App Features

- 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 – everything from anti- to vid.

- Test Yourself -

Four, real-world practice tests give you a feel for what to expect on the test. The customizable practice tests offer 25 questions each and illustrate the meaning of words by placing them in the context of a sentence—usually through humorous stories. The ability to flag questions and then review only those questions gives you practice on what you need the most. Plus, detailed explanations are provided for each correct answer. Automatic scoring at the end of each test lets you easily track your progress. 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 with 50 questions 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. Search for a word with ease. 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.

Excellent start but could use more...

nana624

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!

Great app to enhance your vocabulary!

I love this app! I especailly like the root option where you can improve your knowledge of prefixes, suffixes and smaller words that make up big words. To improve on this app I would add more of the root flash cards becuse they really helped me understand words better and I know there are more than I think the 100 or so the app has. I got that App last night and I already know all the roots! It's addicting!

Not SAT words!

I tutor and study the SAT constantly and always am looking for good ways for my kids to study for it. This app is poor. It appears to have been made by randomly choosing tough vocab words from the dictionary with no knowledge of the SAT itself.

You would never see most of these words on an SAT. So, it may help improve your vocab, but the app-makers certainly didn't look at any real SATs to determine what words to test. This app won't influence your SAT score a bit.
