Vocab Videos Holiday Offer: Learn SAT Vocabulary at a Discount!

Seasons greetings from Vocab Videos! The Vocab Videos team is getting in the holiday spirit by offering everyone  a special gift: 25% OFF ALL STUDENT AND EDUCATOR SUBSCRIPTIONS!

Reading comprehension is absolutely essential to success on standardized tests like the SAT, ACT, GRE, ISEE, SSAT, and TOEFL. A thorough understanding of word meanings enables a person to better comprehend a text containing those words. Students with greater word knowledgehave higher comprehension levels, and thus tend to perform significantly better on high-stakes standardized tests.

But remember, a good vocabulary is the gift that keeps on giving, and will help you long after the SAT and ACT.  An increased vocabulary improves overall literacy making you a better reader, writer and interpreter of information.

Vocab Videos provides an accessible vocabulary system for students and educators replete with engaging vocabulary video content and valuable review tools. The combination works to create an effective vocabulary learning solution. We hope that you’ll take advantage of our special holiday offer, and give Vocab Videos a try!
