Vocab++: An Application to Ameliorate Your Vocabulary

Vocab++: An Application to Ameliorate Your Vocabulary

Anyone who has ever looked in the dictionary, whether of physically-bound or online variety, can understand the sheer amount of words in the English language. However, most people only stick to a few common words they are comfortable with.

If anyone has taken a standardized test, like the SAT for College entrance and the GRE for Graduate School entrance, then you know that they like to use words that are less common in every day conversation. So if you have a standardized test coming up, or just want to impress your friends, if you have no friends you can impress your mother when you come out of the basement for dinner, then XDA  Forum Member rb6teen has just the application to help you, Vocab++.

As described by the developer:

… an Android app called vocab++, which uses images (each one of which is curated by hand) to assist users in boosting their vocabulary. It’s built on the principle of visual association (remember when we were kids, and our books were filled with illustrations to help us learn new words?).

Currently, the application has Word Packs for the TOEFL, Test of English as a Foreign Language, SAT and GRE standardized tests.  A Word Pack for the Common Admission Test, CAT, should be added soon.

As a recent test taker of the GMAT, Graduate Management Admission Test, I see the great value here. Using the GRE Word Pack would allow you to understand more of the questions and write a better Analytical Writing Assessment Section Essay. This wonderful tool can be found in the application thread.
