Strategy: Learn from word roots
Most SAT words are derived from either Latin or Greek. Learning just a few word roots allows you
to figure out the meanings of many unfamiliar words.
Activity: Greek lesson
Each word below can be broken into two Greek parts. Decode the meaning of these words using
the key at the bottom, then write their definitions. Be flexible with your definitions, because
sometimes the definitions of words do not match up exactly with their Latin parts. Once you have
memorized a word, check off its box
