- Flashcards -
Hundreds of easy-to-use flashcards feature the most widely tested words and definitions. Once you know the word, you can save in a separate stack, so you can focus on building your vocabulary with new words. BONUS: Our flashcards feature an option where you can study the prefixes, roots, and suffixes, most commonly used – everything from anti, to vid.
- Test Yourself -
Four, real-world practice tests give you a feel for what to expect on the test. The practice tests illustrate the meaning of words by placing them in the context of a sentence—usually through humorous stories. The ability to mark and then review only marked questions, gives you practice on what you need the most. Plus, explanations provided for each answer. Automatic scoring at the end of each test tells you your percentage score for that test. And you can review all the answers at the end of each test or just the ones where you got the answer wrong. An exclusive Genius Test challenges even the most gifted vocabulary student.
- Word Lookup -
A comprehensive, alphabetical listing of the most common words found on the SAT gives you an opportunity to review words at your own pace. Prefer to search for a word, no problem, the handy search feature finds the word you need quickly and easily. Complete with definition and handy “rhymes with” tips for pronouncing tough words, you’ll have a superfluous (excessive) vocabulary and you may even be sanguine (cheerful or optimistic) about the test.

What's New in Version 1.2
Bug fix for problem when changing orientation multiple times on ipad. Other minor fixes.
Excellent start but could use more...
This is a very good introduction to wide variety of vocab words. However, without knowing whether the word is a noun, verb, adjective, etc. it is hard to know how these words would used in a sentence. (Agree that an example sentence would be very helpful!)
If you are strictly using this to memorize words & their definitions, it's great. But if you are looking to apply these words to your regular vocabulary and writings, this app won't help unless changes and additions are made.
The rhymes with feature is good, but the actual pronunciation would also help too. Overall, great start and I'm looking forward to what else can be added to make this app better! Thank you!
Very Helpful But Can Be Improved
This is helpful but it should have an example sentence for each word so that you know how to use it. Also, add voice so you know how to pronounce the words.
It has flash cards, test, many extra things to study I liked the practice test especially
