Vocabulary Builder for SAT ACT GRE GMAT LSAT is a basic program that contains more than 2,000 words for vocabulary practice. Although the program works fine, we wish we knew more about where its words come from and their relevance to each test.

The program's interface is basic, with separate sections for memorizing words and taking practice tests. The word memorization section features an audio recitation feature using Microsoft Sam, which we didn't particularly like; we've always found Sam kind of hard to understand, and we'd rather read the words and definitions anyway. We wish that this part of the interface was more conducive to visual study of the words, perhaps with a flash card-style layout. The practice test section of the program is fine, letting users select the number of questions in each test and view their errors at the end. The program is supposed to have an online Help file, but it didn't work. Our major problem with this program is that while it advertises itself as a preparation tool for a number of different standardized tests, there's nothing specific to each test and no way to set the difficulty level of the words. The ACT is not the same as the LSAT, and there's no way for users to know whether the words they're studying with this program are appropriate for the test they're planning to take. Overall the program did seem to offer words that are, broadly speaking, appropriate for standardized tests, but with college or grad school at stake, users may want to study with a tool that's a little more specific.

This program has a 15-day/60-use trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
