hi guys, I recently started preparation for GRE using magoosh & membean. I came across Quizlet & have been wondering if there any GRE word lists with mnemonics (not only definitions). Unfortunately, I'm unable to find any such lists on quizlet, vocabulary.com I am looking for the best of both mnemonicdictionary.com & quizlet.com Please let me know if anyone has already come across such a platform.
Hi All, My name is Apoorv Bhargava. I graduated in 2008 from IIT Roorkee. I have started with a page on fb (www.facebook.com/EdPrep). Visit the page and learn new words each day with the help of mnemonics. Do let me know your feedback on the page. Thanks, Apoorv
To remember words easily you must stimulate the place where words and their meanings are stored – your brain. The human brain doesn’t bother registering things that are dull and looks out for things that are out of the ordinary, things that evoke a certain emotion in us. So we are likely to remember things that make us laugh, cry, feel disgusted, feel shy etc. Let me give you an example. Abscond – to depart secretly and hide. A.B.’s condom tore. She got pregnant and had to depart secretly and hide at her grandmother’s house. A sentence like that is bound to get some reaction from you. You may think that it is absurd or funny or disgusting to use such a situation to remember a word or maybe something else. Whatever the case may be, it will make your brain more active than reading a simple word and its meaning and that will help to stick the word in your memory. So try making mnemonics to learn words. Also try making a mnemonic that is closely related to the word. Check out the videos at this site to get a better idea - Learnodo Retaino Newtonic
