(This should probably be in Homework Help . . . ?)

Although elementary, I can honestly tell you that the basic flashcard works perfectly. Easy to make, simple to do.
Ingraining new vocabulary is also easier if you apply the words more often. The more you say it in correct context, the better you will be at knowing it overall.

Oh, oh!
This, too!

It helps a lot of you can relate it to something else you know. I do this a lot when I try to learn Spanish. I make cute little pictures with the accents and letters to help me remember where I need to accent and the different conjugations and such.

break down the word and try to relate the parts to something then putting it together. the more silly/retarded it is the better, cuz you tend to remember weird things better.

Brute force: repeatedly read the list until such a time that you are able to recite it in its entirety even without reading it. (e.g. study in the morning, go to school, come home and recite it.) When you can do that, you win. No exceptions. (Takes a lot of time, though.)

Or write an (or as many as you want/need) essay using every single vocab word correctly.

I find things I don't want to do makes me remember better.

Get a paper and memorize each word one by one like this:

Prunes
Crud
Whatever
etc.

Read the first three, then read it aloud.
Then read the next three with the first three, then read it aloud too.
Do it little by little, don't be pressured.

If you fail to memorize, do what I do:
Scream and flail your arms around.

When I was young, I read the dictionary like a book. "Interesting" terms just stick to my head.

Read articles and e-books with long words and than incorporate it into forum posts or daily conversation. Or summon words out of my subconsciousness and look them up online.

^This was what I did, too. But I think the best way would be to apply the word into context in a few sentences. That way you'll understand the word and it'll commit to memory better, rather than just rote memorization.
