Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

In 2000, Teach for America alumnus and Yale graduate Zeke Vanderhoek had a radical idea: students learn better from better teachers. His vision of what test prep could be if written and taught by great educators led him to start Manhattan Prep. Since we began, Manhattan Prep has grown from a boutique tutoring company to one of the world’s leading test prep providers, offering GMAT, GRE, LSAT, ACT, and SAT courses and tutoring worldwide.

We believe test prep should be real education. From our instructors to our materials, we work to teach you the skills you’ll need to succeed on the test, in school, and beyond.

Learning vocabulary using file cards is an old and well-established technique. But with ordinary cards (home-made ones for instance, if I think of my own ones) it can happen that the informations given on the "solution side" are all too scarce, leaving questions unanswered like "Which preposition goes with the verb?" or not giving enough information about restrictions in use. Yet, the author quotes examples of standard and figurative use, sometimes delivers fine infos concerning language politics or nuances. By the given synonyms and related words, the reader can get (at least I hope so) a fine idea about when, how and with which connotations a word is used. Coming from a native American speaker, all this seems very reliable to me.
The only infos I would be reluctant to forward unchecked, are some etymological ones like: "Related to vehicle, vex comes from a root for 'to convey' - transportation wasn't so smooth in Roman times, so imagine the vexation that might result from being pulled in a cart by horses over lots of rocks." Personally, I would compare "vex" to the Latin "vexare" or to the French "vexer" rather than to "vehiculum" or "convey". But it happens often enough that specialists, too, are devided about the etymology of single words. It might just be questionable if the autor is well-advised if she gives such infos as if they were uncontestable. Nonetheless, the cards exceed my expectations by far, and I would expect that those who prepare for a GRE test have developped their own esprit critique which they can make use of when studying the cards. Five stars from me.

my main source of words for the GRE 31. August 2012
Von Bikes With The Fishes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten
I recently took the revised GRE and scored in the 85th percentile on the verbal section (much to my surprise I might add). I used both the Manhattans 500 Essential Words Flash Cards 500 Essential Words: GRE Vocabulary Flash Cards as well as the Manhattan 500 Advanced Words Flash Cards 500 Advanced Words: GRE Vocabulary Flash Cards. After making it through both of these sets of flash cards, I felt like I had a fairly good vocabulary for the GRE and did see many of these words on the test.

With this noted, if you do have additional time after finishing these two sets of flash cards, I **HIGHLY RECOMMEND** that you learn the 300 or so most common root words for the GRE as well. Root words are very helpful in deciphering words that you don't know that will come up on the GRE. I found Barron's Essential Words for the GRE book Essential Words for the GRE (Barron's GRE) to be a good source for this, although I'm sure you can find these same root words in the Kaplan or related books as well. And while 300 root words seems like a lot of words to learn, you will probably know some/many of these words already, so fear not! There doesn't seem to be a good set of root word flash cards out there, so I ended up making my own, which was fine. One last note about learning root words: they will also help to strengthen and reinforce the vocab words you already know or are learning from both sets of the Manhattan cards. Learn your root words!

If you need help with reading comprehension and verbal practice problems, I used several different books. Here is my preferred list of books, in order:

Kaplan New GRE Verbal Workbook
New GRE Verbal Workbook (Kaplan GRE)
While I usually don't like Kaplan as a company (and I have not used any of their other books), I *would* highly recommend using their verbal workbook as there seems to be a good amount of practice problems and they seem similar to what you might see on the GRE.

Secondly, I did use the Barron's GRE Verbal Workbook Barron's GRE Verbal Workbook and while I found it useful for it's large amount of practice problems, I found some of the vocab words used as answers were less common that what I saw either on the GRE or on other practice problems and practice tests. With this noted, I still recommend using this book.

Finally, I did use Manhattan's Reading Comprehension and Essay GRE Strategy Book as well. Reading Comprehension & Essays GRE Strategy Guide, 3rd Edition (Manhattan Prep Strategy Guides). The best thing I got from this book is learning how to take brief notes while reading over the reading passages on the GRE. Taking notes helps to reinforce what you are reading, a technique not talked about very often by other books. The practice problems in this book are decent, but nothing above that. I do wish they could have put more practice problems in this book (like the Kaplan Verbal Workbook), but there is still useful content here. If you are struggling with the analytical writing section, there are some good tips on this section as well.

One final note about both practicing your verbal, but also your math/quantitative: do as many practice tests as you can!!! When you purchase a book (any book I believe) from Manhattan, you get an access code to 6 full length online practice tests. I found these practice tests VERY VERY USEFUL for getting comfortable with the GRE format but also applying all of the verbal and math skills I was practicing. Most of the questions are very similar in difficulty to what you will see and you can review your questions as well. By the way, always review problems you get wrong, this is really important! For Kaplan, you have to purchase the Kaplan Premiere GRE review book to get the disc with access to 10 verbal practice tests and 10 quantitative practice tests. Like the Manhattan, I found these practice tests VERY VERY useful. Do yourself a favor, and get access to both the Manhattan and the Kaplan practice tests It will help immensely!

Very Impressive Flashcard Set 10. November 2012
Von Michal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten Verifizierter Kauf
I teach standardized tests full time and recommend these vocabulary flash cards to my students over all others. They're well put-together, both in terms of their physical qualities and durability, and the content therein. Coupled with the 500 Essential Words box set, it's one of the best investments to make for GRE studies.

My only contention with the list is that, every so often, Manhattan seems to get a bit lazy with etymologies. I remember a few words that begin with "de-" where the prefix "de-" emphasizes a definition rather than giving its opposite. An example is the word "delimit", which means "to set boundaries." Rather than explaining that the "de-" is a root from Latinate languages, they just shrug it off and say "this prefix doesn't seem to do much", but it's a very common trait in English phrasings, as in the words "definite", "demarcate", "delineate", and so on, where the "de-" prefix is actually reinforcing an idea.

Product is good, but be careful some cards maybe doubled and some are missing. 12. Dezember 2014
Von Allen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten Verifizierter Kauf
The product itself is very good. But the one I bought has an obvious problem. The words start with A,B are missing, the words start with C,D are doubled, and since I bought both essential and advanced words, after I finish the essential one, it's too late to return this one....

The best 22. Januar 2013
Von Arafat Aljoufi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten Verifizierter Kauf
I'm an international student, English is not my native language. I used to study Barron 800 vocabulary for a while then changed to Manhattan flash cards. I can say that Manhattan is much better. Examples are easy to remember, synonyms are delivered in an easy way. I love it!

Very Useful! 22. Dezember 2012
Von Sina Ghiabi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten Verifizierter Kauf
Very Useful! Almost all the words that are used on the test can be found in the Manhattan sets if you are taking GRE I would recommend buying these. I am not a native speaker and they helped me a copious amount. Native English speakers would know most of the words but these cards give different meanings and usage of the words.
