I think "vocabulary" and "word" are identical when refer to English learning, for example: "TOEFL vocabulary", "TOEFL words". Is it too much to say "TOEFL vocabulary words"?

I suppose "learn English vocabulary" is the same as "learn English words" and that both are the same as "learn English vocabulary words". I see all three phrases used on the internet. For example:

Of course the internet has its own register and I think when we speak we would normally choose a shorter phrase: "English vocabulary" or "English words" but usually not "English vocabulary words".Access English vocabulary words derived from Latin and Greek ...... An abundance of Vocabulary Word Sites to choose from. ... English vocabulary words from Latin Greek etymologies and their prefixes and roots.
