Tome GRE Vocabulary Flashcard

/təʊm/ (noun)

Definition

a large and heavy book on a technical and serious subject, digest, opus, fat book, work, book, volume, codex

Example

Effective textbook reading is a key study skill for student success. Nearly every class makes you read them.

“Makes” is the right word here. “Requires,” “forces,” or “insists” will also work. Few people read textbooks and sometimes tomes unless they have to. If you read textbooks for fun, shoot me an email. I need to interview you, because I don’t think you exist.

Reading textbooks is weird. That’s right – weird. Granted, we all have to read them. But even you bookworms – the kinds of people who devour the Twilight books in one week, or Harry Potter, or the Hunger Games books – know that textbooks are a bit weird.

Think about it. Textbooks are the only books you read today that have pictures on nearly every page (Dr. Seuss fans excluded). In fact, should you be forced to read a textbook without pictures, you are in real trouble. Those books get seriously tough. Nevertheless, understanding how to read a textbook is vital.
