What made the experience of listening to GRE Vocabulary 3000: Official Test Prep the most enjoyable?
This audiobook was really convenient. I work full time and haven't had as much time as I would like to study. This worked out perfectly for me because I could listen to the book on the train to and from work. The two narrators also make it easier to stay interested and focused.
Which character – as performed by Jared Pike and Daniela Dilorio – was your favorite?
I think that having both voices is really good. They switch off which is nice because it helps you make sure you're not spacing out.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It would be really hard to listen to the whole thing in one sitting, and I would actually recommend listening to it a couple of time.
Any additional comments?
This was just a really helpful book.

What disappointed you about GRE Vocabulary 3000: Official Test Prep?
First, its nowhere near 3000 words of Prep. If you dont know the easy and moderate words you didn't pass elementary school. Of the 'hard' words maybe 1/3rd of them are good review for the test. The synonyms and antonyms are lazy, unhelpful, and often barely correct. The sentences are often just a rehash of the definition, and again, are often very lazy. Here are some examples:-missionary and enlist are considered hard words-"synonym: accept, antonym: reject"..wow thanks-"Lavage Sentence: He lavaged his clothes" ..lazy sentence that does not help define or teach the word and instead focuses on an old definition. Lavage means to medically wash a hollow organ. Its etymology includes the more basic definition of simply washing, but you're at a disadvantage if all you remember for the test is 'to wash'. The definition does state the word means 'to clean especially medically' but that is still lacking.
