You may see an ACT vocabulary list somewhere, but official ACT vocabulary doesn't exist.

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.

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.
