have you guys tried for preparing Barron’s word list?

unlike ordinary dictionary this dictionary not only gives you meaning of words but also a key mnemonic to retain that meaning of words for long time in our memory.

An example from Mnemonic Dictionary :

Word – abase

Meaning – lower; degrade; humiliate; make humble; make (oneself) lose self-respect

Mnemonic – abase means without base and without base things fall down – so degrade (just imagine a house without a strong base)

Just see how easy it is to remember meaning of abase using mnemonic.

I didn’t bother with Barron’s…too long a list, and you’ll hardly see any of those words on the real GRE. I used Word Smart for the GRE instead…much better list, and it has tips for creating your own mnemonic devices. That site is really handy, though, thanks for posting it!

Wow, a new thing for me…I am still newbie in learning the requirements of GRE. Thanks a bunch for your helpful post amit_aggarwal. :slight_smile:
