 3500 ACT Vocabulary
1   Overview:
When high school students prepare for an ACT exam, many tasks are on their list. Reviewing and enhancing 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 seriously build a strong ACT vocabulary.

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 the ACT exam; it encloses words that probably will occur or once occurred on ACT papers, whose 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 on reading tests only when having a solid ACT vocabulary. Compared with other test sections, like writing, the 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, which can cover the core requirements in preparing for the exam. 12th-grade students should schedule 3 to 6 months to master the words. Given the reading test, students had better learn or understand all vocabulary words; some students also pick up some words to exercise spelling and prepare for writing tests.

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

ACT vocabulary plays a crucial role in your ACT final score. ACT Official Website will give you authoritative information to work out a reasonable ACT vocabulary building plan.

2   Alternative vocabularies:
Test takers have various requirements on vocabulary building; it's impossible to handle them with one ACT words list. Is there any alternative ACT vocabulary to choose? Yes, you can get various ACT vocabularies from this or other websites. Besides, vocabularies for the SAT exam or high school study are possibly good options.

We think '3500 ACT Vocabulary' is the first choice for most students. You may find some others as a supplement for some special purposes.
