Daily Writing Tips Vocabulary Test 1
I am glad to finally release the first test on this blog, the DWT Vocabulary Test 1. The idea of creating tests and quizzes was bouncing in my head for some time already. Such resources add interactivity to the content, and they integrate perfectly with the topics we already cover routinely.
The vocabulary tests will be based on the “Word of the Day” category. Every 20 posts on that category a new test will be released. Feel free to post a comment below with your score.
We’ll also have spelling and grammar tests soon, so stay tuned!

That was fun! 20 out of 20. Wasn’t sure about moribund, but pedantic I knew 🙂
Great idea. I enjoyed the quiz.
FUN! I liked the word challenge this morning 🙂 got an 85%
the algorithm question got me hee
Pretty funny, Daniel – a misspelled word on a word test! Bwa-ha-ha-ha!
95% — algorithm got me, too…. 🙁
100%! Damn, so I am a boring person at parties. :-p
Fixed the typo, and I spent the whole morning working on it :).
Not too tricky–got them all correct.

I was thrilled to get 100%.
Thanks. Love the blog and I forward the posts to my brother.
Well regular readers should be able to score 100% easily, all the words were already covered on the blog :).
But I’ll keep that in mind for future ones.
90%. Not too bad for a non-native speaker (i.e. reader… I only rarely speak English)
80%… not bad 🙂
80% i was suprised i know so much!
90% wow, better than I expected.
is 85 per cent a half decent mark if English is my second language?
Question 4 can be figured out logically, which makes it easy, as it is the most complex word.
Question 17 get me.
I got 90% right. There’s some sort of error on the answers page. The last question reads, “What is the most popular browser currently?”
Oops, that is coming from an old test I had 🙂 .
got 85% neat test…really liked it 🙂
100%. Fantastic site and great quiz. I’ll be back for the next challenge!
I enjoyed the test – 100%
This is a great idea. Without rehearsing what we learn from time to time, it just doesn’t stick. 95% here.
I’m studying for the GRE right now, so this was perfect! Thanks for putting this up!

Love the idea – short, sweet and fun.
This is a Great Idea. I got 85%.
70% 🙁 That’s what I get for not reading DWT.
got 100% .. since Barron’s word lists were fresh in my head ..
I saw ombudsman linked on an earlier page, then came here and took this after thinking “oh, I’ll click that later.”
Knew I should’ve clicked on it earlier, hah. I’d’ve gotten 100% if I had! (Then again, I managed the English on the GRE just fine–it was the math that killed me.)
Got 60% hoping to score better next time. Very useful exercise.
