SAT Words Spelling Practice

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

Because many spelling-check features host in mainstream editors and students commonly rely on computers to write homework, the spelling ability is actually down in recent decades. However, you cannot use any auto spelling check/correct tool in the SAT writing test, so when you prepare SAT writing words, you should master their spelling.

For all 3 SAT word lists on this website, we provide spelling online exercises for each word. These exercises are implemented to learn and use very easily. Although all SAT vocabulary support spelling exercises, we suggest you focus on words that are for writing tests. It should be a relatively small vocabulary because most SAT words are for reading, and you don't need to spell them in the exam.

2. SAT Vocabulary Spelling Practice
At first, we recommend Hard SAT Word List; this is a relatively difficult word list. You don't need to spell all of them because these words are common in tests but not 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 the writing test.

Hard SAT Word List has 500 difficult SAT words. You may challenge it if your vocabulary skill is solid. Its spelling exercise shows you pronounce and definition, and expects your filling in by a right WORD. Because this list is quite hard, do your best and leave blank for unknown words. Below are links to the first two groups.
A worksheet of SAT spelling, an interactive web page, provides ten random words from a selected group. It can also present all words of a group by alphabet order. You can choose the mode by buttons on the web page end.

Below are all links to SAT vocabulary spelling sheet based on 3 SAT vocabularies; each group has a separate link to enter its spelling sheet.
