My English is terrible. Whenever I take a test involving reading and vocabulary, I freak out. I will do my best to get my reading speed up.
Meanwhile, where can I find a good, long list of GRE words that won't let me down? I would also appreciate any advice regarding what to read that would be best for preparation for the reading sections. It allows you to quiz yourself too. I found it really useful. I second the Kaplan recommendation - I learned like words the week of the test from it!
And it's wonderfully portable. You should try "Word power made easy" by Normal Lewis - its does wonders for almost every one. I think I should highlight the fact that I'm a junior, and I need to start studying vocab asap. It would be nice to get a word list specifically designed for the GRE. I checked out a barron's vocab list from a public library with words. I looks old I'll check the date later , but do GRE word lists change throughout the years, or can I stick with a word bank from years ago?
The Revised GRE tests for vocabulary in context: cramming Barron's word list with many words that are vaguely defined is not a good way to go. Kaplan's are a good place to start. But I'd recommend another method: reading. That is as you read underline and look up words you don't know. You can always turn them into electronic flashcards at quizlet. Of course reading will also help with your reading speed. Reading willy-nilly is not the most efficient use of your time. Hope that helps.
I am studying vocab from the Barron's Words book. I like it because for every word it also has an example sentence, which makes it kind of a combination between learning in context and learning plain word definitions.
My friends who took the GRE in the past and studied from the same book said there were quite a few words they remembered from that book.
I prefer learning words that I know appeared on the GRE before instead of blindly reading articles and skimming for GRE words as a Magoosh blog post suggests, but htere is no way I could remember more than words, if I am lucky!
THen, when I read articles or whatever and recognize a word from the book, I found I am more likely to remember the word both for its definition and as used in the new context. I hope that helps someone! I found the index cards were a great way to go. Both Barrons and Kaplan have nice sets you can buy on Amazon - even used and cheaply. I got the Kaplan list. Because I don't know most of them!
I took GRE some time back and vocabulary was the most difficult part for me. From the standard list of words, there were a lot I remembered but a few which I could never remember.
I searched for a website which could test me on the words I did not know more frequently than the words I knew. I couldn't find such a website. Then I decided to create one. Based on your right and wrong answers, it identifies your strong and weak words and will ask you YOUR weak words more frequently. The website is absolutely free to use and does not have advertisements to distract you. I am not making any money out of this.
My goal is to just make it easier for everyone else to learn these words. One thing I will definitely appreciate is feedback. If this method proves helpful, I will extend it to cover quant as well.

Test Your GRE Vocabulary Skills
Learning the GRE word list may seem like a difficult task but if you go about it methodically then it can be achieved. The thing you need to keep in mind is that you need to remember the words you learn or else the whole exercise becomes pointless. People may suggest you to use flashcards but learning through repetition is boring and it takes more time than you actually require. Follow the steps below and you will be able to master GRE word list. Set a time limit by which you intend to memorize those words. This will give you an idea of how many words you need to learn every day. I will also advise you to not set an unrealistic time limit; your brain can only take a certain amount of information in a day.
