Description

VocabVirtuoso is the perfect app for those studying for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or anyone in general seeking to improve their vocabulary skills:

-It includes a customized and finely-tuned dictionary of 4190 words precisely the set of words most frequently tested on the GRE.

-The dictionary has been optimized to exclude more common words and definitions and to test for multiple-meanings as typically encountered in the GRE. The dictionary definitions include example phrases and have been refined such that they are in a format most suitable for quizzing.

-The system adapts to your learning style, keeping extensive statistics so the priority-based quiz engine can present you with repeatedly missed words while placing less emphasis on words already known or those newly mastered.

-The app makes your stats available and allows the customization of parameters which control the quiz process, including drill set size and priority weighting allowing you to either concentrate on the most pressing words or approach a broader variety of words.

VocabVirtuoso helps you master the GRE vocabulary quickly. Spending a modest amount of time each day makes augmenting your vocabulary easy and fun!

VocabVirtuoso quizzes you with a configurable sized set of words. The target word is presented with five definition choices. The system works best when you try to think of your own definition before looking at the choices. If you do not know the word at all, it is best to pass in order to avoid the chance of biasing the rankings system with a correct guess. The system keeps track of your previous rankings and statistics in order to create each drill set based on priority. The priority weighting controls the spread of words in the set higher priority weights tend to focus on words with lower overall rankings while lower priority weights include a more diverse mix of words.
