Perhaps someone can do something useful with this - here is a list of words (with frequency of usage) that is encountered in the GMAT Official Guide 12
A total of 6668 words.

P.S. My ideas was to create a list of "useful" words from the GMAT but it has proven harder than I thought. The words are fairly common and comparing it against frequently used words (here for example: http://www.insightin.com/esl/) has not yielded any great results. Perhaps somebody else can think of something useful to do with these....

Sure! And if you can figure out how to make these useful (e.g. boil them down to a shorter list), you will be a very popular person

I think that it's important to provide this list, as it provides members with a fuller range of options and information. But I'm not too sure what else we could do to improve it.

I guess we could make a GMATClub vocabulary workbook with pictures, sentences, and practice problems (multiple choice, fill in the blank). Such a project might be somewhat helpful for those whose first language wasn't English.

Here's an example. I used this book for studying upper-level Japanese vocabulary. Just click on the book image and scroll down a bit to see my idea.

http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E6%97%A5%E6%9C ... pd_sim_b_1

And now for negative side. This project would require many people and a very long time. Plus, English vocabulary books are already available. If someone needed that much help with English, then it would be better to study those resources and perhaps even enroll in a language course. My idea is probably unrealistic, but it's all I have at the moment.

Thanks BB, this will certainly help me in learning more words frequently used in CR/RC.

But how this sheet was created? I m intrigued.

Well, first you get the OG 12 into electronic format, then you run a word analyzer on it, and then you dump it into excel and order based on frequency - that's really it - pretty easy

If you are interested, I can dump the word counts just for the RC section - here you go.

It seems to be easy, but how you got electronic format of OG12? I think only hard copies are available in the market.
