SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I have always been mediocre in essay writing - never excellent. Some students would brag that they would write some bullshi* essay but get fantastic scores (MCAT,SAT,etc..) just by using long and complicated wording to make it look smart/professional. I am just interested in knowing what these words are, and if there is a list anywhere? I need to increase my vocabulary to use such words in essays rather than stick to plain wording...maybe they are right.
