Chip away at the SAT vocabulary, one day at a time

In an ideal world, the best way to prepare for the vocabulary portion of the SAT is to learn one new word each day.

The Daily Word, an SAT vocabulary app produced by The Learning Edge, is a high school student’s new ally in the battle against the SAT.

Mark Anestis, The Daily Word creator and SAT tutor of 13 years, says, “More often than not, the hardest part of SAT preparation, for even the most focused and hard-working student, is keeping on top of vocabulary review. There are a lot of words to know, and The Daily Word offers students one word to focus on each day.”

Anestis continues, “In an ideal world, the best way to prepare for the vocabulary portion of the SAT is to learn one new word each day, starting at the beginning of 10th grade, and build up an arsenal of 500-600 SAT words by test day with continued review. The Daily Word allows students to accomplish this mission.”

The Daily Word has 4 main features:

(1) A word of the day notification
(2) A notecard creation system
(3) A notecard review system
(4) A Game Center that provides practice questions

The Word of the Day serves as a daily reminder for students to review some vocabulary words. Each day, the Word of the Day will appear on the device and prompt students to review that word.

The notecard creation system allows students to build up notecard stacks of words that they can study.

The notecard review system helps students build the deep vocabulary they need to dominate the Critical Reading portion of the SAT.

The Game Center lets students test their vocabulary in context. The app comes with 100 Sentence Completion questions and 100 Synonym Search questions.
