I took the SAT's in December..while studying for the verbal section i went crazy(sort of)trying to look for vocab lists of the slightly tougher words(the ones that come towards the end of each section).So I ended up making my own list from various prep books and the net and stuff.I was just wondering if anyone thinks it would help them too coz I know I'd have been better off if I'd had the list in the first place.I'd have to type it out and everything..which might take a while coz theres almost 500 words on the list but I thought it was helpful, so incase anyone's interested let me know.

|By Nocalguy (Nocalguy) on Friday, April 11, 2003 - 10:23 pm: Edit|
Maybe it's just me, but I have found studying vocab. to be unhelpful due to the number of words in the English Language. You'd be much better off studying the roots so that you can make educated guesses on the SAT's. Studying those "common words" from those SAT prep. books (the ones that they say have a higher chance of showing up) might help too.
