The ISEE has a Verbal Reasoning section that is composed of two different kinds of questions:
Synonyms and Sentence Completions. Both kinds of questions test your vocabulary and reasoning ability.
Synonym questions focus on word recognition, since the correct answer choices are those that have the same meaning, or are closest in meaning, to the word in the question.
Synonyms also test your ability to reason, because you must choose the word that is most nearly the same in meaning to the word in the question from among four answer choices.
Sentence completion questions measure your ability to understand words and their function.
Correct answers are based on clues that appear in the context of the sentence.
In the Upper Level forms of the ISEE, the sentence completion answer choices are words or pairs of words that logically complete the meaning of the sentence as a whole.
You have 17.5 minutes to answer 35 questions, and under time pressure, it is all too common to see students fumbling about with their sentences & their vocabulary, losing precious time.
