About This Quiz

The SAT is a standardized exam that is used for college admission in the U.S. The test was introduced in 1926 and has had many names including the Scholastic Aptitude Test, the SAT I: Reasoning Test and now, just the SAT. The test is now offered around the world and takes between three to four hours to complete. 

When most people think of the SAT, they think of the big words. Now the words aren't the most important part of the exam, but they can definitely bring your score up, which is why you need to spend some time learning them. But there are a few English experts who know what these impossible words mean. There are hundreds of words that may be covered, and we've chosen a few that'll challenge what you think you know about this language. Do you think you know the meanings of these SAT words?

These words start out at medium difficulty and only get harder from there. So if you're trying to prepare for your SAT, whether you want to find out if you've still got it, or if you want to prove something to somebody, then you've come to the right place. So, let's get started to see whether you can call yourself an English expert or not.
