    "I wish I could give this app 10 stars. I absolutely love it! It has been so helpful in studying, and I feel prepared for the SAT test. The games are interactive and force you to understand the vocabulary, instead of just memorizing it. I recommend this to anyone preparing for a standardized test or wishing to expand their vocabulary."

    • THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *

    At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why the MindSnacks SAT vocab app includes 9 challenging games designed by Ivy League professors. Each game focuses on a different aspect of vocabulary building, creating a well-rounded learning experience that goes far beyond simple flashcards and word lists.

    Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating material from the word lists with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn more words, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.

    Perfect for students preparing for the SAT, PSAT and GRE exam, or adults looking to expand their vocabulary, MindSnacks’ SAT Vocab app is like a helpful vocab tutor that goes where you go and teaches on your terms.
