The SAT Word Slam™ app uses humor, rhyming poems, and mnemonic (memory) clues to teach you hundreds of CRITICAL SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, and TOEFL words.
The revised SAT (coming in 2016) is going to emphasize "Tier 2" words like "catalyst," "divest," "pervade," and "solvent." They've been in this app along!
FEATURED on the App Store in "What's Hot," "New and Noteworthy," and the EDUCATION COLLECTIONS: "Test Prep" and "Exam Time."
Also chosen by Apple to be a Demo App in Apple Retail Stores.
** Winner of Common Sense Media's ON For Learning Award! ** (Chosen as one of the 50 best apps, games, and websites for education.)
USA Today calls SAT Word Slam™
"The cream of the crop among SAT study apps."
The FULL APP teaches 400 words, and you have the option buy 400 more in additional word sets.
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 But FLASH CARDS are outdated (and they’re boring).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TOOL POSSIBLE to help you learn and remember the definitions: synonyms, words in context, idioms, contemporary and historical references, humor, mnemonic clues, and audio. ***
And CHECK OUT THIS FEATURE:
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. Bromidic. Effrontery. Affectation. Supplant. ***
What do they mean? Let us teach you these and hundreds more—fast.

Love, love, love!!!
Highly recommend!!! I teach seniors in Los Angeles - I use this app daily! I use it as a reward (this way they can play with their phone during class), I set up competitions between the kids, and I challenge them personally (I need to study for this!). It is so much fun and has infused my English classes with life, healthy competition and energy! I love it and the kids love it! Best app on the market!
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.
