SAT Words Spelling Practice

1. Overview
Writing is an important module in SAT test. When writing essay, you have to use a decent vocabulary to express ideas correctly and precisely. In writing test, if you are pursuing high score, you have to spell words out rather than just know them as in reading.

Because there are lots of spelling-check software hosted in mainstream editors and students commonly rely on computer to write homework, the spelling ability is actually down in recent decades. However, you cannot use any auto spelling check/correct tool in SAT writing test, so when you prepare SAT writing words, you should master their spelling.

For 8 SAT word lists in this web site, we provides spelling online exercise for each word. These exercises are implemented to learn and use very easy. Although all SAT vocabulary support spelling exercise, we suggest you focus on words that are for writing test. It should be a relatively small vocabulary, because most SAT words are for reading and you don't need to spell them in test.

2. SAT Word Spelling Practice
At first, we recommend 100 Most Common SAT Vocabulary. This list is very short and its words are frequently used writing. So you had better can fully spell the list. You may have several hints, such as pronounce, definition, and example sentence, to spell words of the SAT list.
Another list is Difficult Words with Meaning and Sentence. It's a small and essential vocabulary for SAT writing test. Its spelling test includes pronounce, explanation, and sentence in hint cards.
If you pass the spelling test of previous 2 short SAT lists very easily, please try spelling practice for 300 Common SAT Words, this is a relative difficult word list. In fact, you don't need to spell all of them, because these words are common in test but not in daily. So for many students half or more of the vocabulary are new words. If your score is more than 60%, you should have full confidence in writing test. Below are links of first 2 groups.
