501 Synonym & Antonym Questions

1. Introduction:

501 Synonym & Antonym Questions
Welcome  to  "501  Synonym  and  Antonym Questions" ! This book is designed to help you prepare
for the verbal sections of many assessment and entrance exams. By completing the exercises in this book you will also increase your vocabulary and re?ne your knowledge of words. Most standardized tests—including high school entrance exams, the  SAT,  civil  service  exams,  and  the  GRE—use  synonym  and antonym questions to test verbal skills. These questions ask test takers to identify the word that is most similar or dissimilar to another word, effectively testing their knowledge of two words.

The questions in this book, for the most part, are grouped into sections  of  questions  that  ask  you  to  select  a  word’s  synonym  and sections that ask you to select a word’s antonym. There are two sections  that  include  questions  asking  for  either  the  synonym  or  the antonym.

The questions increase in dif?culty as you move through the exercises of each chapter. Because this book is designed for many levels Introductionof test takers, you may ?nd that some of the more advanced questions are beyond your ability. If you are using this book to study for a high school entrance exam, you may get a number of questions that appear later in a section wrong. Don’t worry! If you are getting the earlier questions correct, you are probably in good shape for your test. However, if you are studying for a graduate level exam such as the GRE, the full range of questions presented is appropriate for your level. The questions in this book can help you prepare for your test in many ways. First, completing these practice exercises will make you familiar with the question format. They will also get you thinking of words in terms of other words with similar or opposite meanings. In the test-taking environment it can be dif?cult to switch gears from synonym questions to antonym questions; completing these exercises will make these mental gymnastics more comfortable.

Second, your performance on these questions will help you assess your vocabulary level. For example, a word may be familiar to you - you may have seen it in print and have a general sense of what it means—but when tested, you may discover that you do not know the word’s precise meaning. These exercises will help you pinpoint those familiar words for which you need to learn the exact de?nition. In addition, you will probably encounter words that are totally unfamiliar. By memorizing their de?nitions, you can add these words to your  vocabulary  and  call  upon  them  at  test  time  to  improve  your score.

Third,  many  of  the  questions  in  this  book,  and  on  assessment exams, test your ability to discern nuance of meaning. The question may ask you to identify the synonym for a secondary de?nition of a common word—for example, “inclination or natural ability’’ is a secondary de?nition of the word “bent.’’ Also, the direction for these exercises usually ask you to identify the word that is “most similar’’ or “most dissimilar’’ in meaning to the word in the question. This means that  you  may  be  asked  to  pick  between  degrees  of  meaning.  For example, “atrocious’’ means “utterly revolting’’; in this case, “revolting’’ would be a more accurate synonym than “unpleasant.’’ Each  question  is  fully  explained  at  the  end  of  the  chapter.  The answer keys give you not only the right answer but also the de?nitions of the word in the question and the correct answer. Use your performance to create a study guide. For example, make a list of all the words that you missed and their de?nitions. Then study this list as a quick and concentrated method to improve your vocabulary. In some cases, you will also bene?t from looking up the de?nitions of the words that you selected incorrectly to ensure that you know the precise meaning of these words. Then add these words to your study list as well.

You have already taken an important step toward improving your vocabulary and your score. You have shown your commitment by purchasing this book. Now all you need to do is to complete each 35 to 40 question exercise, study the answers, and watch your vocabulary increase. You can even work in pencil and do the exercises again to reinforce what you have learned. Good luck!
