When studying words, it is important to learn them in a context, rather than individually. Grouping vocabulary words is a good strategy for this. Try to take a group of words that all have a similar meaning or tone and study them together. If you study a group of words that all mean “good,” and a group of words that all mean “bad,” you can learn more words and understand a great deal of synonyms and antonyms, which is crucial for all aspects of the verbal section.

Please note that the suggested words listed above are on the more difficult end. If you have a younger child, it may be best to put the word “good” into thesaurus.com and see which words you don’t know, and talk to a parent or tutor to see which of these words are best for you to learn. No matter what grade level, it is better to learn words in a group or some context, rather than individually.
