We would like to promulgate (v. state or announce) that we have fastidiously (adv. given careful attention to detail) culled (v. selected from a group) the top 500 vocabulary words from the multitude of lists on the net and from other sources for SAT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT tests. By the way, we found quite a few incorrect definitions on some of the lists out there. So we’d like to impute (v. attribute or credit to) WordNet, an open source dictionary project, which provides all of our definitions.
You can find the vocabulary practice tests by selecting Vocabulary on the home page category list. There are 5 tests of 100 words each. The Socrato 100 contains the most common vocabulary words. The Socrato 400 contains the next 400 most common words, and we broke the list down into four tests of 100 words each. Since you’re using Socrato, you can of course select whichever words you’d like to test with if you don’t like how we grouped them.
We’re also working to buttress (v. make stronger) our vocabulary offering with the Socrato 4000, which will be a monster list of common vocabulary we hope will keep you hone your skills. Look for it in the coming weeks.
Edit: Please attempt the Socrato 100 or Socrato 400 as they contain the frequently used vocabulary words in all the above mentioned exams.
also the GMAT.., Thank you!
Would you PLEASE send me the LSAT word list? Thank you!
I’d like to commend your way of using a better word throughout the post and then adding a meaning to it. It’s a great way to boost your reader’s vocabulary. Another way to build vocab is by reading topic specific vocabulary that contains lots of collocations. Which I found here: https://www.ieltspodcast.com/ielts-vocabulary/lexical-resource/
Using collocations in my writing and speaking helps me make my language sound more natural and fluent. Hope I get a high score in my exam soon!
