Finishing a book like this won't necessarily mean you know all the words. But I gotta say it's one great source for people who don't know where to start. This book was extremely helpful to me. Even though a lot of the words in this book didn't show up on the test. Because there was about 8 questions that dealt with picking the right word, so the probably was very low anyways, I think it helped a lot.

I did see some words from here on the test though! I liked the way they set up the techniques for learning the words.

They have you learn the words in about four different ways which really helps. You read the definition in sets of ten. Then match the This book was extremely helpful to me. Then match the definitions. Then use them in a sentence and finally you have to tell if the word makes sense in the provided sentence. I think this was a very useful way to helping remember the words. I have the say I didn't use the Roots part of the book. I didn't have enough time to get that far. So I can't say if that was helpful or not.

Overall, I'm VERY glad I bought this book because it even helped me learn a lot of words I hear everyday but didn't know their exact meanings. So helpful. A great resource. You get out what you put in and this more than prepares you. However, while studying for the GRE, this wasn't as compact as it should have been for a supplemental resource. Too many words and some of the highest frequency words didn't even have definitions in the book! A fine tool though. Reading new words along with the adjunct practices really helps to assure one has really learned those vocabularies.

I myself found this book necessary for whom want to take GRE exam. There are also matching and fill in the blank questions after each set of ten words to help you put them into context and not just have rote memorization of the words and what they mean.

Aug 11, Kate rated it really liked it. Much more effective than simply staring down a long list of words and definitions. Jan 05, Steppenwolfe rated it really liked it. Very geeky, but I'm getting a tremendous kick out of this book! Good review with pre- and post- tests and review for every set of words. Also includes a root word section.

Philip Geer. Books by Philip Geer. This is awesome. I hope this will help me to improve my verbal score! Greetings from Brazil! Good luck! I hope the ebook will be helpful though it might be hard to focus in the next month with all the World Cup action: Thank you for your works in this website.

I will try to use this book, and I hope my score be better next time. Demur should not be confused with demure, which as an adjective that means coy. They both come from around the time of the Norman Conquest though the Anglophiles may have demurred to use either.

There has to be some mention of money e. The sentence that puts the word in context subtly suggests this, but it is not explicitly stated in the definition. Thanks for catching that: Fleece definitely is always related to money and deception, of course!

We will make the change in the book: Could you please e-mail a copy of the ebook to me also. I too cannot download it from the given link. I have yet to take the GRE, but so far, during my preparations, I am absolutely thrilled with the Magoosh Vocabulary book! I can honestly say that this is so well-developed and organized.

The example sentences and general layout of the book has aided in permanently remembering a majority of the words that I have been learning and re-learning! I am thrilled! I look forward to continuing to take practice exams with Magoosh and the GRE! Amazing material you guys have made.

It helped me immensely preparing from the text. I scored a V with 20 days of preparation. I had no clue how to start of with my preparation when I happened to come across magoosh. Went through the blog to select which books to read and which tests to give. And the mobile app was excellent!

Essential Words for the GRE

You guys are doing a great job! It is of great help. I just started with words flashcards. They are of great help, but I miss his humorous explanation. The words in the flashcards are available on website as sets with explanation. So is there an ebook updated with his explanation and words? Will that be enough vocabulary for the test?

Should I just stick with what I have or is it actually worth it for me to sift through all the vocabulary Wednesday words that you have previously posted? Are you sure those will be sufficient though? Yes, definitely! That plus Manhattan is plenty: You guys rock!!

For those who are looking for offline version of vocab flash cards, I recommend manhattan GRE vocab flash cards. We also have printable flashcards: Hey Magoosh! Thanks for the awesome e-book. I went through the book thoroughly and it helped me learn the actual context where the words can be used.

I just started my prep with this ebook and I have a little query;at the end, you mentioned some books, newspapers for reading. So would you suggest me a book that fits my needs? I checked the website. And I have a small suggestion for you.

The blog is little less organized. Thanks for the awesomeness. In my opinion, the slander is puerile, and just adds to unwarranted hatred which we have enough of.

I was wondering if I should stop using that book and focus on the words in this eBook or whether the majority of the words in the Barron book are contained within this eBook… what do you think? Many of those words show up in the eBook. If you already learned the words, seeing them again will only reinforce them. I noticed you guys suggest quizlet. Why not generate the most common GRE words that you have so kindly created and put it on quizlet?

It will be out in this month: At about 6 a week, in another two years I shall have almost all the words that could show up on the GRE in blog form ready for an uber-vocab e-book: Start The secondary meaning for start is somewhat similar to the common meaning. To start is to suddenly move or dart in a particular direction. Hey, The book is great and very helpful! I have my GRE next month. My math score is excellent but my vocab scores during practice tests are bad! I always go wrong with the triple blank or two blank questions when i get one option right and the other wrong.

Would you recommend any technique to understand words better? Those three-blank questions definitely are tough. While vocabulary is part of the problem, convoluted sentence structure is usually a big part of the problem.

Let me know if that helps. And if you are already doing something similar, let me know, and I can help you find other ways to improve your verbal performance. I have 2. People told me that with this score I wont be able to get into top colleges. So, i am planning to take GRE again. Is it a good idea? Or is this score good enough? If not, how can i improve my Verbal?

Last time i felt i screwed up verbal due to lack of practice. Some extra information for you to consider: For Verbal I would definitely recommend going through the eBook above, and especially following the advice at the end of it about doing plenty of outside reading, as well as working on more practice questions, as you mentioned!

Could you please tell us if you are admitted at the top 20 colleges with this score? Did the preparation help you to improve your GRE score? Wow, this e-book was SO helpful! The way you guys designed this… it just sticks! Thank you guys.. Thanks, Michelle! We worked hard to make it as effective as possible, we know vocab can be tough!

Hey, thanks so much for this ebook! Quick question, how reliable is it to study from this ebook in terms of vocabulary? That is, how exactly were the words chosen for this prep? Thanks in advance! The ebook words were mostly chosen for their likelihood to show up on the GRE.

Often, I will point out that such words are obscure. As for the common words in the ebook, well over a dozen showed up on the latest practice test and these questions were from the last year during which time most of the words on the site were live! Here is a link to a post I wrote about it:.

Now I want to do some practice of text completion and sentence equivalence. Which book do you think would provide the best practice. It relies too much on obscure vocabulary and, as a result, it does not mimic the test very well. I completed magoosh verbal book, and Kaplan GRE word list words but still the marks that I get in the exam is pretty low and most words are still new to me.

Please help me. I am really worried as my GRE is on 27th August. The GRE is definitely a test of will, esp. Do not think of your lower score as failure; it is an opportunity to learn more words. Be zealous and hunt down as much GRE vocab as possible.

And when you miss a practice question because of vocab, learn those words. Needed some advice. I am a Magoosh product user and I seem to be positively struggling with the gre vocab words used in the sentences. This, despite the fact that I am quite a voracious reader. At the same time I realize that English as a vast language always throws up words that will be new. How would you suggest to best counter these?

With so little time left, you can only so many words.

Perhaps a better piece of advice is to remember that you can still answer a question correctly without knowing every word in a question.

So keep a cool head and work on understanding the sentence. Wow thank you so much! Appreciate the heart to share such stuff online that too for free. This is such a great way to put up the tricky words!!! Thanks a lot…immensely appreciated! Hi my name is ahmed. I have taken the Revised GRE two times but unfortunately my verbal score is very poor. I got these scores. Could you please suggest me the best book for verbal. For Verbal a great place to start is our general Ebook — therein you will find book reviews and ways to approach the verbal section.

The link below is for the Ebook:. Love the guide! But I have one question so far. This example in the book kind of confuses me logically…. You are right: Suggested edit: Thanks for sharing this for free. Best vocabulary book I have so far.

With the examples to help me memorize words, I feel some of the confusing words got rooted on my head now. My take on it is this: But trying to memorize somebody else twisted mnemonic, unless it is spectacularly clever and elegant, is not the way to go. The mnemonics that work best are often the ones we come up with. But as I said—come up with your own and then see what others have come up.

Such a process may help you refine your mnemonic thus making it even more memorable. It gives a breakdown of strategies. Have you checked that out yet?

If so, maybe you can let us know what we should add: Very disappointed!!! We messed up. We definitely should not have included that as an example. Thanks for pointing it out! Thank you for taking care of this issue. The vocab ebook is really good. Exactly what i needed. Is the math one out yet? If yes could you please post tell me the link? Yes, here it is: When will be the math formula e-book published. Please kindly release it soon. Here it is, sorry for the wait!: Thanks a lot. I have just started the book.

It is simply awesome. Great work. Looking forward for more help from you experts and join your course. Super useful! Hi all, just thought I would share an idea that I had about learning vocab. I have been reading scientific american and i decided to leave a post about one of the articles! What a great way to find something I had an opinion on and take a few extra minutes to incorporate GRE words.

The article was about a scientist discovering that the epidemic of obesity in weight-loss has to do with simply too much food consumption Here is what I posted:. This is not an esoteric concept. What I see having worked in the health field, at a weight-loss facility is what Chow has discovered. It is very simply calories in vs.

Many people are addicted to bad carbs and sugar. This addiction is very similar to other addictions alcohol, drugs etc. The body is an amazing machine and anyone can overcome this issue. It seems they are missing alacrity to correct their weight problem. My opinion, what do I do?

Eat healthy, educate yourself on food products, avoid heavy carbs before bed, indulge, but not every day. Little changes that are sustainable are going to make a difference in your weight. Food is fuel, the right kind can energize the wrong kind enervates. I am not trying to draft a polemic here, just my candid thoughts. And a perfect use of GRE words as well: I like how you took the gumption and posted on the site itself. And what you say is no polemic — losing weight is not about some miracle diet.

Thanks for this! Let me accept that am very addicted to your site and regularly checking for new posts from proffessional like you. This is a good work and will fetch me alot.

Thank you so much and for your precious suggeestions. Page I think these are both in the general eBook, not the vocabulary one, right? Thanks for pointing those out!

Thanks again! Let us know if you have any requests for other eBook topics! Its amazing job from Magoosh team and compilation of Math formula sheet is really valuable for GRE aspirants.

This book is too good to be free.. I feel that these kinds of e-books and other added goodies must be available only to magoosh customers.

I know, I sound a little mean, but, seriously, this book is too good to be free. Thanks Magoosh. This is one of the best sites i have ever come across. What about making a new e-book on just quantitative portion with very difficult problems. Please compile this book with all of the important math formulas so that it will be highly useful for students and they can have a closer look at this book before the exam day.

Good call!! Thank you Magoosh. Although there are many resources out there for GRE but you got me overwhelmed with powerful tools. This book is an amazing work. Is it a good idea to prepare for the GRE test reading section by reading academic papers in computer science? They are not as necessary as they were on the old GRE. On the old GRE, someone with strong knowledge of obscure words could do very well.

This is no longer the case, as the new GRE focuses less on obscure vocabulary and more on understanding how to use….
