Dear moderators and members
i am glad that u share important word list we must have command on vocab but kindly do mention how to memorize all of them..
I am trying to learn them cuz they gonna help me in aptitude tests
looking forward for the positive reply
when we were kids , we always used to get home work as "use the following words in your own sentences" this strategy works wonderfully , use daily 10 to 5 words in your own sentences or make a small story using those words , it will not only help you to memories the vocabulary but enhance your writing skills too .. good luck
1. Firstly try to understand proper meaning of vocab through a dictionary.
2. Then look over suffix, prefix, noun, verb, syn, etc. It ll introduce other related vocabs too.
3. Prepare flash cards by your own. Write vocab and it's absolute meaning on other side. By preparing own flash cards, vocab ll be properly reflect through your mind.
4. Put the vocab in different sentences everytime that you never get confused about vocab whether it's in any form noun, verb, adverb etc.
Best of luck!!
