Vocabulary for revised GRE

Sponsored Links

As we know with revised GRE antonyms and analogy questions are going completely out of picture so no more out of context words. Does this mean there would be no vocabulary portion in revised GRE? Not exactly! There would be questions on in- context vocabulary. Read following words they can help you in solving Reading Comprehension (RC), Sentence Equivalence, and Text Completion Questions.


Segregated, providing privacy or seclusion; Example, 1-When a person becomes depressed, s/he tries to sequester himself from the society 2-  It is not right to sequester certain people on the basis of their caste and creed.


Right granted by law or contract, claim; Example, 1- This is every child’s entitlement to get their parents’ support. 2- Only few are entitled to get free pass.


Noisy, disorderly; Example, 1- Last night there was so much tumultuous situation in my neighborhood . It seemed like some mischief was going on. 2- When I lost my permanent job that was tumultuous period of my life.


Marked by a narrow focus on or display of learning especially its trivial aspects; Example, 1-The professor’s lecture was so pedantic that students found it tough to retain in it. 2- Some people are so pedantic in performing religious rituals that they create havoc for everybody.


The quality of being notorious; Example, He had an ambition to be celebrity fashion designer instead he had gained notoriety for being fashion fopa.


Tending to induce sleep, drowsy; Example, You feel sleepy after taking cough medicine because generally all cough syrups have soporific properties.

  12. Yitsik on June 5th, 2011 7:37 pm

    Should one look for a new words list or are they going to stay the same more or less?
    Is there a need to learn words as there use to be in the old GRE test?

  13. shipra on June 7th, 2011 4:40 am

    Yitsik, out of context vocabulary questions are longer part of revised GRE, but in context vocabulary question( RC) questions is still a part of revised GRE.

    which edition of barrons book contain the revised gre vocabulory words?

  19. Betsy on June 16th, 2011 7:33 pm

    For the revised GRE prep books, I’m having trouble choosing between Barron, Princeton, and Kaplan. I’d like to purchase two books.

  20. Betsy on June 16th, 2011 7:34 pm


    I’m having trouble choosing between Kaplan, Barron, and Princeton. I’d like to purchase two books. I was thinking Barron and Kaplan’s Premier or Barron and Kaplan’s Math workbook+verbal workbook.

  21. shipra on June 17th, 2011 4:17 am

    Betsy, both are good options.. you can choose any. However you can also visit takethegre.com official website launched by ets.org for help pertaining to books..

  22. satpreet on June 19th, 2011 3:18 am

    barrons according to revised pattern is still unavailable…nd we have two n half months only for prep …so kindly suggest something.

  23. shipra on June 20th, 2011 4:31 am

    Satpreet visit takethegre.com official ETS website for revised GRE..

  24. Betsy on June 20th, 2011 5:13 am

    Satpreet, I found there is a Barron’s New GRE 19th Edition on amazon available (it came out in June) for the new test!

    But still, can someone please suggest which of the books available for the new GRE they would recommend?

    The ETS website only provides a few resources and of course they would recommend the customers to get their book over Kaplan, Barron, or Princeton.

  26. khushaal popli on June 28th, 2011 8:10 pm

    Hey good work,
    i wanted to know tat wil it be useful to learn old word list for this new test, i meant barrons 3500 words

  27. shipra on June 29th, 2011 4:09 am

    Popli, there are many vocab based questions in current GRE. We know that out of context vocab is no longer part of revised GRE. So all 3500 words might not be so useful in revised GRE.

  28. shipra on June 29th, 2011 4:12 am

    Thanks for your comment Jasmeen.

  29. Ram Chouksey on July 12th, 2011 7:28 am

    Hey shipra,

    hat do you mean by OUT OF CONTEXT words?
    Are High frequency words really that important? ,so that hefty attention have to be given to them exclusively

  36. shipra on July 19th, 2011 4:29 am

    Ashwin, revised verbal is quite change,questions like antonym and analogy questions are such vocab, which is no longer a part of revised GRE.

  37. morie on July 19th, 2011 11:53 pm

    Are there new vocab words for the revised GRE? Or are they the same words as the old GRE, but just “in context” and not “out of context”?
