A brief description of GRE and SAT:
The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for many graduate schools in the United States. GRE is comprised of a verbal section, a quantitative section and an analytical writing section. The verbal section consists of analogies, completions and reading comprehension passages. Multiple-choice response sections are graded on a scale of 200-800, in 10-point increments. This section primarily tests vocabulary .
The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly the Scholastic Aptitude Test or Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test for college admissions in the United States. SAT is comprised of a Critical reading section, a Mathematics section and a writing section. The Critical Reading (formerly Verbal) section of the SAT is made up of three scored sections: two 25-minute sections and one 20-minute section, with varying types of questions, including sentence completions and questions about short and long reading passages. Critical Reading sections normally begin with 5 to 8 sentence completion questions; the remainder of the questions are focused on the reading passages. This section generally tests the student's vocabulary.
A good vocabulary is vital to scoring well on these exams. The single most effective way to improve your verbal scores on the GRE and SAT is to learn the word lists. Good vocabulary skills will be useful in sentence completion, antonyms, analogies, and reading comprehension. If you know the definition of all the words in the answer choices, it makes the question a whole lot easier.
If you are comfortable with vocabulary it makes Antonym and Analogy sections easy, and this has a double benefit 1) You answer these questions correctly 2) If you know the word you will usually be able to answer them right away, saving you precious time for the reading comprehension. and sentence completion questions.
You can use context to guess the definition of the word on Reading Comprehension and Sentence Correction, but the Antonym and Analogy sections usually require you know the many definitions of the word. In this section there is no context to make an "educated" guess.
