    We reviewed previous JAMB English exams and came up with a list of some words that appear very frequently. Below are some words starting with the letter B that we recommend you have a solid understanding of:

    baffle
    barred

    No so common but recently seen (so worth an honorable mention) 'B' words:
    biennial
    blackmailed
    blamed
    boast
    blemish
    boisterous
    bombastic
    borne

    If you really want to demonstrate your understanding of these words, try using some in a sentence. Alternatively, if you see a word you are not sure of, ask the group and we will collectively try to improve our understanding
