College Vocabulary Challenge

A Better Vocabulary Opens Doors to Your Future

One of the most important factors of success on the ACT, PSAT, or SAT is the ability to comprehend college-level vocabulary words. But the importance of a high-level vocabulary doesn’t stop with these exams.

English vocabulary level has been shown to be strongly related to educational success. In addition, it is related to the level of occupation attained. It is highly correlated with measures of reading ability and intelligence.
-Richard Bowker, Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation
