They are mentioned on the official 2018 SAT study guide which means that there is a high chance that they will land on the exam somewhere! Words like Benevolent, Bolster, and bittersweet might mix other people up but if you are the type of person who knows how to properly prepare and study, then you should do just fine! The SAT is an exam that is given to students each and every year in order to help them enter into college with the proper scores! William Julius Wilson spoke about the nerve-racking exam by saying, "But the person who scored well on an SAT will not necessarily be the best doctor or the best lawyer or the best businessman. These tests do not measure character, leadership, creativity, perseverance." The test does NOT decide everything but it does decide a lot of things!
