The highly efficient GRE Anki deck

73.77MB. 568 audio & 563 images. Updated 2018-12-25.

This item is large, and may take some time to download.


This is a flashcard deck to learn the most 500 frequent words on the GRE test. Each card has a front side and a back side. The front side has an empty box, a short description of the word and its image. Your job is to do two things: (1) try your best to write the word into the box, and (2) pronounce it. After that, hit Enter. The card will flip to the back side, and the correct word will appear. The pronunciation will be spoken and your spelling is checked, so that you can learn from your wrongs. The full definition of the word will refine your understanding of the word, so you can use it correctly in writing. After that, clicking the bottom buttons to evaluate the strength of your memory so that Anki can predict when you are about to forget it. If you think an image is meaningless for you and want to change it, click on it to visit Google Images, find your preferred one, copy it, return to Anki and click Edit, then paste it in the Image field. Another deck of mine: 40 Independent Speaking Questions for TOEFL Test Tips: These words are meant to express complicated, entangled ideas in a clear, succinct manner. There is no way to remember all of them of course, but you don't need to be an English native speaker, you just need to be a new you. Many of those words require you to have at least a sorrow experience in your life. Half of them are there so that you can have empathy for others, another half of them help you not getting lost into it. Quotes: You can read more about the motivation behind this deck in my website. My related research is about making concrete analogies and big pictures. If you love this deck you will love it too.

You're often given the word in the definition making it a useless exercise.
Comment from author
Yes, this is what I'm aware of; sorry for your inconvenience. I'll update it if I have time.

Amaaazing way to visualize vocab! It doesn't feel like studying at all, in fact this has become a mind cooler during work, but I noticed that when I see a less familiar word on paper I can recall the image immediately. Some of the pictures are truly priceless :D Fabulous job thank you <3

Great deck with a large deal of detail.

Variations of words should not be in the description

Putting the variation of the word, like the adjective term, in the description makes it useless to test oneself with the flashcards, since the term gives away the answer. Example, the Short description of oblique is:

indirect; slanting (deviating from the perpendicular or from a straight line); Ex. oblique reference

By writing "Ex. oblique reference: the answer is given before you flip the card.

In reverse order but has audio and okay pictures.

This is slightly annoying to learn from as you are given a definition and have to think of the word. The problem is there are usually a lot of words you could give that satisfy the definition. Worse still, on some cards all you are given is a picture and no definition.

On the flipside the photos are usually helpful, and the audio might help depending on how you like to learn.

The pictures help! Thanks for sharing

love the pic of "L" from deathnote
re "No usage examples": agreed. Seems like the author added usage examples to some cards in the "Short description" section
re "Isn't this backwarks [ sic ]": you can switch it up with "Edit" > "Cards..."
