A: Keywords exercise & test

Vocabulary is one of the most important things to learn in order to prepare for the SAT vocabulary section. Learning words related to specific topics can help you study for this part of the exam. For example, if you wanted to study for the topic “technology,” you could search Google for the term “technology keywords.”

Our free SAT study guide has a great list of keywords that relate to technology, business, education, history, social sciences, and other topics. These keywords can be a great resource if you’re studying for this section of the exam. Grab our guide here.

For the next step in your studies, you can take a practice quiz using these keywords. You can also try our full-length practice tests for the SAT exam.

B: Guide to studying for Vocabulary

This comprehensive guide offers some ideas about how to maximize your time when studying for vocabulary words. Our goal is to help you understand what it means to do a vocabulary study session and then give you helpful tips to make it work well for you.

There are four steps involved in a successful vocabulary study session:

1) Find a good study space

2) Prepare for studying

3) Study key vocabulary words from your list

4) Organize your flashcards

1. Find a good study space: In order to study effectively, you need a quiet place where you can focus on studying vocabulary words. Avoid places like the kitchen table as they are usually too noisy (your family might be watching TV or arguing). Also avoid public spaces like coffee shops or libraries. A good study space should ideally be somewhere where you can relax and feel comfortable while you are doing your studying. Find an area where you won’t be distracted by noise or activity; this will help keep your concentration focused on studying. Find a place where you can study without distraction. If you don’t have a good place to study at home, consider going to a library or coffee shop where there may be fewer distractions than at home. If you are creative, you may even consider studying in a park! Just remember not to disturb others while studying so that they don’t get upset with your noise or activity. If you are feeling distracted or nervous while studying, take a break and go do something else for awhile before returning to your studies. Studying with other people can be helpful if they are also trying to study vocabulary words, but only if the other people aren’t distracting you by talking, texting, answering cell phone calls or playing loud music while you are trying to study. 2. Prepare for studying: Make sure that you have everything ready before starting your study session. If possible, print out all of your vocabulary word lists so that they are accessible during your session. If printing isn’t possible, make sure that all of the lists are open in your computer so that you can view them easily without having to go back and forth between different websites or documents during your session. 3. Study key vocabulary words from your list: The goal of this step is to study words that are important to know for the upcoming test. Check out this article on taking vocabulary tests for some helpful hints about how to choose which words to study for this test. 4. Organize your flashcards: Once you have studied all of the vocabulary words that you want to review, the next step is to organize them into flashcards so that they are simple and easy to access during your test preparation sessions. Check out this article on how to make flashcards in case you are unfamiliar with this process. 5. Review flashcards during idle moments: When you have extra time between activities or before bedtime, review some of your flashcards in order to refresh yourself on the words that you have already learned. 6. Test yourself on flashcard words: The final step in this process is to use flashcards in order to test yourself on the words that you have studied in previous sessions. This will help you see how much progress you have made and ensure that you haven’t forgotten anything important before taking the official test. 7. Study harder words again: Some students find that they forget some of the harder vocabulary words after having studied them only once (this happens especially with easier words like “practice”). If this happens to you, don’t worry; simply study these harder words again later in your studies until they stick in your memory better. 8. Build up your word knowledge: Over time, and with lots of practice, your word knowledge will increase and you will be able to recognize more and more of these hard vocabulary words on the actual SAT exam. This means that you will get better scores on each test that you take and that it will be easier and easier for you to get good scores on future exams! 9. Keep working on improving! Even after many years of vocabulary study, it is possible that there will always be some new words that we haven’t encountered before or heard spoken out loud before we encounter them on the SAT exam. This makes it important for us to stay on top of our vocabulary studies and continue learning new and difficult words so that we will be ready when we encounter them on the test. 10. Take advantage of opportunities to hear new words! We should pay attention when we hear new vocabulary words spoken out loud because this gives us a chance to learn these new words from context clues rather than from reading definitions in a dictionary or from hearing our teachers say definitions in class! 11. Consider taking a course outside of school: In addition to studying at home using online resources, there is another option available for SAT vocabulary study: taking a course outside of school taught by a professional teacher who can help us learn new words and practice using them effectively in sentences and situations similar to those encountered on the actual exam. 12. Consider joining a student club or organization: Another option would be joining a club or society at school during our high school years, such as a science club or an art club, which offers an opportunity for language practice beyond what we experience in school or at home in our private lives. 13. Read books outside of school: In addition to reading books related to schoolwork, we should also read books outside of school since this offers further practice with SAT vocabulary words plus offers an opportunity for engaging in activities outside of school with friends and family members who can help us learn new words even more effectively! 14. Write down new vocabulary words in a notebook: On a weekly basis, we should write down new vocabulary words that we come across when reading books, magazines or newspapers; when watching TV shows, movies or documentaries; when listening to music; when watching TV commercials; or when overhearing conversations with friends or family members (these tend to happen most often when we least expect it!). 15. Use apps like Vocab Insights: There is now an app called Vocab Insights which helps us learn new vocab terms by showing us examples of usage and providing explanations about their meaning and context within our everyday lives (https://www.vocabinsightsapp.com/). This app has saved me hours of time and helps me learn new vocab terms almost effortlessly when I am waiting in line at Starbucks with my laptop! 16. Go back over vocab terms when exam is done: After finishing my SAT exam I try to go back over my answers once again with the goal of learning any new vocab terms that I encountered during my latest exam (usually I do this immediately after completing the exam). 17. Keep practicing with newly-learned vocab terms: Having studied new vocab terms does not mean that we should stop learning them! We should continue studying these new terms over time so that we will be ready when we see them again in future exams and in life outside of school (where they will likely show up sooner or later). 18. Get enough sleep every day: Getting enough sleep every night is really important for our brain function because it helps us remain alert throughout the day and helps us remember things more effectively! 19. Go on field trips outside of school: In addition to going on field trips with our entire class at school during our high school years, we should also go on field trips alone or with friends outside of school since these field trips offer wonderful chances for extra vocabulary practice through context clues and through talking with other people about what we see while we are away from school! 20.
