But in reading something, I am reminded that there are sort of similar words between Russian and English. Has anyone come across a good list of those? These words, I think, would be easy to add to my vocab (hopefully they are useful ones). I came across a small list, just wondering if there was more. I don't necessary agree with the list below because some seem a little bit of a stretch. But it is an example of what I am trying to find. I searched for a few minutes. It wasn't like there a Top 1000 Russian words that sound like English words. Thanks.

Edit: This set is more what I was thinking of. Meaning I clearly know the word in English, but didn't know they used the same word in Russian. Basically, just knowing these are the Russian words, your vocab increased by 30-40 words or so without much effort (are they everyday useful? Maybe not). 100+ if the above ones are easily digestible for you. Any more you guys know off hand?

Таргет = target
Паб = pub
Тренинг = training
Пассворд = password

Маркетинг = marketing
Продюсер = producer
Менеджер = manager

Реэлтор = realtor
Провайдер = provider
Вирус = virus
Диск = disc
Веб-сайт = web-site
Веб-мастер = web-master

Браузер = browser
Ноутбук = notebook
Футбол = football

What you are referring to are cognates. There are way too many to list, and more Russian-English cognates are created every day. But here is a link for Quizlet to learn a few more:
