I’m working on my vocabulary in an effort to rock the verbal section of the GRE (next week, ek). I figure an extremely high verbal will mitigate what is bound to be a low math (I’m still studying hard mom, don’t worry, but I’m just being realistic). So following are the words I would like to memorize today. I’ve realized what works best for me is when I can think of them in sentences, remembering quotes from plays has been paying off. However, I’ve also discovered that it doesn’t work out as well when I make the sentence. So please blog readers, if you know some of these words put them in a sentence for me and either leave a comment with it or email.
Yesterday, i finally committed phlegmatic to memory, a word that could never stick in my head.
