I hold a degree in English and even I am shocked at some of the word choice on the LSAT.

make a word list because they use many of the same words over and over... like eschew.

Yeah!  I know what you mean.  I hate that too.  Luckily theres usually at most 1 question I get wrong per test b/c of the vocabulary.  When I am clueless I usually just try to use context to make an educated guess about what the word means.  But I totally feel your frustration. 

So what's the point of the strange words?  I think its just one way for them to differentiate between someone with a 180 and someone with a 179.

Unknown words?  Like the correct spelling of "friends"?
