Thanks for doing the work to put this list together. A good place to start in studying for the GREs, especially for finding words that you think you know but don't!

Oh wow... I didn't know other people could see my lists! I'm glad you're all finding it helpful - I'm using these for my own studies, and most of the words are compiled from The Princeton Review, some from Barron's, and some I have encountered on various practice tests. It seems that I am no longer able to edit this list, as the "Edit" tab has been replaced by a "Comments" tab. However, now that I know others are using them, I will put more in the descriptions from now on. Lol.

Most of these words are not too challenging for an adult native English speaker. Still the list is a useful refresher and I've personally discovered that while I may be able to use these words in conversation, my spelling is terrible!

Great list.But have few drawbacks,majority of the correct options are placed at the A.This gives a tendency to challenge taking student to choose option A.Otherwise it is great.
