The scaling of this test is different, both tests are only an approximation though. I'm not sure if it really matters if I got 45000 or 45500, 45000 words is pretty darn smart.
The question arises not whether it is "better" but whether it is more realistic.

I think the first is more realistic. If you have only four meanings to choose from you can  sometimes find out the correct answer without knowing the word.

In the first test I got 5970 words, in the second 15000.

I agree, now that i've seen the second test. Multiple choices aren't always a good way to find out the number  of words you know.
Only 10 words too. and it asks you to take it again! for a higher score

I took the first again and didn't have exactly the same words, but my result remained almost the same.
I also took again the second and this time it says I knew 25000 words, whereas the first time it was only 15000, not really a constant result ;)

I got 15 000 too after getting 7 280 in the first one :D
(But I'm French, I'm excused :P)
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

I'm excused, too, because I've only had English at school for three years XD

Well I did the test again and I got 24400 words, higher than last time. Strange. I thought I was being more honest this time, selecting words that I actually knew a certain meaning of because the first time I chose some words I had a half-meaning of. I've gotten smarter!

I don't think the test at: http://dynamo.dictionary.com/ is very accurate, it doesn't seem that thorough. It rates me at knowing 45,523. The first test (from http://testyourvocab.com/) put it at 21,100.
