I bought these to supplement my "Cracking the GRE" book because it was taking me waaaay too long to write out all of the flashcards for the "hit parade" words in the book. I assumed that since the words in the book are supposedly the most important to learn that they would be included in the flashcards, especially since it is the same publisher. Unfortunately that was not the case and I ended up using 48 out of 50 of the extra cards included in the set to make my own flashcards to make up the difference of the missing "hit parade" words (and this doesn't include the "beyond the hit parade" ones, I haven't even made it that far). So it has saved me some time, but it seems a bit silly to me that these wouldn't be complete.

Also, on the "cracking" DVD, they show you how to set up flashcards to make them the most useful. They say to create a sentence with a clue and to put that clue on the front of the card to help you remember. They also said to include the pronunciation of the word. These flashcards have synonyms, and a sentence along with the definition on the back, but not the other two tips that the folks at Princeton review had said to use when making your own flashcards... again a discrepancy.

Overall, I do think these flashcards are helpful, I just think that Princeton Review should be more consistent across studying materials to make all of our lives easier. Mastering even a small percentage of all the possible GRE words is an arduous task, so anything that makes it even a little bit easier is worth it, I say.

When I was looking to buy a set of flashcards, I was very torn between getting the Kaplan version and this version. I have to say that I am absolutely in love with these flashcards! They're visually appealing, while still being basic, provide great definitions as well as sentences and synonyms. It even comes with 50 additional cards to make your own.. genious. I've only had them for 2 days, and I've already learned 50 new words! This has to be the single best GRE-study-aid that I have purchased so far.

I recommend this product to anyone preparing to take the GRE. I took the ETS practice test as a baseline before studying and received a score of 152 (490 scaled/56th percentile). When I reviewed the questions that I missed, the problem was that I couldn't understand the question because it all hinged on a word I was unfamiliar with. This is why I decided to buy vocab flash cards.

I purchased this one in addition to the Barron's cards. There are only about 20 vocab words from Barron's that aren't in the Princeton Review cards. This product has far more words; however, it doesn't help with the quantitative section like Barron's does. I didn't see this as a problem, though, since I already have a grasp of those concepts.

As a procrastinator, I waited until five days before my test to begin studying the vocab, which I wouldn't recommend.
How I studied:
1. I went through all 500 and pulled out the ones I already explicitly knew (~100 words)
2. I divided them by letters and designated 8/9 letters per day for the first three days.
3. I read the word, the definition, synonyms, the sentence, and the word again for one letter of the alphabet at a time. If I could think of a hint for remembering the word, I wrote that on the back.
4. I went though that letter and pulled out the ones I remembered and went through the process of reading the card again and again until I remembered all the words for that specific letter.
5. On the fourth day, I went through all 500 again and studied the ones that I had forgotten.
6. On the fifth day, I took the test.

I took my GRE and received a score of 161 (620 scaled/89th percentile). The questions are far easier to answer when you understand what it's asking.

First, I would like to say thanks to Amazon.com for shipping this product so quickly!

GRE flash cards from Princeton Review is a great way to learn new words, and I am proud to say that I was able to learn 400+ words from this box within 3 weeks!! I gave this a 4 because I had to look up how to pronounce the words correctly... I personally believe that this is an imperative part of learning them.

I wish i read more reviews from people that has already taken the test. Anyhoot,i learned about 350 words in 5 days and took the GRE 3 days ago. I saw about 10-15 words which is GREAT. it brought my score up another 150 pts from last score. I enjoyed how the cards are made, it was little, simple, cute, and helpful.

Not all of the vocabulary words in the 2011 edition of The Princeton Review GRE prep book are on these flash cards. This doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it. It'll save you having to write all of them on blank cards.

These flashcards are very good. The quality of paper is good. One can flip the card and see the Definitions and sample sentences on the back. The reason that I rated 4 stars instead of 5 is that there is no phonetic symbols or any information about how to pronounce the word since some word are difficult to pronounce just based on its spelling.
