Hi Rya, here is my first piece of advice: Try to stay cool. It’s just a test, the only real exam that exists is life itself and it happens every minute of every day. As for the GRE, you might want to get an audio vocabulary program such as Executive Vocabulary and listen to a number of sessions every day. This will help you memorize more words in a shorter period of time. At any rate you should be realistic: How many new words can learn within two weeks? What’s more important than memorizing separate words is to develop an effective reading comprehension technique. Try to infer the meaning of unknown words from the context. Concentrate on the gist of the text and follow your intuition. Those are skills you will need later in life, too. Finally, ask yourself how important those exams really are to you. When did you start preparing for them? How many exams are you still going to take in your life?
Let me know what you think.
