Features of the Magoosh SAT Flashcards
Admittedly, there are more than a couple flashcard tools available for SAT test takers to get their hands on, but when Magoosh puts a new tool out, you can bet they’re serious about making a game changer. So what sets these flashcards apart?
First off, meticulous detail was given to not only the words chosen, but also the definitions and example sentences that accompany those words. This isn’t a box of cards that you picked up from Barnes and Noble with half-baked sentences for words you’d probably never see on the SAT anyway. The 350 words are broken down into smaller decks so you know which level of words you need to tackle next.
Secondly, they’re adaptive. That means you don’t just cycle through words and hope that rote memorization will do the trick. It won’t. The Magoosh SAT flashcards use an algorithm that employs the Spaced Repetition Technique (SRT) to help you focus on words you’re struggling with the most. As you master a word, you’ll see it less and less frequently until it becomes firmly stored in your memory.
You can take them anywhere, so all that time on the bus or waiting in line can be turned into productive time. There’s not only a web-based platform, but also an iPhone app and Android app as well, all containing the entire 350 words and all linked so you can switch between platforms to learn whenever and wherever.
But most importantly, they’re FREE! The entire set is completely available for free, no strings attached. According to Magoosh SAT team, acing the SAT shouldn’t be for only those with the deepest pockets.
