All GRE sections, including Math, need a strong vocabulary to get a good score; some GRE test takers have to spend lots of time dealing with the tough task. PDF is a standard and popular format. If you are looking for a GRE vocabulary PDF file, you get the right place.
If you start building GRE vocabulary, a relatively small vocabulary PDF is the correct choice. After a few days' work, you possibly can make a better decision: go ahead or replace it with a harder PDF. Even if the current vocabulary is entirely useless, you waste a few days only.
For starters, we recommend a small GRE word list PDF: GRE 1200 Words in 30 Days. It contains must-have words for most GRE test takers. This GRE vocabulary PDF is free to download.
If you aren't sure which vocabulary is fit your case, we recommend considering 5000 GRE Wods. This is a large vocabulary but organized into 4 levels. The mentioned "1200 Words in 30 Days" is actually its first level. It helps to focus on the right content in a narrow timeframe.
We already published Ebook: 5000 GRE Words on main markets:
We made some GRE vocabulary PDF files based on the other 2 lists on the website, which can be downloaded directly. (Files of full groups need VIP account to access.)
