Summary and Info
Defining New Moon is a workbook that helps you learn vocabulary for SAT, ACT, GED and SSAT, by using the book New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. The work book is not only for those tests listed above, but you can also use them to brush up and learn new words. How it works is in the workbook, they give you groups of words and page numbers on where you'll find the word in the actual book. You can then write what you think the word means and then check your answer on the next page which has the definitions. The workbook also has synonyms, analogies and sentence completions.
If you're anything like me, then it sometimes takes a little bit for you to feel like studying. You think about other things, get online, or read a book (not the one you're suppose to be studying..) instead of just jumping in. I think we're all a little guilty of this from time to time. So, when I saw Defining New Moon, I was eager to get it and see if it really worked or not. I was very surprised by how much I liked the book and how much I learned. I would look up the word in New Moon and try to guess what it meant. Sometimes I was right, sometimes I wasn't. But now I know more words than I did when I began this little experiment.
I highly recommend Defining New Moon, along with it's predecessor Defining Twilight. Coming soon there is also going to be a Defining Eclipse, which I'll definitely have to get my hands on! I think these are very helpful workbooks and Twilight fans are going to love them! I think what Mr. Leaf is doing here is great and and it's a genius idea! I think anything to help is worth giving a shot and this is a series to try out! You can check out Brian Leaf, M.A on his website or you can become a fan facebook where there's usually giveaways and news about the series.
