GRE Vocab Capacity: Powerful Memory Tricks and Mnemonics Review

  • Pages : 292 pages

You should know that in Revised GRE you don’t have to memorize words. But, you are still required to have good vocabulary.

Questions in Revised GRE Verbal section are based on the context. If you can’t understand the context of a passage or a sentence with words you don’t know the meaning, you are pretty much screwed right?

Which means, you must know meanings, synonyms for few hundred high frequency words.

So,  one of the ways to remember new words and improve your vocabulary is by using mnemonics.

While preparing for GRE you can spend your time writing your own mnemonics or use GRE Vocab Capacity: Powerful Memory Tricks and Mnemonics  and build from that.

If I were you, I would use an existing list to save time, then customize the list based on your need.

GRE Vocab Capacity includes over 900 mnemonics ( at this time).

Here is an Example

  • Abridge (verb): to shorten. 1
  • Think: A BRIDGE.
  • A BRIDGE would ABRIDGE my commute, which involves driving around the canyon.

Even with mnemonics, you still have to remember the sentences and associations right?

There is a section in the book about various ways to remember the mnemonics.

  • HSB Recommendation Meter – Must Buy

Authors have made it easier for the GRE test takers to remember 900 words.

    You can download the Kindle e-book reader and install it in your computer. You don’t need the device.

    I downloaded it via http://www.amazon.com. You can just google it, otherwise.

      Its has 900 words and its much better to know 900 new words, even if its not named as high frequency than going to take GRE with regular vocabulary skills.
