I'm only aware of the vocabulary list that is part of the Manhattan GMAT
Foundations of Verbal Supplement (http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... 7&catid=10
). I should put in a plug for the Foundations book - it's a fantastic resource for students struggling with grammar as well as those who are trying to perfect their grammar. If you are completely solid on the basic principles, understanding complex rules and applications is much easier.
I have not seen an advanced list of vocabulary, and frankly I think it would be impossible to generate a meaningful vocabulary list of "advanced" terms. Because the list of possible "advanced" terms is impossibly large, you need to assume that you will face terms on the GMAT that you have never seen before and you will have to start understanding terms based on context. Everyone encounters terms they haven't seen before, but the more successfuly test takers are able to infer the meaning of the term based on context clues (both from the context of the passage and from the language of the questions).
You can practice inferring the meaning by reading difficult passages and indentifying new words for which you don't know the definition. Take a best guess at the meaning then check yourself against a dictionary. With practice, your ability to infer the meaning of the terms will improve. You can practice with Reading Comp questions from the OGs (these are sure to be full of unknown terms) or you can read outside sources like The Economist
, Scientific American, or even Wikipedia.
