About the test: The first three questions of each section on the test put you into a bracket. To get a high score you need to anwer the first three questions correctly to be in a high bracket.
My first experience with the GRE: I memorized every word in this box. I felt more than confident in my ability to get a decent score. HOWEVER, the first three words on the test were words that were not in the box. I was put in the lowest bracket and only saw ONE word from this box. I made a 470.
After this: I went to a booksstore and looked through vocabulary books until I found a book that had some words I had seen on the test(simpler words than in this box). I had to look through a lot of books. Finally I found them in the Kaplan Vocabulary Prep Level One for the SATSAT Vocabulary Prep Level 1. I learned most all of the words in this book as well as the GRE box.
GRE take two: Much improvement. I could tell during the test that I was in a harder bracket. I recognized most all the words, there was a mixture from this box and from the SAT book (granted I had forgotten some of the meanings!). My score was a 620 (not great, but I am very happy with it).
Overall: I recommend this box, it is convinient and you can definitely learn the words. As for the example sentences that some have complained about - they may not be an accurate use of the word, but they will help you remember the meaning (which is all I cared about). However, if you vocabulary is abysmal, you will need this as well as a teaching aid with more simple words.
The good thing about the words being in a book is that I can actually take all of the words with me. There is no way I could carry 500 flash cards and study in the car, at the doctor's office, etc.
Of course there is a chance that you will memorize patterns, but you can lessen that chance if you vary your study methods. Flashcards is never enough.
