    too many books what to use?

    Sponsored Ad:
    I have several books to prep for the GRE, my weakness is verbal especially not knowing much vocab I started studying today with hopes of taking the exam in mid Jan.
    I started going thru some methods for ants, analogy's & sc but realized I am getting everything wrong since I have poor vocab.

    I decided to skip to a chapter on reading comp instead but how do I begin?
    I assume maybe should I spend bout a moth studying vocab before doing practice questions or do practice questions and have to look up each word.

    Is there a prefered word list?

    I have the following books:
    Kaplan GRE Vocab in a Box, Barrons Essential Words for GRE, PR Wordmart, ARCO Words for test takers
    NOVA's GRE, Barrons GRE 2009, PR Guide to GRE


    Overall what is the best way to start preparing for verbal with having a poor vocab and what books should I focus on or purchase?

    THANKS !!!!!!!!!!!!

    i think a good start is Barron's frequent list and then Kaplan's high frequency list. you will get a general sense and then you can start memorizing Barron's 2 wordlists per day and finally do the tests from all the books...

    Yes, I think you have too many books, esp the vocab books. Drop a few of them!
