What's in this Book?
GRE Words in Context: List 2, like List 1, introduces 500 new GRE-level vocabulary words. The words in both the lists are unique. Each word is followed by its part of speech, synonym and/or descriptive meaning and three to five example sentences using that word in varied contexts. When appropriate, those varied contexts include both literal and figurative uses of the word. This approach of learning new and difficult words enables fully functional understanding of a word in all its complexities.
How will our Word List Help You Prepare for the GRE®?
Performing well on the GRE® General Test, especially its Verbal Reasoning section, requires a strong working knowledge of the vocabulary that appears in the questions—how those words function both literally and figuratively, how their meanings vary based on context, and how (in many cases) they operate as more than one part of speech.
Using All Three (3) of our Word Lists Can Put Your Preparation on the Fast Track
We offer three (3) Word Lists to help you prepare for the GRE®: List #1, List #2 (this list), and a Challenging list. It is important to remember that your goal is to be fully conversant in as many of these vocabulary words as possible. Why? You must not only recognize and comprehend the words when you encounter them in GRE® test questions, but you must also utilize sophisticated vocabulary to express your own ideas in the Analytical Writing section of the test. It is to your advantage, therefore, to have as many high-level vocabulary words as possible at your disposal. This is especially difficult to do if your preparation time is limited.
Working with all three lists, you can “fast track” your preparation by making it your first priority to activate your prior familiarity with all 1500 words across the lists. Because these are words with which you are already familiar, they will be the easiest to move (through your study of the word lists) from “familiar” to “fully-functioning.” As “fully-functioning” words in your vocabulary, you will be comfortable using them when composing your responses to the Analytical Writing tasks on the GRE®. If, after activating as many familiar words as possible across all three (3) lists, you still have preparation time left, you may then turn your attention to the remaining words and use the word lists to help you become fully conversant in them.
How Can our Word Lists Help You Beyond the GRE®?
The goal of entrance exams, like the GRE®, is to anticipate the test-taker’s likelihood of success in the field into which they seek entry. Thus, the “long view” of mastering sophisticated vocabulary is that doing so will not only help you prepare for the GRE®, but will simultaneously prepare you for what lies ahead: comprehending, analyzing, and evaluating graduate-level materials and writing with the complexity and sophistication expected of a graduate-level student. To put it simply: a fully-functioning, high-level vocabulary is the key to success in your graduate experience.
