Who makes the flashcards?
The entire GRE wordlist is selected and defined with usage examples by Magoosh’s expert GRE tutor, Chris Lele. He has been teaching the GRE for more than 10 years, runs a popular vocabulary series on YouTube and he’s also written an eBook on vocabulary. He is nigh unbeatable in Scrabble, or any other word game for that matter.

How well will I learn the words?
Academic research has found that memories are formed by repeated exposure to new information, so Magoosh’s flashcard app uses a spaced repetition system. Words you are learning will reappear frequently (occurring less frequently the better you know them) and words you already know won’t be repeated. The GRE word list is culled to only 250 so that you focus on only the most important words.

Your practice will focus on the words that you need to review the most to make sure the words you learn will really stick.

100% Recommend!

I truly never write reviews, but this app was worth it. I searched around aimlessly for additional study tools as I study for my GRE. Some other companies that will remain nameless were asking for upwards of $700 for self-taught materials and I began to feel overwhelmed because expendable funds were not in my future. A friend of mine recommended Magoosh and I checked it out. In under 24 hours, I was hooked - ESPECIALLY with this vocabulary app. It'd been a long time since I've had to study vocabulary but this app is by far the most user friendly and precise studying tool I've ever used. It's so enjoyable that it's one of the first apps I go to in my phone, it's like a game. DEFINITELY worth it 100%.


Great for Commuters

I work full time, so it's hard to slip Vocab into my daily routine (unless I want to irritate my coworkers with word repetition). I've been using this app to reinforce my memory of newly learned vocab words on my commute to and from work, or anytime I have the urge to look at my phone (better to scroll through this app than instagram right?). I think it helps immensely to be able to study vocab straight through an app, rather than having to access Magoosh through a website. However, I think the app would be more effective if it allowed users to make notes on each card. I make up stories for some words to help remember them, and if I could insert these into the cards so I can review each time, that might help a lot.


Great app for learning GRE vocab

I have been using this app for a couple of weeks now and it's been really great to test my knowledge of vocab that can and will be on the GRE. I haven't taken the actual exam yet but I have been doing practice questions and a lot of these words have appeared on the practice exams. I only wish that you could hear the pronunciation of the words. There are some words that I've never seen/heard of and it would be nice to hear what they sound like. Sometimes I get stuck on how to pronounce a word that I don't focus on learning the meaning. But besides that I think this app is great. I also appreciate that you also get examples of how the words can be used in a sentence.
