This guide concentrates on familiarizing test-takers with Tier Two vocabulary words that students need to understand to perform well on the SAT™. While there is no certainty which words will appear on the SAT™, a familiarity with these words will help a student on the test by allowing him or her to read more fluidly and accurately. Some of these words also apply to the math section. Each word is defined in simple rather than complicated terms so that most students can understand it, and, as most of the words on the new SAT™ must be defined in context, the word is also shown in the context of a sentence or short passage. While this is not the only book that students need to prepare for the new SAT™, it will help them decode the vocabulary on the test so that they can understand and answer the questions.
