A vocabulary building program! Use it to practice for SAT, GRE, GMAT or any vocabulary intensive examinations, or simply to increase your vocabulary. Still available but no longer maintained.
The program asks you a series of Multiple Choice questions. You can either click on the choices or press the option number from the keyboard (for example, Press 1 for option 1).
You can jump to the next word by pressing Enter, or display the answer for the question by pressing ESC (which means Give Up).
Other commands: press e to Edit the current word, m to mark the current word Mastered (the word will not be tested again). You can choose the type of words you wish to practice from the File menu. The default choice is Practice All Words.
This tool helps you to track your progress. It also provides you a grade (from D to A++) depending on the number of words you have mastered.
Just type a word and click Search!
This tool makes editing the words easier. It is especially helpful to categorize words and to get rid of words you already know by marking them Mastered; Mastered words will not be tested. This is also the only tool that allows you to unmark Mastered words (in other words, mark them "Unmastered").
Please note that any changes you make is automatically saved. The option to undo the changes will be provided in future versions of the program.
