SAT Prep For College Admissions

Besides the college essay, the SAT is the other big unknown when it comes to college admissions. Most of your grades, extra curriculars, and even parts of your recommendations are beyond your control by the time your senior year rolls around. But the SAT is always there, able to be improved upon each time you sit down to take it.

The most intimidating part of the SAT that's got to be learned a bit too quickly for most people's tastes is the vocabulary. Words like hegemony, perquisite, arboreal... Any of these ring a bell? Not for us really. This blog post got spell checked about thirteen times already and we're only a paragraph and a half in. Paragraph and a half. Hey. Made a rhyme.

Vocab Videos is a site that can help get the vocab down very, very easily thanks to their humorous images of what can be tedious words. And the short (thirty second) scenes help make the words much more memorable.

Yes, we all like to complain about the SAT, but the reality is that it's here to stay, or at the very least, is here to stay in the college admissions game for as long as you are, so it's better to take the bull by the horns before those horns get turned on you. The SAT help at Vocab Videos is much more fun and entertaining than the rest of the test-taking process, and lucky for you it deals with the parts you like the least. So get over there and make it happen.
