Words for the wise

Often students complain about the words they have to learn for the SAT. I get that. Some words such as "ossified" and "treacly" are extremely obscure, but others such as "equivocal" or "ambivalent" they should know  and use. I point out to them that in life, you will be judged by how you speak and how you write. So, don't be myopic. Take some of the wordsyou've studied and put them to practical use.
