The College Board has announced that the SAT will be redesigned and launched as a new test in the spring of 2016. This is not news to us at IES. There have been rumors in the industry this was bound to happen sooner or later. As such, we have been working very hard in designing materials and courses to help you prepare for this new test.
One of the most signifigant changes will be the type of vocabulary tested on the SAT. They will be doing away with outdated words that are seen as no longer relevant in college courses. Instead, the SAT will be testing words that are more in line with contemporary college vocabulary. These words have been carefully selected by IES through six months of research and are now available as part of our New SAT Vocab course.
