SAT Vocabulary Help

The vocabulary words on the SAT can be daunting (an SAT word meaning "discouraging through fear"). There is no way to know which words you will get, so the only way to study is to memorize as much vocabulary as you can. You can find plenty of vocabulary lists online, but here are a few you can use with mnemonic devices to help you memorize them. Use flash cards with the word on one side and the definition and mnemonic device on the other to test yourself.

n., a rant, or a v., to give a rant- Her anger with me caused her to attack me verbally.
