Hello,
I heard for SAT you have to memorize a bunch list of words. Where can I get the common sat words or anybody has the list?
Besides memorising words, what other techniques that you guys did for the SAT?

Tq

Haha, you can purchase the list if you want or search for them online. But, you will recognized some words just by doing the questions. Due to our given short period of time, there is no better way but to memorize. If you have time, you can used them daily into your life as part of your daily vocabulary. Perhaps, they could also be part of your unused vocabs. You understand their meaning but you hardly use them.

Most of them are not reliable at all. It is better to create your own list from your experience. However, I found a book by Princeton Review which provide a comprehensive list of such words.
