Unfortunately, most students don't have the wealth of words or the volume of vocabulary that enable them to get top scores on the SAT I (the test that most people call "the SAT").

You may already know half of the words here or you may only know a few. Regardless of how strong or weak your vocabulary currently is, SAT Vocabulary For Dummies will help you build your vocabulary and boost your test scores.SAT Vocabulary For Dummies focuses exclusively on the vocabulary you need to know to get a good verbal score on the SAT.
