Go help the research, and see how many words you know.

^ You should be. That is incredibly impressive for a non-native speaker.

I scored 38,000.

I got 32,800.

Although I'm still crap at crosswords.

And basic maths apparently.

I scored 21,600.

Huh.

I got a meagre 20,400. Clearly I can forget any career that involves writing...

19,100...

I'm gonna go cry in the emo corner, now.

Ten ways to spoil dinner

I took the test again, got new words, and got a new score.

24,400.

I wonder if I keep taking this test, will I get some sort of happy medium? |D

24,500.

I scored 38,000.

As expected.

I got 32,800.

Wow, good job.

20,100.

Hm... that's pretty high for me. XD

Damn it. 16,000 words. Still. It takes time to learn more words. *shrug*

Awesome.

Edit:~ Oops. Typed an '8' instead of a '6'.

My score was 34 100

Pretty decent, I suppose.

I got 40,200.

Yeah, go books!

29,700!

( Though I'm not sure what the good of this is. Is it better to learn multiple languages to a basic level, or one to an expert level? )

I don't know... I looked at their chart for the distribution of education to vocabulary, and I'm a bit confused about it. Here I am, 17, in eleventh grade, and I have an estimated larger vocabulary than people who have gone to college and people well over twice my age.

I don't think I did it right, even though I knew almost all of the words they provided.

I had conflicting results, too. Because I didn't have my Verbal SAT score, I used my Critical Reading Score (480/800, which really says something about me), which (according to some of these graphs) shows that my score should have been about 10,000 words less than it actually is. That, and I have the vocabulary of a 35-year-old. Your score sounds more accurate, given how intelligent you are (or seem to be). Don't put it past yourself!

Maybe we should retake it and recalculate, like Ten had?

Averaging out your tries works out fine. I have 30,800 over three tries, which seems about right. 31,200 then 30,200 then 31,000. So I have the vocabulary of someone in their forties, about.

2/22/2012 #23

29,000 and new score of 31,000 is about 30,000?

I spose my SAT was just grossly inaccurate, then. D:

2/22/2012 #24
Howlitzer

SAT or V-SAT score?

I don't even remember mine, not like it ended up being of use anyways. :|

2/22/2012 #25

SAT Critical Reading. I don't recall ever taking a verbal, actually.

Took it today (after reading for a few hours, if that makes any difference?) and scored ~33,000.

I took it again and got 41,600 this time. Part of it is just luck of the draw with the words that you get.

I feel so average :(
