Larry Mills has studied the SAT for over 41 years. He has developed a vocabulary list from tests that he has reviewed. On this list, you will find the word, how many times he has seen it on SAT's over the years, and how many times the word was used correctly. He also gives you the definition. If the number of times the word appears is relatively high, we would suggest that you know the definition of that word. Reviewing this list will help you in your preparation for the SAT.
