Ratings and Reviews
I can't believe there are only 2 reviews for this app
To preface my review, I'm not a teenager prepping for his SAT. I'm a grown man who, for the sake of grandiloquence (c wut I did there?), wants to strengthen my vocabulary.
I bought the SAT Hot Words book a long time ago and only made it through a few sections before getting bored with it.
I stumbled across the app recently and paid the $5 to unlock all the words and I have found this platform a much better learning tool than a book. Any time I have a few minutes to spare, I go through more flash cards and I'm learning at a pace much faster than I ever could have with the book. And the words are actually sticking. I've been trying to make a habit of using them in day to day conversation.
Another benefit of using this app over the others is the selection of words aren't as obscure as those I've seen in other apps. You can actually use a lot of them without sounding unnatural. Other apps try to teach you the entire dictionary with words you would never find necessary to use.
Vey useful app, but need to fix a bug...
The practice tests sometimes score record the answer incorrectly. Seems to happen on the 9th question when I mark it as correct, the app records it as incorrect.
I love it
It helped me a lot
