There are many editions of The Odyssey. This educational edition was created for self improvement or in preparation for advanced examinations. The bottom of each page is annotated with a mini thesaurus of uncommon words highlighted in the text, including synonyms and antonyms. Designed for school districts, educators, and students seeking to maximize performance on standardized tests, Webster s paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings. A running thesaurus at the bottom of each page is useful to students who are actively building their vocabularies in anticipation of taking PSAT , SAT , AP (Advanced Placement ), GRE , LSAT , GMAT or similar examinations. This edition exposes the reader to a maximum number of difficult, and often encountered words in examinations. Rather than supply a single synonym, many are provided for a variety of meanings, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of the English language, and avoid using the notes as a pure crutch. Having the reader decipher a word s meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages.
