Vocabulary.com is an excellent vocabulary study service offering thousands of vocabulary practice lists and activities for students in elementary school through graduate school. This week Vocabulary.com launched a new iPad app ($2.99).
Through the app students can access hundreds of lists of SAT, GRE, and other test prep words. Students can also use the app to can find vocabulary lists that are attached to novels, historical documents, famous speeches, and current news articles.
When you sign up for Vocabulary.com you will be given an assessment quiz in order to give you suggested lists with which to start your practice. After completing the assessment you can use the practice lists suggested by Vocabulary.com or choose your own lists from the huge gallery of vocabulary lists.
One of the aspects of the Vocabulary.com activities that I like is the instant feedback for every practice question a student attempts. Vocabulary.com has an optional competition aspect to it. Students can play for their schools and climb the Vocabulary.com leaderboard.
