Vocabulary acquisition definitely helps students with the PSAT, the SAT, and other college examinations.
Utilizing Vocabulary.com and giving them weekly access to those SAT-type words means they’re going to do better on those kinds of tests.

The platform is wonderful in terms of the variety of language that’s there, and this is how students are assessed during testing — words are presented in a variety of different ways
— and Vocabuary.com gives them practice with those different ways of thinking about language.

Before Vocabulary.com, I would have my students make flashcards from vocabulary lists provided by any standard SAT study guide. For my students, it was not a particularly good way to learn vocabulary.
Pure memorization is hard work, and my students found it extremely boring.
