Roots, Suffixes, and Prefixes CSS and PMS Aspirants Must Learn

Roots, Suffixes, and Prefixes CSS and PMS Aspirants Must Learn

I have written all the crucial roots, suffixes, and prefixes that CSS and PMS aspirants must learn to score up to 17 to 18 in synonyms and antonyms.

Many CSS and PMS aspirants always become confused when preparing for Synonyms, and Antonyms asked in the CSS or PMS Precis paper. Therefore, many aspirants start buying vocabulary books and GRE, GMAT, or GAT vocabulary lists to cram them. However, no matter what number they cram, the paper setter always includes words aspirants cannot even think of.

There are millions of English vocabulary words, and hundreds are added to the dictionary every year. Memorizing and cramming them all is always seen as overwhelming. But if you try to get yourself familiarised with the common prefixes and suffixes used in the English language, you will be able to understand a lot more words. Moreover, if you follow the probability rule I have always taught my students, you can easily score up to 15 out of 20 in the section on synonyms and antonyms. Thus, mastering prefixes, suffixes, and word roots can significantly bump up your verbal score. Although prefixes and suffixes abound, the ones discussed here are the most common. Take the time to memorize them.

Root Words, Suffixes, and Prefixes: How to Study Them

Memorising root words, prefixes, and suffixes have always been helpful for a competitive aspirant. There’s always some benefit in devoting a small amount of vocabulary studying time to learning some of the most significant roots, prefixes, and suffixes. They can provide some clues if you end up with unfamiliar words on CSS and PMS exam day and will make any guessing you do a little more educated. Moreover, if you learn some root words naturally, you expand your vocabulary. As you grow the pool of words you know, you will start to notice patterns of words that sound alike (or have parts that sound alike) and similar meanings. For example, you may see that pathos, empathy, antipathy, and apathetic all have to do with emotions and affect. This is because they all share the Greek root “path,” meaning feeling or emotion.

Tip to Memorize Them All

I have written all the essential roots, suffixes, and prefixes that can help you memorize at least 50,000 plus vocabulary words if you try to remember the below list. But, of course, the best way to memorize them is to learn 3 to 4 roots, suffixes, or prefixes daily.
