1   Overview:
When high school students prepare an ACT exam, so many tasks are on their list. Review and enhance ACT vocabulary is usually the hardest one. Here we help you master ACT words efficiently. As we know, ACT consists of multiple sections; three of them are actually to test English skills. Words are the essential elements of any language. If you want to succeed in ACT, you have to build a strong ACT vocabulary seriously.

You may see an ACT vocabulary list somewhere, but official ACT vocabulary doesn't exist. ACT words list is only a concept to refer a vocabulary related to ACT exam, it encloses words that probably occur or once occurred on ACT papers; its contents vary on different scenarios: the test takers' level and pursuit. This ACT words list matches the average 12th-grade students and concentrates on the requirement of its reading section.

Vocabulary is a critical asset in all reading tests. You have a chance to get a good score in reading test only when having strong ACT vocabulary. Compared with other test sections, like writing, reading test has the most robust vocabulary criteria. Namely, writing words are usually in reading vocabulary, but the reverse isn't true. So if you plan to choose one vocabulary to cover all test sections, this list is the right candidate.

3500 ACT Vocabulary is an all in one middle-level words list. On average, 12th-grade students should schedule 3 to 6 months to master the words. Given the reading test, students had better learn or understand all words of the vocabulary; meanwhile, some students also pick up some words to exercise spelling and prepare for writing test. For general ACT test-takers, these words can cover the core requirements in preparing the ACT exam.

ACT organizer insists that the test doesn't emphasize strong or large vocabulary; it seems to be true. However, it doesn't mean you have any chance to have a good score by bad vocabulary skill. Vocabulary is the foundation of any English test, and ACT has no exception. Want to improve your performance in ACT? This vocabulary will give you a hand.
