2. Cách học từ SAT hiệu quả

#1: Tạo thẻ ghi nhớ

Một trong những cách học từ của SAT hiệu quả nhất là thông qua các tấm thẻ ghi nhớ. Những thứ này sẽ giúp bạn kiểm soát được những từ vựng mà bạn học và trộn lẫn theo thứ tự ngẫu nhiên để tránh tình trạng học nhớ theo thứ tự.

#2: Anki

Anki là phần mềm kỹ thuật lặp lại ngắt quãng giúp quản lý thẻ ghi nhớ và hiển thị chúng cho bạn trong khoảng thời gian tối ưu.

Anki quy định số lượng từ cần ôn luyện mỗi ngày để bạn biết được khi nào có thể dừng lại và bạn sẽ không phải thấy “tội lỗi” về điều đó. Cho những bạn chăm chỉ hơn, bạn có thể điều chỉnh chế độ cao hơn với nhiều lần ôn tập hơn trong 1 ngày. Phần mềm Anki bắt bạn phải thật thà với bản thân. 1 là bạn có thể ghi nhớ lại số từ hoặc là không. Bạn không thể nhìn ý nghĩa của từ trong danh sách từ vựng.

#3: Làm các bài thi của SAT

Vì đa số từ vựng trong các danh sách trên đều từ các bài thi của SAT, khi đã học các từ vựng, bạn có thể kiểm tra thử kiến thức của mình qua các bài thi thật. Điều này sẽ giúp bạn thật sự biết bạn có hiểu nghĩa của các từ và biết bạn sẽ trả lời đúng các câu hỏi ngữ cảnh.
