SSAT Upper Level Verbal Flashcards
If your child is between the 8th grade and 11th grade and is preparing to attend an independent school next year, they may be required to take the Upper Level SSAT. The Upper Level SSAT is a challenging multiple-choice test, and in order to be fully prepared, they will want to dedicate some study time to it. The test has a brief time limit considering the breadth of content, so it is important to ensure that your child is familiar with all of the material prior to taking the test. The Upper Level SSAT is divided into quantitative, verbal, and reading comprehension sections. Practice test-based studying is ideal for SSAT preparation, and Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offer comprehensive test practice that is unique and allows for independent study. The online Flashcards tool specifically designed for Upper Level SSAT Verbal review allows your child to focus on the concepts in which they may need improvement.
The Flashcards tool breaks down the Upper Level SSAT Verbal section into two main subjects: analogies and synonyms. Your child can select either of those subjects to find a variety of flashcards with sample questions. Additionally, there are subtopics in each of the subjects that allow your child to drill down even further with their Upper Level SSAT Verbal review. For instance, the subcategories in the analogies category include analogies determining meaning from prefixes, suffixes, and roots, analogies determining meaning from different types of relationships, and analogies determining the meaning or the part of speech from context. Within each of those subtopics, there are even more layers of content-specific subtopics from which your child can choose to create a customized study experience.
Once your child selects the category or subcategory, they will be presented with Upper Level SSAT Verbal sample questions. Each of the questions is in a multiple-choice format that simulates the actual test format. Once your child selects an answer, the flashcard flips and reveals the correct answer along with a detailed explanation for that answer. The flashcards are designed so that when your child returns to the flashcard for another practice round, the multiple-choice answers are automatically shuffled, avoiding useless memorization based on the order of the answers. Additionally, the selected Flashcard can easily be shared on a variety of social media platforms with one easy click.
Other free resources available through Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools include a Question of the Day, which gives your child a randomly selected Upper Level SSAT Verbal practice question each day. Learn by Concept is structured like a syllabus, so your child can select the concept or concepts they need to review, and the Practice Tests provide your child with both concept-specific and comprehensive practice tests. Your child can also create an account, which enables them to track their scores and create customized Practice Tests and Flashcards. All of these wonderful Learning Tools are available online and are designed for self-study, providing your child with the opportunity for a unique and efficient studying experience.
