zany you can make your images, the more memorable they will be. Applying multiple combination of these five principles when forming your images will help make your mental associations truly outstanding and memorable. At first, you may find that you need to consciously apply one or more of the five principles in order to make your pictures sufficiently ludicrous. After a little practice however, you should find that applying the principles becomes an automatic and natural process. Some UNIQUE features of this book; -All the hard work done for you. Over 200 words converted into pictures utilizing the concepts above! -Focus on words likely to appear in the 11 plus Exam -Synonyms/Antonyms and sentences for EACH word - Over 1500 high frequency 11+ words in total!
