USA Today calls SAT Word Slam™
"The cream of the crop among SAT study apps."

Featured in a 2015 Wall Street Journal story about SAT Vocab apps.

The Free version - SAT Word Slam™ FREE - teaches 25 words and lets you try a fully functioning version of the app. Within the free app, just tap "Buy Full App" and you'll soon be learning 800 critical SAT words.

Voice actors read the poems for you, so the power of audio makes the definitions stick even faster!

A GREAT FEATURE designed with Teachers in mind: PLAYLIST! Create a list of words for focused study—perfect for classroom use. Save as many individualized PLAYLISTS as you like.

Most vocabulary apps and books are just a bunch of flash cards and test questions. But FLASH CARDS are outdated (and they’re boring). That’s just not teaching. And studying hundreds of vocabulary words by rote won’t help you remember the definitions for long.

But your memory will LOVE the rhyme, audio, and “REMEMBER THIS” clues in the SAT Word Slam™ app. You’ll be amazed by how quickly you’ll learn the meanings of words and how well you’ll remember them months and years from now.

"You feel enmity for your ENEMY."
"Prowess makes you feel PROUD."
"Expunge is to wipe away, as you do with a SPONGE."
"A bastion can't be BASHED IN."
"Bumptious people will BUMP you out of line."

These are "REMEMBER THIS" clues, and they really work.

* Voice actors read short vocabulary poems for you.

* Proven-to-work “REMEMBER THIS” clues make the definitions easy to remember.

* Design your own lessons by marking words “Easy” and “Difficult.”

* Create your own PLAYLISTS to focus on specific words.

* Thousands of test questions help you gauge your progress.

*** This app uses EVERY TOOL POSSIBLE to help you learn and remember the definitions: synonyms, words in context, idioms, contemporary and historical references, humor, mnemonic clues, and audio. ***

Whenever you choose an incorrect answer in an untimed test, you can flip to the other side of the app to learn the word you should have chosen and then return to the test you were taking. That's teaching!

*** Solvent. Garner. Raze. Edict. Innate. Supplant. ***

What do they mean? Let us teach you these and hundreds more—fast.

The fastest way to increase your SAT score is to improve your vocabulary.
And the fastest way to improve your vocabulary is by using The SAT Word Slam™.

An enjoyable and intellectually stimulating way to refresh my memory of the words I learned from my first encounter with the SAT. I recommend for students and for those who have long since completed their studies but still enjoy words. It is wonderful for your self confidence to be articulate and have an extensive vocabulary. This is a great tool to assist you in that endeavor.

Wish I had this when I took the SAT!


This app is an absolute must-have - not only for students prepping for the SAT but for anyone wanting to stretch their vocabulary. So much more fun than those regular word-of-the-day apps - this one incorporates clever rhymes and hilarious voiceover performances. My favorite is the Boston lady! Get this - seriously - it will become your new favorite app... :)

Really helpful and really fun.


I'm pretty lazy when it comes to studying, so this app is like magic for me because it's funny. Love the character voices. What a fantastic way to teach vocab. Lots of synonyms and context clues for every word they teach. And the **Remember This** clues help me remember the material better than anything I've tried in my entire life. This is a great app.
