Verbal Skills   Analogies, Sentence Completion, Critical Reading

  1. Verbal Skills  The critical reading sections on SAT are designed to test your ability to read and understand written English of the level you need to make the most of a university course. There are two types of questions:
  1. Sentence Completion
  2. Reading Comprehension
  3.  Using Synonyms and Antonyms  A synonym is a word that has a similar meaning to another word. For example, the words big, huge, and gigantic are synonyms for large. An antonym is a word that means the opposite, or nearly the opposite, of another word. For example, small, tiny, and minute are antonyms of large. Knowing synonyms and antonyms can give you options for expressing yourself.
