Reading high-level articles in esteemed magazines and literary journals can help improve your vocabulary and vocabulary in context skills. Which, as it happens, is a great way to improve your score on the GRE exam!
With this in mind, Chris Lele recommends a GRE-level article about once a month, as part of our GRE Article of the Month series. Each post provides both GRE vocabulary for you to focus on as you read, and a brief discussion of the piece to help pique your interest.
