I have come across this basic level vocabulary list given out by manhattan.
Its compilation is very good and aids faster learning......
......But then its very basic level list...any decent student would know at least 90% of the words given in it.

I am wondering....did manhattan release any vocabulary list for advance level also ?
It would be surprising if they have not!

Did anyone come across any such list by manhattan ?

Thanks to all those who answer and many thanks to anyone who can provide me with this list

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.

Hi Kyle,

I found a Manhattan vocabulary list on internet, the list was released on 2006. Is this list as powerful as it was on 2006 or is it needed to be updated? Do you recommend me the same list yet now?

Kind regards,

Manuel

I wouldn't recommend prioritizing vocabulary for the GMAT. A strong vocabulary can be helpful, but the situation is still like Kyle described in the above post many years ago - it's much, much more useful to be able to guess/infer the meaning of words (and skip over words that you don't need to know), than to know all of the vocabulary cold. This might be a silly question, but are you sure you aren't looking at one of our GRE word lists? There isn't a lot out there on vocabulary study for the GMAT, and the GMAT doesn't test vocabulary directly...

Ccooley,

I am sure is a GMAT word list, you can see the list in this link: http://www.manhattanreview.com/download ... y-List.pdf
I just found a new version of the list I mentioned in the previous e-mail.
Regards,
Manuel

Yikes. That's not a Manhattan Prep word list - it's produced by 'Manhattan Review', which is a different test prep company that has nothing to do with us. So, I can't really comment on it beyond what I said above (that studying lists of vocab is less useful than honing your reading skills).
