50 High frequency SAT words: Improve SAT vocabulary

The SAT exam does not test vocabulary directly. Should you make an effort to increase your vocabulary?

The SAT exam does not test vocabulary directly. Should you make an effort to increase your vocabulary? Definitely yes! Here's why-

-The SAT Reading and Writing passages have quite a few words that stump non-native English speakers. On SAT exam day, you cannot afford to panic or be surprised. Adding a few of these words will help you understand the passages better and address the questions correctly.

-In the SAT essay section, there are points for the quality of the vocabulary used. So, if you enhance the quality and variety of words you use in the essay, you will get a higher score.

Now that you know that having a good vocabulary will help you improve your SAT score, you may be wondering how to add words to your existing vocabulary. We at Jamboree want you to spend your SAT preparation time most efficiently. So, we have gone through the SAT pattern and previous year's SAT papers to compile a list of 50 high-frequency words that appeared most on the SAT exam.
