GRE Vocabulary remaining until August 2011

First, the GRE Good News!

The great news about the Revised GRE is that the vocabulary questions will be discontinued. This does mean that the GRE will be easier. It does mean that vocabulary should not be a barrier to answering the questions.

Now, the GRE Bad News!

The Revised GRE will not debut until August 2011. This means that the vocabulary questions will be part of the GRE for the foreseeable future.

    the new gre is not easier..now also vocabulary matters a lot…in old gre if anyone is perfect with vocabulary he can get >600 in verbal but in new gre one has to know the vocab along with it’s application..

    Of course the vocabulary matters. It’s just that you are no longer being tested directly on your knowledge of that vocabulary. The Revised GRE is much more contextual. The meaning of most of the words can be determined from the sentence or paragraph. In this sense it is very similar to the old “sentence completion” question type.
