<p>@flokothetaco,
For the Verbal Section of the SSAT, I'd recommend the Princeton Review and Kaplan's. The Princeton Review has a great section on what words commonly appear on the SSAT, and Kaplan's has a great way of dealing with analogies.</p>

<p>Other than that, the best preparation you can do is reading. Idk how good your English is, but if you think you're up to it, you could try tackling some English books.</p>

<p>@ifax108 any book recommendations ? And I am using an app which seems pretty competent in teaching me new words ... i hope ill make it</p>

<p>@flakothetaco,
I'd recommend The Giver by Lois Lowry. It's not too hard, and it's really deep. It's probably one of my favorite books (I've read it 8 times). If you're interested in learning about American History, I'd recommend as a starting point Don't Know Much About History by Kenneth C. Davis. It's really readable, and quite interesting.</p>

<p>Try freerice.com :) it's free and fun.</p>

<p>Bump ... !!!</p>

<p>I just printed flashcards from Quizlet.</p>

<p>When I took the SSAT I had the Kaplan study guide. It's great to help you with strategies, but for the actual words, I seriously went through a dictionary studying the words that I don't commonly see or hear in everyday language and it actually helped.</p>
