The Vocabulary Builder Workbook is Published!

I’m excited to announce that the Vocabulary Builder Workbook has officially been released on Amazon!

The book doesn’t just give you 1,400 important words (though you do get that, too!). You also get word histories, along with helpful example sentences and exercises at the end of each chapter.

And because you are seeing how the words work in context, they’ll be more likely to stick.

For the ultimate vocabulary one-two combo, many of the words in the Vocabulary Builder Workbook appear in my popular YouTube vocabulary series, better known as Vocabulary Wednesday. All you have to do is type in the vocabulary word and “Youtube GRE Vocab Wednesday” into Google and the video will come up. For instance, if the word is “reticent,” you’d type reticent Youtube GRE Vocab Wednesday and you’ll get me describing the word in real time.

So whether you need to learn these words for a test, hope to improve your writing, or simply become a sharper thinker, pick up a copy of my Vocabulary Builder Workbook today.

    I get a soft copy of your Vocabulary Builder, i want to know that it contains all the words from flashcards and vocabulary E book or they are different from them. Is it sufficient to work over these 1400 words

      Hi Merona,

      We hope you enjoy this vocabulary workbook! There is a lot of overlap between the flashcards and the words in this book, but the words in this book were not selected specifically from our flashcards/apps. It will certainly help you to learn many of the words in our flashcards and build your general vocabulary and reading comprehension skills 😀

      However, it’s difficult to say whether studying the words in the workbook is enough. The number of words you need to learn depends on your background and situation. Unfortunately, there isn’t a definite answer that works for everybody. Studying 1,000 flashcards can certainly be helpful, but it might not be a good idea in all cases. Every student starts from a different place in terms of vocabulary. Some students might need only a little bit of vocabulary work, whereas others might need to spend a large portion of their studying on vocab.

      Whether any single vocab resource is enough for you personally or not depends on your starting vocabulary. The GRE tests many, many words that are not in our flashcards (or any vocabulary lists). That’s why it’s important to read as much possible as part of your studies! This is true no matter what level your vocabulary is at. This blog post can help you get started with reading for vocabulary:
