There are difficult words for us to define on the 2018 SAT exam like Adversarial, Allude, and Aesthetic. Which of those three words means "relating to beauty or refined taste" and which of these three words means "relating to the hostile opposition"? Knowing the definitions to complex words is helpful to people as they prepare to take a test as tough as the SAT! Words like Annihilate, Antipathy, and Apex are all good words to think about too! 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!
