Did GRE Vocabulary AudioLearn: AudioLearn Test Prep Series inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
It will really help if this audio book comes with a PDF of words because some words are spelt incorrectly and some definitions aren't correct due to rough editing.
e.g. extemporize was defined incorrectly, the book reads - 'to speak with preparation' whereas the true correct definition is 'to speak without preparation'.
There are more misspelt words, but I won't list them all.

Can't give this a great review but it was helpful
I have to say that this book was useful in my study fro the GRE. I must have listened to it 15 times (at 3x speed, which is pretty easy to do since normal speed is pretty slow).
There are a couple things that bothered me quite a bit:
1 - Pronunciation, a few words probably at least 10-15 (out of 650 or so) to my ear were mis-pronounced during recording. I understand that these are not the easiest words to pronounce but if you are recording a book you should probably make sure you are pronouncing the words properly. Two specific examples that were driving me crazy:
Facetious was pronounced Facetous, it took me a while to figure that out
Exacerbate was pronounced Exasperate.... that one really got me
There were plenty of others (and possibly some I didn't catch)
2 - Sloppy Production - at least one word and possible more were repeated, i presume this was due to sloppy editing. Also, there were some spelling sections that I believe were skipping some letters (again some kind of recording/editing issue?).
I could probably go on a bit longer. However the bottom line is that I thought this was a valuable book. It did help me with studying. I just wish they could take a little more pride in their product and look more and some of the details.
