Editors' reviewThis program helps strengthen your vocabulary in preparation for a variety of exams. After installation, Vocaboly prompts you to choose whether you're taking the TOEFL, the GMAT, the SAT, the GRE, or the VOA Special English. The clear and direct interface lists all your study options on the main window's left side. We were impressed by the number of ways Vocaboly can help you learn. For example, you can have words and meanings randomly tick across your screen, take a multiple-choice test, spell words when given their definitions, and play several games. The only complaint we have is that the app's speech engine failed to work when we asked it to pronounce a word. You can study the app's entire database of words at once, or you can choose to concentrate on specific sections. Although the trial version doesn't let you access the program's entire word list, we think Vocaboly will assist a wide range of users studying for a number of tests.
Vocaboly is an award-winning vocabulary builder for SAT, TOEFL, GRE, and GMAT tests and for general vocabulary building. Vocaboly contains five books--SAT, TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, and VOA Special English--with 12,000 words, each provided with meaning, phonetic symbol, and pronunciation. You can select a book according to your purpose and English level, and you can create your own books and enjoy all the creative features. Each book contains eight flash cards for focusing on specified words. Each word can be assigned to a difficulty level of 0 to 5. Each user has his or her own study record and software setting, which is saved automatically when you quit the program. Study methods include a word ticker, recall, spelling, listening, multiple choice, memory game, and a Star Wars game.
