Learn SAT Vocabulary Words Every Day

It is nearly time to sit the SAT so you have your scores in time for your college application. You need to start practicing your SAT vocabulary words to achieve the SAT score you need. Spend at least the month before your SAT test date by learning new words and their meanings to help you earn a high score.

The best way to learn new words is to read them in context by reading the newspaper or the latest novel. When you are reading, keep the following in mind:

1. When you see an unfamiliar word, stop.

2. Write the word down.

3. Look the word up in the dictionary and write its definition down.

4. Remember what context this word was used in.

5. Keep reading and use this process for any words you do not understand.

As you read it will surprise you at how many words there are unfamiliar to you. Reading also helps you to prepare for the reading comprehension part of the SAT, which counts for a large part of your SAT scores.

Put a Plan in Place

Learning SAT vocabulary words in context is the best way to learn new words but it is not the fastest, especially if you do not have much time to read.

As part of your study for the SAT, plan out how to learn more SAT vocabulary words and set yourself out a weekly routine:

• Day 1 and 2 – Learn between 30 and 50 words each day.

• Day 3 – Take a break from learning new words and review the ones from the past few days.

• Day 4 and 5 – Learn between 30 and 50 words each day.

• Day 6 – Take a break from learning new words and review the ones from the past few days.

• Day 7 – Take the day off.

If you follow this routine for at least a few weeks before the SAT, you have a much better chance of remembering more SAT vocabulary words than reading them straight off a list.
