The Civil Service Exam Vocabulary Review Series

The Civil Service Vocabulary series is a series of vocabulary review for the Civil Service Examination. In this series, I have collected words that usually come out in examinations, wrote their meanings and created sample sentences about them in order for you to remember them easily. Most of the definitions were taken from online dictionaries, although I have simplified many of them for easier reading.

Remember: Being good in vocabulary does not just come overnight (read 5 Ways to Improve Your Vocabulary). It is an accumulation of the words what you have read over time.  » Read more
