Hi,

My trainers have been telling me that if i need good marks i need to memorize over 2000 words. Is this really necessary to memorize that many? I find it awkward because i was told the American education advocates against any sort of memorization, however even at the entry level they require that which is really contradicting. Please clarify this.

Don't think it as memorizing, think it as learning since the words make the sentence simpler.

Making a habbit of inculcating those words in your language which has 2 major benefits
1. You will never forget the words which you use in your daily language.
2. Widening of your knowledge.

2000 is not enough I think. But this can be your starting point. Everyday learn new things and increase your wisdom.

It may be compulsory to learn more than 2000 words for GRE preparation. But I have a idea to easily memorize the words. I heard about the app named Memorytrix. It was suggested by my friends. Give it a try,if you are interested.

For those who say it is compulsory to memorize at least 2000 words, what list of words do you guys use? For example, which prep book's words do you find most reflective of the GRE questions.

A good grasp of GRE voc is crucial for the test.

However, memorization is not the key to beat the test. The key is a good standard English and to understand the meaning of the sentences in front of you of the RC passage.
