PREFACE

In the new format adopted by the GRE, verbal reasoning skills are given greater importance than ever. Students will face new types of questions in reading comprehension, sentence equivalence and text completion, and the average difficulty-level has gone up. The greater focus now is to test how well the student understands the context and is able to infer the right conclusions. This means merely learning vocabulary words by rote is not a good idea. Students looking to crack the verbal reasoning section need to develop a broader understanding of the vocabulary and relevant context.


This book was developed precisely with that purpose in mind. It presents 491 words for the New GRE that are most likely to appear in the test in different ways. The emphasis is on complete understanding rather than just word-meanings. Synonyms, antonyms and parts of speech are included to expand your thinking horizons. A simplified pronunciation system will help you get comfortable with how the words sound, and will be useful even long after you’ve cracked the GRE. Another great feature is the use of sample sentences that demonstrate the correct context for using the words. All this helps students improve cognitive and inferential thinking skills.


We suggest you have fun with these words. Don’t just read them from the book, but make use of them in your daily conversations. Before long you’ll start noticing them everywhere around you – in books, magazines, newspapers and movies. Use of flash cards is highly recommended to make these words permanent in your memory and breeze through the New GRE.


Here’s to your success!
