Students read, and if they don't comprehend a word in bold type, they look it up to find out what it means in context. The authors suggest students look up even the words they think they know to make sure they are right. Many of the words appear several times in the same book, so there is plenty of opportunity to review built in. There are some exercises at the end of the books to to enable students to see how much they've learned. And there are some hints on making the best use of the book and on studying for the SAT at the beginning of the book. This method will probably work best with a self-motivated student.
