I have mentioned this somewhere else - you don't need to study vocabulary just for the sake of vocabulary (unless your English is bad of course) but assuming you have some proficiency, make the judgement as you go. If you encounter a word that does not seem important in James Clavel's Shogun (armor element, for example), then you can skip it but if you are seeing the same word a few times, I would write it out, and make sure you know it.

I actually looked up almost all words (but did not write them down). If i encountered the same word again, I wrote it into my notebook.

So, to answer your question - stop and look it up is my suggestion


Greetings BB!
Thanks a lot for this helpful post.

To others (esp. the one who struggle with Vocab), below are my Recommendations:

PLEASE DO NOT WRITE DOWN VOCAB NOTES:
Here's Why --- [1] English is a vast language, you can never learn all the words; and writing down vocab notes is just like writing another dictionary in your own handwriting :P :lol: ; [2] You may definitely argue with me on my first point, and will still take a book-a dictionary-a new notebook-a pen, and still start writing these BEAUTIFUL Alien Words + Meaning + Syn. + Any. + Phrasal usage, etc, etc... (Even I did it 3 years back when was preparing for CAT); BUT, one fine night when you will reach 100th (read it as 200th or 300th, based on your stamina :P ) page this handwritten notebook --- You will come back to this post and will appreciate my first point. [3] And at last, believe me, even after writing hundreds of pages... you will still never be able to build good vocab, BCOZ logically, "Writing those words" and "Understanding those words" are 2 different things 8-)

SO, WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO IMPROVE VOCAB:
Here's the trick - Train Your brain to understand words. And believe me... it's very easy :!:
[1] As BB says, READ ALOT...; [2] While reading ANYTHING (Newspaper, Magazine, or even any SC/CR/RC content) try to guess the meaning of that word, which you don't know. VERY IMP: Just Guess! Don't refer to dictionary (you will do that later); [3] If that word was important --- chances are it will again reappear somewhere else... and again somewhere else... and the beauty is --- by that time, you must have gained a fair idea of the meaning of that word --- and be doubly sure, THEN you can refer to a dictionary and cross check.
In summary -
The point is NOT to find the exact meaning of the word (unless you are preparing only for GMAT, and not GRE :P ), but to train the mind to tackle ANY ANY Alien Word. This will help you a lot at the actual test.


:arrow: Comments are appreciated.
