For the GRE exam, probably the biggest challenge is to build your vocabulary. This is especially true for non-native English speakers like me. The real challenge is to remember them. Watch out!! Stay away from those!!
I bought this book because of its price. I've been holding it for a while. Since I worked through half of the book already, I wanna give some tips to the people who're using this GRE word book.
The explanations are NOT very accurate. It seems like they've tried to cut the explanations shorter, and this is what causes the problem. You can see the real meaning by reading the example, which has clearly stated "spicy". Two Sentence Summary: This is the single best test prep book I have used since high school. I strongly recommend it to anybody preparing for the GRE.
These works have also been helpful in my graduate school work and professional career. I still keep this book in my office and reference it regularly. However, the book is only effective if you have enough time to move through the lessons methodically. It was very helpful to make a concerted effort to think in and use the words. Otherwise, I found that I quickly forgot them. The author makes a good effort at grouping words that have related meanings or etymology in the same sentence.
For example, asperity and aspersion are in the same lesson. These words have similar meanings, but are different parts of speech. Grouping them helped reinforce the etymology and prevent confusing them. Due to the time it took to move through sections, if you have fewer than three months or so to prepare this book might not be the best use of your time. Otherwise I recommend it to GRE test takers or any graduate students.
I originally bought this book to get ready for another exam that has verbal ability section. I thought it was amazing that it divides the words in units of 10 words, and you then get to practice those words with exercises.. I also noticed that I've started using these words in my daily life, which proves that it is a good book for me at least, i'm horrible with memorizing, I typically understand and rarely memorize and learning new words has always been a challenge for me since english is my third language.
I would definitely recommend it for those non-english speaking people, and you can always get it and use it to set a baseline, then get more advanced GRE books to benefit as much as you can. It is difficult to improve your verbal score, so I knew that I needed an extra study aid to memorize the necessary vocabulary words.
I decided to download this book in particular because of the great reviews. Needless to say, the reviews were accurate and the book was amazing!! I would go through a chapter and make an index card for each word that I did not recognize.
I used colored index cards green for positive words, red for negative, etc. I found this extremely helpful; it was engaging and stimulating, which is important when you are studying mundane vocabulary terms. I completed the entire book and managed to memorize the unfamiliar words. I believe that my success on the verbal section of the GREs I managed to get a !
That along with the fact that it was super helpful makes it a great download! Don't bother trying to Root words are the key. Don't bother trying to memorize a gazillion words.

Just wanted to know is that the case? Am I not suppose to get a notification after you reply to my comment? Reply Neha January 3, at pm Hi, Chris! They are not a very effective way to learn vocabulary, especially since it misses the point of vocabulary on the GRE!
Many students memorize thousands of definitions but still have trouble with the simplest TC and SE questions because of this! Ultimately, having a high-level reading practice and learning words in their natural context is the best way to prepare for the GRE. You can see more on this strategy here: Reading Vocabulary in Context. However, if you want to sit for the exam, I would highly recommend utilizing a GRE test prep resource, whether Magoosh or another test prep.
To be comfortable with the exam and reach your target score, you want to have a lot of practice with both the Verbal and Quant sections of the exam, as well as time to focus on improving on your weaknesses. Feel free to check out the 1-Week free trial in Magoosh!
I recommend reading for at least half an hour a day, and if you have time, try to read for about an hour a day! Pause every so often, and recap the main message in your own words. About once a month, Chris selects an GRE-level article and provides both GRE vocabulary for you to focus on as you read, as well as a brief discussion of the piece.
Reply ozair November 16, at am HI chris, my question is that there are same words in vocabulary builder and magoosh flash cards? These same words appear in the Vocabulary Builder App. But there, the words from the flashcards are presented in a series of quiz questions.
For each word, you see a multiple-choice list of synonyms and brief definitions, and you select correct answers from those lists. Studying a word n a few different contexts and learning it in a few different styles can really accelerate your vocabulary learning and help you remember the words more fully and accurately.
Will Magoosh cover up that words? But even so, most word lists are similar because we see the same words over and over in the GRE. Take the time to read the text carefully, try to identify the key words and shift words yourself, and then compare that to the video explanation. If you struggle finding these words yourself, the best course of action is to study the explanations so that you can learn how to think about these passages.
I think I can master at most w before my exam. Which wordlist I should follow now? Word lists will only help you to a certain point. Palash September 21, at am Hello I am planning to give my gre in 20 days and aiming a score of around I need to score at least in verbal.
Magoosh Test Prep Expert September 24, at am Hi Palash, The best way to improve your verbal score is with frequent reading every day and expandind your vocabulary. Our flashcards contain 1, of the most useful GRE words. So, to begin, I encourage you to try to master these words. Knowing high-frequency GRE words can definitely help, which is why we made the flashcards, after all!
On the other hand, unfortunately, knowing vocabulary is just part of the battle. This will improve your knowledge of vocabulary in context, your ability to process complex sentences, and your reading comprehension skills in general. Second, you need to practice focused, active reading.
You need to read with purpose. I recommend reading articles on topics you would normally not choose to read.
