Do remember that the GMAT verbal doesn’t test your vocabulary strength in the same way a GRE exam does. The GMAT will require you to distinguish between grammatically correct language vs incorrect language. You will have to identify valid and faulty arguments, read extensive study material and extract only the relevant information. It will not ask you to memorize a couple of difficult words or ask you for the meaning for the same. Since majority of the individuals attempting the exam are non native speakers of English it is essential to prove that you are capable of comprehending the language well and to establish your verbal capabilities by performing well in this section of the exam.
