How is vocabulary tested on the new SAT?

I know the College Board is getting rid of sentence completion questions on the SAT, but I'm not sure exactly what that means for me. I don't have a great vocabulary, so I guess it's good news, but how will they test vocab now? Do I have to actually study definitions or is that a waste of time?
