Learning etymological roots is a more efficient and productive way of increasing knowledge of English vocabulary. By learning the roots of longer words instead of memorizing their definitions, students are developing a method of word recognition that can help them decipher the meanings of unfamiliar words in any context, a skill that will help them not only on tests like the SAT but also into their college years.
