At the end of each chapter, you will find such a table here, which summarizes all the chapter's new words. By now, you are probably bored already by repeating the same words and phrases over and over again. Our suggestion is to skim over the list and recheck, whether you really know all the words listed. Sometimes, things slip through even the tightest safety netting.
