But, not everyone are avid readers and to improve GRE Verbal skills, memorizing  GRE Verbal words is something you have to do.
But, not everyone have equal ability to remember words. Barron’s book has 50 Verbal Words list and it’s no an easy task to remember all the words.

  4. Use Flash Cards
  5. Word Deconstruction
  6. 80/20 Way
Brute Force – Word Memorizing
Just memorize all the words lists one at a time. Have a target of 3 to 7 wordlists per week or 1 word list per day. Read 5 word list, then make sure you can recollect all the words before starting 6th word list. you can mix it up by starting 1 to 5 then 46 to 50 and back to 6 to 10 and so on. If you plan to follow this approach, you would need atleast 4 to 5 months of GRE Exam preparation time.
Word – Word Associations
Pretty much all the words are associated to different word (synonyms). When you read a word, find all the synonyms related to that and try to remember atleast 1 synonym.  This is not easy as it sounds, but if you are struggling to find a way to remember, then it could help.
Within 3500 Barrons GRE Words, you will find related words. If you find a word in List 1 and if you read a synonym for that word in List 25, go back to List 1 and write the word you found in List 25.
Word to Picture Association
There are few companies that sell products [Word to picture associations]. Do you have to spend ton of money to buy something that will hell you remember words. It’s just waste of money. How long it would take for you to associate a picture to a word?
Seriously, if you cannot find an image to associate to a word, you better reconsider if you really want to take GRE Exam.
This another way to remember Barrons GRE Words, but its time consuming. You might spend more time trying to remember the picture than the words.
GRE Verbal Flash Cards

80/20 Way
Well, this is one of the commonly used method while studying for GRE Exam. Read as many words as possible, then just give up. Go take the exam and during GRE Test be ready to accept any you get in GRE Verbal section.  But, don’t feel bad if you didn’t score good in Verbal section.
