If you are an American student
who is not strong in vocab
Do you realize that most students begin to focus on GRE 2 to 4 weeks before the test? You can confirm this yourself if you spend 10 minutes checking out the reviews on Amazon.com.
If you are not already super strong in vocab, but want to score high on GRE, then the Franklin Vocab System's audio program for GRE vocab can greatly help you get a higher score.

It may surprise you that GRE tends to test you for meanings that are not the most common meanings of words. In fact, some of these you may have never heard in your life.
For example, here are some words and the meanings you need to know (taken from the course). I have also added the meaning that will not lead to the correct answer:
milk = extract
USE = the directors milked the company of several million dollars
(not the milk you drink)
stole = long scarf
USE = a mink stole
(not a form of steal)
riddle = to make many holes in, permeate
USE = the anti-aircraft guns riddled the plane's wings with bullets
(not a puzzle)
root = to dig
USE = she rooted through the papers on her desk
(not the root of a tree)
kite = bad check
USE = *
(not a kite that people fly)
rifle = search through and steal
USE = the safe had been rifled and the diamonds were gone
(not the rifle used for firing bullets)
ejaculate = exclaim
USE = "You've got my umbrella!" he ejaculated
(not sex related ejaculation)
You don't get 3 or 5 or 10 meanings and sentences that are impossible to remember (a dictionary is better if you want to do a PhD on some aspects of words).
I give you short and memorable sentence fragments, so you can remember faster and better without wasting time.
Here are some examples from the course:
euphoria = elation, feeling of well-being or happiness
USE = in a state of euphoria
evade = to avoid
USE = don't evade taxes
excerpt = selection from a book, extract
USE = excerpt of a new book
illicit = unlawful, illegal
USE = illicit liquor
immense = huge
USE = at immense cost
de facto = actual
USE = de facto standard (not full sentence)
draconian = harsh
USE = draconian laws
prodigy = a person with extraordinary ability or talent
USE = a child prodigy
eke = to add to, supplement
USE = to eke out a living
Herculean = powerful, large
USE = a Herculean task
pyrrhic = a battle won with unacceptable losses
USE = a pyrrhic victory
Many students use this system combined with the official GRE book to maximize their GRE score for admission to a graduate school of their choice.

Unlike dictionaries, for most words, we give only one or two meanings that are most appropriate for GRE. The goal is to memorize the "right meanings" and not "all the dictionary meanings".
