Vocaboly

CNET Editors' review

This 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.

    "Cool software but super costly"

    August 4, 2010  |   By Begemot2

    Version: Vocaboly 3.0

    Pros

    The games and test are great and are a helpful tool studying for various exams.

    Cons

    Price, no cheaper option for just one test.

    Summary

    Great software but whether you're only studying for one type of an exam or all - the cost of the same and it's pretty steep. After trying the shareware, I'd be happy to pay 20-25 bucks for something like this. But at $80 it's just not worth it. There are many free websites and resources for these exams and while vocaboly is cooler than most of its competitors, I can't bring myself to pay so much for it. I can't imagine many would.
