Go to any book store and get a vocab book. Another quick way is to read the Wall street journal and have a dictionary with you.

hi,
thanks for the advice. I don't have problem reading the wall stret journal, but what I need is building my vocabulary on words that often come up in GMAT, but not necessarily used often in publications or daily context. I am not a native speaker. Any thought?

I think reading the OG is sufficient to build your vocabulary for the GMAT -- remember, the GMAT does not test your vocabulary by itself. The OG should give you enough "working words" to work through the test. Reading the WSJ is helpful and will keep you informed re: current events.
