Writing is an important part in SAT test. When writing essay, you have to use a decent vocabulary to express your idea correctly and exactly. Don't like words in reading materials, know them is enough. In writing test, if you are pursuing high score to apply good or top universities, you have to spell quick and right. Because there are lots of spelling-check software hosted in mainstream editors, and students are used to rely on computer to write homework, the spelling ability of students is actually down in recent decades.
