How To Build Vocabulary
We often see many students attempt to learn thousands of vocabulary words right before their SAT. This is not an effective approach. Our highest score achievers start developing their skills early. The most effective approach is to simply read books. You can find our list of suggested books on our Need To Read Book List.
Students can also memorize the 100 most common SAT words. It is also important to earn the parts of a word (root/prefix/suffix), which allows students to determine the meanings of unfamiliar words. You can access our Free SAT Vocabulary list and root/prefix/suffix by joining our Quizlet SAT Quick Study class now. Quzlet is a flashcard learning tool that is free for students to use.
Beyond reading, students can also build vocabulary by taking advantage of several great books that are available.
Wordly Wise is a wonderful vocabulary building program for students of all ages. (Prosper's Founder, Stacy Bennett, even used this program as a child!)
The books coincide with the students grade level, but do not hesitate to work ahead for an additional challenge!
