The easy, convenient way to learn SAT words: Everyone who has faced the SAT questions knows the frustration of not having the right word immediately available when needed. Sometimes it's a matter of not being able to recall the right word; sometimes we never knew it. It is also frustrating to read a newspaper or homework assignment and run across words whose meanings elude us. Language, after all, is power. In this series of vocabulary lessons, the top 1,000 vocabulary words that appear on the SAT tests have been carefully chosen to be grouped in various categories. These words are also the most likely to appear on the SAT, ACT, GRE, and TOEFL. To create this list, we started with the words that give our users the most trouble and then ranked them by how frequently they appear on the SAT tests. If you only have little time to memorize the SAT words, this is the lesson you want to take. At least half of the words in the English language are derived from Greek and Latin roots. Knowing these roots helps us to grasp the meaning of words before we look them up in the dictionary. It also helps us to see how words are often arranged in families with similar characteristics. Audio Lessons that group words according to what they have in common—more in meaning than in spelling—are especially useful. All you have to do is to listen and understand how these words are put together to mean what they do.
