About This Quiz

Think you have what it takes to crush SAT vocabulary? The SATs have struck fear into the hearts of American teenagers for generations. Every kid knows that their SAT score can change the course of their entire life. A high score can get you in at some of the most prestigious schools in the world, and a low score can knock you out of the running instantly. That's a lot of pressure, and a big reason to study and make sure you know your stuff. 

The SATs have gone through a few changes over the years. The test currently contains these sections: Reading, writing and language, calculator math, non-calculator math and an optional essay section. While the essay is optional, the reading and the writing and language sections are not. This means that having a good handle on SAT vocabulary is an absolute must if you want to nab those coveted high scores. The highest score a person can get on the modern SAT is 1600. The lowest is 400. The closer to 1600 a person can score, the better.  

If you are a savvy speaker and reader with a large vocabulary, put it to the test with this very verbose quiz!
