MGRE Flashcards


Manhattan GRE has a useful set of flashcards. Clear definitions, well-written example sentences and interesting tidbits (such as a “backstory” on certain words) make these a necessity. Words are broken up into two levels, so you can make sure that you are studying the words that are right for you.

Magoosh Flashcards


Magoosh GRE flashcards cover high-frequency GRE words and have clear definitions . The flashcards are free. You can print them out, or you can download the flashcard app, which makes learning words easy (there is some newfangled algorithm it uses that makes words more likely to stick).

Barron’s 1100 Words


For those who like the old book approach, this Barron’s vocabulary workbook is great. Learn the definition of words by inferring how they are used in context (an indispensible skill on the GRE); take weekly practice quizzes; peruse the glossary to see how each of the words is used in context (example sentences are taken from a variety of reputable resources).

Blank flashcards (quizlet.com)


Not all the words you’ll encounter as you do GRE vocab exercises and read (see below) are in the resources above—so make sure that you have blank flashcards. Quizlet.com makes it easy for you to make flashcards online for any words you stumble across during your prep.

Vocabulary.com


Speaking of new words, instead of using a straightforward dictionary, with its dry, and often abstract definitions, try vocabulary.com. Each word gets a little story along with an example, so words are more likely to stick (it’s sort of like my Vocab Wed., posts but in condensed form).


Read, read, read


There is no better way to reinforce vocabulary than be encountering it unexpectedly. Since, you aren’t going to bump into the word “prosaic” as you walk down the street, a great place to see GRE words are from reading. Nytimes.com, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic are great places (all offer many articles for free online).
Don’t just read the breaking news or the sports score; choose long form stories (usually 3 pages or longer). And remember to have a set of blank flashcards, Quizlet or paper-based, for those unknown words you encounter.

I've gone through GRE preparation before and I found help from computer was helpful when memorizing words. And so I decided to make one available for everyone.

It's called 'fatlingo'

Hope this helps.


Thanks.

I found Vocabsmith veryusefull to memorise words.I used 2-3 months before the exam.VocabSmith is a mobile app to improve vocabulary.VocabSmith’sRST algorithm governs your exposure to the words, in a frequency determined to be the most optimized, as suggested by proven psychological research. The algorithm further aligns this revision on the user’s difficulty in learning the words – you find a word difficult, no problem, VocabSmith revises it more for you. This way,VocabSmith ensures that your time spent on the tool maximizes your retention of the words, and associate with word usages.

A great resource that I recently came across was the vocabmagik vocabulary builder app. Its has a great GRE vocabulary course with over 1200 high frequency GRE words. Its and extremely effective course that helps learn words using cartoon and associations.

In no time at all I was able to learn 1200 words :)
