condescension is the word I happened to know; I found it in the WORD Smart by Princeton, but unfortunately it means the opposite. I had to cheat and look up in the dictionary the correct word.... :oops:

Well, many of us are not native speakers; therefore, the verbal part of the gmat is a torture for us. We need a lot of practice, so any interesting verbal questions are helpful. Moreover, there are not so many verbal exercises available.

If you are a native English speaker, then just imagine your behavior while taking an aptitude test in Russian for example. This thought should answer your question.

No, I meant there is no vocabulary for GMAT


You are welcome to post new verbal questions if you have any. We lack them. I myself have posted all that I have, so I need to search for new ones somewhere else. For example, among SAT questions.
