40,100 This is actually slightly lower than the last time I took this test, so it tells me I may not have been entirely honest about a word or two that time. I believe the previous time I may have ticked off a couple words that I had never heard of, but could confidently and accurately guess the meaning of due to my knowledge of Greek and Latin. But that is not what the test is asking you to do! Now my score is high because I've been studying English/Literature for years; it comes with the territory. I've made an active effort to learn obscure words and expand my vocabulary.
