Breakthrough Books – Annotated Novels

Breakthrough Books are a collection of classic novels that are annotated with chapter descriptions and word definitions to the challenging but useful words therein. Thus each book is an all-in one combination of Novel, Cliff’s Notes, and Thesaurus.

The series is one of the most effective ways to increase students’ vocabulary AND absorb great literature for school or for pleasure. Each novel is annotated with succinct definitions to every challenging word that appears on the SAT. The definitions are right there – on the same page as the highlighted word – no flipping back and forth to indexes.

The series improves every two years: with a new annotated novel and with additions to existing novels’ vocabulary databank. The SAT invokes new words on three or four tests each year. The Breakthrough series adds these new words to its vocabulary data bank. Serious students can download the new words throughout their academic careers.

Every registered purchaser has access to the Ivy Bound vocabulary data bank. Any student’s purchase of this book allows her/him access this database through grade 12.

The rewards for academic excellence are higher than ever, these help high school and university students to be among the top performers.
