GRE Study: Three-letter Words

Many people are interested in finding word lists for the GRE or Graduate Record Exam. The GRE is an admissions requirement for graduate schools in the USA, in other English-speaking countries, and for English-taught graduate students and business students worldwide. In our series of GRE word lists, we'll give you lists of words that you can study and learn for the GRE. Our first GRE word list comprises 3-letter words. Double-click on the word to learn its meaning.

The GRE tests vocabulary because vocabulary correlates highly with intelligence. Assessing your vocabulary is a good way of assessing your suitability for college and graduate studies. A good vocabulary is particularly important for the GRE's verbal section, consisting of analogies, sentence completions, and reading comprehension passages.

The best GRE vocabulary word lists come with the popular vocabulary-learning software Ultimate Vocabulary. The GRE version of Ultimate Vocabulary is designed specifically to improve your GRE score.

Go to Ultimate Vocabulary for more information. Click "For GRE Exam" from the top menu.
