Some of them also, use words that show up in our product, words that are also high-frequency vocab words. This is perhaps the most important part of using a word list — doing it the right way.
Reading through a word list of unknown words is the single most ineffective way to study vocabulary. If you catch yourself studying this way, stop. Do something else, anything else short of committing a misdemeanor, for reading a word list truly is criminal. Well, our brains learn from being challenged.
What most are wont to do is to read each word, then the definition.
At that point, they think they have learned the word. After all, the definition is right there. Ask them to provide the word once you read the definition and you might as well be asking them what the capital of Equatorial Guinea is. It takes the flashcard concept which is based on randomized order and expands upon it by offering excellent quizzes.
Remember, the brain learns while being challenged! This post was originally published in March and has been updated for freshness, accuracy, and comprehensiveness. I think you can help me out. As a newbie, where should I start memorizing vocabulary? Please guide me how I can improve in vocabulary sphere. Thanks for reaching out to Magoosh! The GRE tests how vocabulary functions in context, not specific memorized definitions of words.
Here are a few more blog posts that you may find helpful: Our flashcards are a good place to start to familiarize yourself with common GRE vocabulary. If you steadily work through a words a day, you will quickly build your vocabulary! I browsed through the website, there are a number of word lists by the same name. Can you tell me which one are you referring to? Just keep in mind that these are all user-created, so you should find one that looks well made!
Thanks for your help! Just a general question. This is my first comment on any of your blogs.. I did not get any notification on my email after your reply. Just wanted to know is that the case? Am I not suppose to get a notification after you reply to my comment?
Yes, it should give you an email notification. Hi, Chris! We actually recommend that you forget about word lists altogether! 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 am a Magoosh GRE student. We recommend that you choose one source and use it! 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. 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?
We recommend that you stick to one source for GRE vocab. But even so, most word lists are similar because we see the same words over and over in the GRE. As for the keywords in text completions my best recommendation is to take the time to study the explanation video for all of the questions that you struggle with.
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. One more thing: I think I can master at most w before my exam. Which wordlist I should follow now? There are quite a few addtioanl GRE word lists out there that could be helpful.
Word lists will only help you to a certain point. I am planning to give my gre in 20 days and aiming a score of around I need to score at least in verbal. 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. Please see this article on how to read actively: I recommend reading articles on topics you would normally not choose to read.
You can find some good article suggestions here: You should also be using these reading materials to learn vocab in context.
This is the absolute best way to improve your vocabulary, since the GRE focuses on vocab in context for the verbal section: I hope this helps! Which revised word list should I choose? Good question! We constantly monitor progress our students make and get a ton of feedback because we are invested in making sure that our products are doing their job! You can honestly pick any word list to get you started. As soon as you feel comfortable, you should shift to reading high quality reading materials and learning words in context rather than relying just on rote memorization of list after list.
The context and tricky grammar matter as much as the words themselves! I hope this helps. You got through 1, Magoosh words. Very impressive! Really though, once you get to a very high level with your word lists, you should also start studying GRE vocabulary by reading vocabulary in context.
With your strong base of memorized words, you should be able to pick up a lot of additional words by reading GRE-like articles, essays, and books. Always wonderful to hear from such hard working students. You should also start to shift your focus from flaschards and word lists to reading vocabulary in context. Hi Chris, I am absolutely fan of your blog, and vocab wednesdays.
I have my GRE in a month. I have made up my mind not to use barrons or Kaplans wordlists in kaplans word groups, the bunch of words stacked under one header sometimes mean entirely different and I find it erroneous.
I was suggested that one should go for word groups only after one knows the meanings of the words, and per se should try to make it themselves.
Thank you for your kind words. Honestly, I would say that is a pretty good set of vocabulary materials. This is a great plan for the vocabulary wordlist portion of your GRE Verbal prep. Good GRE Verbal performance comes forma combination of reading comprehension skills, test strategy, and vocabulary knowledge.
With vocabulary, how you use the word lists is more important than which word lists you use, or how many words you study. I am planning to give my Gre in about 3 months. Working on vocab is a great start. You will want to start moving, now, toward high quality reading to get vocabulary in context and become familiar with the types of structures you may face on the GRE.
Is there a simple list somewhere of the 1, words that appear in the Magoosh Vocabulary flashcards? It would be really helpful in avoided the time to check through each word in the flashcards. Any info would be appreciated! Hi Tim, Great question! Check it out! Happy studying! I have finished with your Magoosh Ebook which is wonderful start for me. I have following quistion if you can help it out about wordlist. I have android which provide 2 magoosh gre app for vocabulary other than e book so which should I get first …..
I like quiz app but though confused about usefulness of each app. I want to know which other wordlist i should start? How is it? I am not very certain about its wordlist for gre use….. So please help me by reviewing this or i should use other list.
I am using Magoosh Vocab builder and flashcards. Do I need to use any other source as well for words?
I recommend the Vocab Wednesday videos. Sure, a lot of those words overlap, but many of the newer videos contain words not found in the flashcards. If you are still looking for words, you might want to check out the Manhattan GRE flashcards there will be significant overlap, though. Have been following the Magoosh site for quite sometime now and all your posts have been really helpful!
Between Word Smart and the Manhattan prep words which do you think is better considering I have two and a half months before my test date and need to score or above? I think Word Smart is great a reference tool: And now, with Vocabulary.

There are so many sets on there and I am not sure which is the right one to use. That is a good question. Since this leads to a bewildering array of choices, making your own set, using just the words you struggle with, is sometimes the way to go.
A snippet of good news is we just released the magoosh flashcards, based on the vocabulary in the ebook: I studied vocabulary using the eBook which was excellent, thank you for that!
What other sources should I use for vocabulary to cover all that is needed in this area? What is the best way to use Quizlet for long word lists? Oooh…that is sort of a problem. Hmmm…perhaps you could make a separate flashcard list out of those that you miss. Hi, Just stumbled across your site today. Your posts are super-helpful. One quick question.
