You shouldn't be memorizing these 20+ words that you mentioned, simply because TOEFl intentionally bring advanced reading passages which use advanced vocabulary, not to test the amount of vocabulary, but how you can fill the gaps and anticipate the meaning according to the context. But after finishing the reading comprehension mock test, you should have a look at the meaning of these words to know to what extent were you able to predict what the author wanted to tell.

The best way is to practice more reading passages. if you tried to memorize a lost of vocabulary words, you will find this useless because you are not familiar with the context of using these words.
