It may surprise you that GRE tends to test you for meanings that are not the most common meanings of words. In fact, some of these you may never have heard in your life.
For example, here are some words and the meanings you need to know (taken from the course). I have also added the meaning that will not lead to correct answer:
milk = extract
USE = the directors milked the company of several million dollars
(not the milk you drink)
stole = long scarf
USE = a mink stole
(not a form of steal)
riddle = to make many holes in, permeate
USE = the anti-aircraft guns riddled the plane's wings with bullets
(not a puzzle)
root = to dig
USE = she rooted through the papers on her desk
(not root of a tree)
kite = bad check
USE = *
(not a kite that people fly)
rifle = search through and steal
USE = the safe had been rifled and the diamonds were gone
(not the rifle used for firing bullets)
ejaculate = exclaim
USE = You've got my umbrella! he ejaculated
(not sex related ejaculation)
You don't get 3 or 5 or 10 meanings and sentences that are impossible to remember (a dictionary is better if you want to do PhD on some aspects of words).
I give you short and memorable sentence fragments, so you can remember faster and better without wasting time.
Here are some examples from the course:
euphoria = elation, feeling of well-being or happiness
USE = in a state of euphoria
evade = to avoid
USE = don't evade taxes
excerpt = selection from a book, extract
USE = excerpt of a new book
illicit = unlawful, illegal
USE = illicit liquor
immense = huge
USE = at immense cost
de facto = actual
USE = de facto standard (Not full sentence)
draconian = harsh
USE = draconian laws
prodigy = a person with extraordinary ability or talent
USE = a child prodigy
eke = to add to, supplement
USE = to eke out a living
Herculean = powerful, large
USE = a Herculean task
pyrrhic = a battle won with unacceptable losses
USE = a pyrrhic victory
Many students use this audio program combined with the official GRE book to maximize their GRE score for admission to a graduate school of their choice.
This course helps you memorize in a new way that makes it easy for almost anybody to memorize the vocab 3 to 7 times faster.
You can enjoy because you can sit down and relax and recharge your energy while you learn.
Here is what you get:
19 Vocab Sessions: Each session is up to 60 minutes
long. You get the complete 3,851 words required for the GRE test.
You revise up to 200 words. About half the words are in a male voice and half in a female voice. For all words, you hear meanings, and for most words, you also hear memorable contextual sentence fragments that have been very carefully chosen for easy memorization.
Unlike dictionaries, for most words, we give only one or two meanings that are most appropriate for GRE. The goal is to memorize the "right meanings" and not "all the dictionary meanings".
The recording is by two good professional voiceover experts (male and female) with an advanced knowledge of the vocabulary.
Designed so that you quickly get through the words you already know, and focus on the words you don't know so well. Once you learn a word well, you no longer have to waste time repeating it.
This allows you to master maximum number of words in minimum time because you don't waste time going through words you already know as in case of books or audio recordings.
The system offers all the 3,587 GRE words.
When you log in, a word is shown without MEANING or USE. See example below.
The screen and use
When you click "DROP", MEANING and USE are shown and you are asked to confirm
When you click a button other than "DROP", MEANING and USE are shown and the button "NEXT" appears. If you click it, immediately next word is shown. If you don''t click it, then the next word appears after 10 seconds (automatically which saves you a click)'
All the 3,587 GRE words are included online. Most users can revise upto 120 to 300 words per hour. That means, if you already know 1500 words perfectly well, then in only 5 hours or so, you can mark them as DROP. And, then onward, you spend time in learning only those words are you not 100% sure.
