exact, precise or accurate?
Accurate can often be used before a noun in the same way as exact and precise .
上述的词用于连系动词后，尤其在否定句中，侧重点稍有不同。not very exact/precise指缺乏细节；not very accurate指出了细节，但细节有误；precise含明确、确切和准确之义；短语be precise about sth可用于人，指能准确说出某事；exact通常不这样用：
When the words are used after a linking verb, there is a slightly different emphasis, especially in negative statements. A description that is not very exact/precise lacks details; a description that is not very accurate gives details, but the details are wrong. Precise includes the idea of being clear and certain as well as correct and can be used to talk about people in the phrase be precise about sth . Exact is not usually used in this way.
[not before noun] ( BrE informal ) exactly right
