[prMac.com] Annapolis, Maryland - Achieving a high score on the SAT or ACT can open doors, leading to academic and, ultimately, professional success. So high schoolers are wise to make the most of their study time. With the new Barron's Hot Words for the SAT iOS mobile app from developer, gWhiz, and leading publisher, Barron's, prepping on the go has never been easier.
Incorporating the latest in mobile technology, Barron's Hot Words for the SAT is an innovative and eminently portable way to review key vocabulary from both the SAT and ACT. With 10 free flash cards and 355 more available through in-app purchase, this app takes a comprehensive approach to test prep. And unlike other study aids, Barron's Hot Words for the SAT utilizes the highly effective cluster method, grouping words with similar definitions together rather than presenting them in an alphabetical list. This method allows for quicker memorization and recall, leading to a higher score on test day.
Beyond flash cards, Barron's Hot Words for the SAT also includes a customizable practice exam allowing users to assess their test readiness and track progress. By building an exam by cluster, users can easily identify problem areas and focus valuable study time where it is most needed. Users can also access detailed analytics to review their exam history and statistics like their weekly progress and their cluster strength and weaknesses.
"There is little doubt that effective preparation is the key to success not just on the SAT and ACT exams but in life itself," notes Kevin Reville, gWhiz founder. "The beauty of our Barron's Hot Words for the SAT mobile app is that it allows students to personalize their study materials and, ultimately, optimize their test prep time."
