Publisher Comments:

Even with modern computer spell checking, it's important for everybody to know how to spell words correctly. This book is designed to help students, businesspeople, and everybody else master the art of spelling. It examines reasons why we misspell, offers tips for improvement, presents basic spelling rules, suggests memory devices, and advises on acquiring the habit of using a good dictionary. Also included are lists of homonyms and homophones and frequently misspelled words. Hundreds of quick-check exercises are designed to improve every reader's spelling. Barron's E-Z Series books are updated, and re-formatted editions of Barron's older and perennially popular Easy Way books. Titles in the new E-Z Series feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever. All are self-teaching manuals that cover a wide variety of practical and academic subjects, written on levels that range from senior high school to college-101 standards.
