Improving Spanish Vocabulary for Court Interpreter Test (California)

I have been studying for the California Court Interpreter exam and feel very confident except for one section that is killing me: the part that tests Spanish vocabulary (antonyms and synonyms). I have no problem with reading comprehension, grammar, and translation, but I just think these vocabulary words they test are extremely rare, and I'm looking for the fastest way to increase my "SAT vocabulary" for Spanish (I think the English words are ridiculously rare too, but as an English professor, I do know them).
Anyway, my question is if people have suggestions (other than read as broadly and as much as possible, which I certainly do) of vocabulary expansion in Spanish. The market is flooded with drills and flashcards for English vocabulary, but when I google for Spanish vocabulary lists I only get very basic ones. Anyone know products, websites, etc., for building "college-level" vocabulary in Spanish? Where do they pull those words from for the exam anyhow?
