- 250 commonly tested words on the GRE, as identified by The Princeton Review’s survey of past tests.
- Four distinct types of timed challenges to test the user on each word’s positive or negative connotation, synonyms, antonyms, and definition.
- Students can select answers quickly by swiping the screen or shaking the device.
