Ace Standardized Tests and Get Ahead in Life with Proper Vocabulary Test Prep

Like it or not, standardized tests dictate a lot of our opportunities in life. They are required for entrance to every degree program, and even for some certificate programs.

That alone is a compelling reason to maintain a high standard of vocab skills. Add in the fact that a strong vocabulary sets you up for life, affording you higher standing in workplace environments and job interviews, and your lexicon becomes even more critical.
Nevertheless, success begins with doing well on your standardized tests, whether you’re currently in high school prepping for the SAT or ACT, or are considering a graduate degree and hunkering down with GRE, GMAT or LSAT test materials. In addition to have strong reading comprehension and writing skills (which themselves depend on a robust vocabulary), a firm grasp of the English language is critical for each of these tests.

There Is No Reading Comprehension Without Vocab

Reading comprehension and knowledge of words are inextricably linked. After all, if you don’t know a word (or many), you won’t be able to make sense of the text in front of you. Even if you can parse a word or two from context, you quickly lose that ability once the ratio of unknown/known words gets too high.

If, on the other hand, you have a solid understanding of vocabulary, your reading comprehension skills skyrocket. This understanding must be broad and deep, meaning you both know a lot of words and know each word well.
Vocabulary Zone helps you get there, teaching several hundred words that appear on standardized test reading comprehension sections. This prepares you for your entrance exams as well as the rigorous reading requirements of higher education once you get there.

A Strong Vocabulary: Fundamental to Your Writing Success

Writing is a very important skill for all standardized tests, some more than others. While common perception holds that the SAT writing section doesn’t matter, on the grounds that it is not wrapped into your overall score, that’s not true. More and more colleges and universities are looking at this stat in making their decision between two otherwise equal candidates.

The same goes for the ACT writing section – and guess what, both tests use your word choice and selection when determining your score, meaning your vocabulary will be a deciding factor in how well you do on both writing sections.
The GRE also counts the writing section in its scoring … usually. The GRE has five separate sections, one of which is writing. It chooses one of those sections to be score-free (using it instead as an experimental baseline for their own research), but you don’t know which section that is. Therefore, the writing section has an 80 percent (4/5) chance of being scored. On the other hand, while the GMAT writing section is not figured into your total score, schools can still see it – making it important you do well. Ditto the LSAT.
Moreover, if you’re not a good writer, you’re less likely to be a good reader, researcher, note-taker and speaker. These all factor into higher education and career as well as testing.
The takeaway? Honing your writing skills will support you both on test day and beyond – and Vocabulary Zone will help you get there. What separates Vocabulary Zone from most vocabulary test prep programs is we go beyond improving just your passive vocabulary. Where other programs focus on rote memorization, we help you build your active vocabulary (words you actually use when speaking and writing) by teaching complete word mastery.

ACT Prep with Vocabulary Zone

Beware: The ACT Still Relies Heavily on Vocabulary

Some students also mistakenly believe that the ACT does not test vocabulary, but that’s not true. While it doesn’t do it as straightforwardly as the SAT (i.e. matching definitions with words), it still tests vocabulary. However, the ACT focuses much more on context, and on the student’s ability to use that word in a sentence themselves.

If anything, this makes studying with a program like Vocabulary Zone even more crucial for the ACT.
For another, you’ll simply do better in college if you can engage more readily with your reading and writing materials. Take a look at our College and Grad-School Prep page to learn about all the ways Vocabulary Zone will help ensure you are successful in your higher education pursuits on day one.
