1. Don't Download Existing PDF
PDF is an amazing file format: easy to read and print at lots of devices. When building SAT vocabulary, some students used to print new words in paper in order to bring and note anywhere. This is why they are always trying to get or download a copy of SAT vocabulary in PDF format.
Download a SAT vocabulary PDF isn't difficult, but you hardly find out an existing PDF that exactly meets with your circumstance in whole the whole Internet. The simple reason is that there is no two students who share the same vocabulary base.
You know this word, I know that one. Known or new word is relied on individual vocabulary level. Besides, the expectations for SAT score are usually different among test takers: some just want a passed score, whereas others are trying to do their best to apply for top universities. It's such a diversity requirement.
So even if someone contributed a SAT words PDF file and is available to download, it probably isn't what you are looking for. It's even useless because of too easy or too hard. Why? If you download a too easy list and work based on it, you just waste time to repeat lots of known words. If you download a too difficult list to study, it means you probably miss some words that have higher frequency in future test papers.
