Study Guide Review

Update: There is a newer edition of this book.

An essential tool for increasing your vocabulary, this book provides an extensive 800 word list of the most frequently occurring words on the GRE.

In addition, it gives instructions on learning common roots and prefixes as a means of deciphering new, unknown words; a pretest which highlights areas of weakness; concise definitions for words on the word list, and practice exercises to confirm test takers’ understanding of new words.

Helpfully organized into 10-word bite sized units, this book makes a seemingly insurmountable task like learning 800 new words into a manageable activity.

Highly recommended as one of the best GRE books for the test’s Verbal Reasoning section.
