Thousands of GRE test takers recommended these vocabularies. To improve efficiency, we integrate some cutting-edge information technologies to offer interactive study, review, and practice.

Each vocabulary has a summary page to host all words. The page initially shows words alone. You can retrieve explanations on demand. The page is supposed to skim or review the whole vocabulary quickly.

Then a vocabulary is categorized by alphabet into multiple groups, which are smaller and easy to manage study activities. Group also organizes features based on each word, such as online exercises and offline flashcards. The group total of a vocabulary and word total of a group aren't fixed; usually the former is from 2 to 20, the latter is from 100 to 1000.
