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.

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 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.
I also purchased the 500 Essential Words: GRE Vocabulary Flash Cards (Manhattan Prep GRE Strategy Guides). I would say, if you're an English major, or someone who reads a lot of English Lit, it wouldn't hurt to get both, but focus more on this set, as they'll definitely be more of a challenge. You'll probably know most of the Essential words already.
My set did have cards out of order, but that doesn't bother me at all.
