Gone are the days
of sentence completions and long gone are the days of syllogisms. Instead,
students are now asked to pick the best word out of a set of synonyms.
To that end, the
company Ivy Global has released two strong vocabulary resources at the links
- The first
begins with a brief analysis of roots and then compiles a list of 250 words at
SAT-level difficulty: https://downloads.ivyglobal.com/sat/practice/New_SAT_Vocabulary_List.pdf
- The second
groups 500 total words by categories, similar actually to how the
questions will treat synonyms--and although some words here exceed the likely
difficulty of the exam, studying within categories in a way that mirrors the
exam will prove useful: https://ivyglobal.ca/sat/Downloads/IvyGlobal-500_Most_Important_Words.pdf
Having acclimated to the new test for a couple years now, I can tell you both
are strong compilations.
