  • Do you want to pay?

    Would not go for it unless you’re willing to spend money ($20). Otherwise you get 50 words starting with “A-“, some simple, some seemingly unnecessary, some possibly helpful, but if you want more than just 50 Flashcards, then you have to pay.
  • Helpful app!

    This is a very useful app. While taking practice tests (from both Kaplan and ETS) and the real test, I frequently came across words included in these 500, indicating that Kaplan did its research. Offline access is a big pro, making it handy and readily available. You only need to log in once, and then you can access it anytime anywhere, provided you have a charged smartphone. That said, it's up to you to decide whether you'd pay 20 bucks for it. You can find similar GRE word sets on Quizlet, Memrise, etc., which have free offline apps as well. I paid for one of their prep courses, and access to the flashcards app was included as part of the deal. Each card has the word, part of speech, and pronunciation(s) on one side, and meaning, example sentence, and synonyms on the other. This makes the cards quite comprehensive. You can mark each card "Know", "Unsure", or "Don't Know", and create future decks using cards of one or more of these categories. A few feature tweaks I'd recommend are to add a search feature (to make it easy to look up cards), and make it possible to create decks containing just a set number of cards (10, 20, etc.), because working with all 500 cards to begin with is daunting.
  • Don't Waste Your Money

    Several years ago I paid for the Kaplan GRE vocabulary flashcards app with 500 words. Now I'm getting a message that says it will not be supported in the future unless Kaplan updates the app. Rather than updating the app that people had already paid for, Kaplan is requesting people download a new app and pay for the GRE vocab cards again. If this is any indication of how they will maintain this app moving forward, best not waste your money!
  • Need a lot of improvements

    Won't keep track of the words you learned once you close the app! You have to create a new deck every time!!!!
  • Kaplan vs. Magoosh flash card app

    I really like that the Kaplan flash cards "flip" in the app, that the pronunciation is below the word before you flip it, it provides stats, and there is an "unsure" option. (The Magoosh app doesn't have these features). However, the Magoosh app has double the words, saves your spot within a deck, and breaks the desks into reasonable sizes (50-51 words). The Kaplan app is great because it provides stats but when faced with a stack of 500 words to start (and it doesn't save your spot when you close the app) is not exactly manageable...

    I would not recommend. There are so many better sat prep apps on the market.

    This app is great and very convenient! I bought the physical flash cards and I'm glad this app comes free with the cards! Now I can study anywhere conveniently! Very user friendly but very simple. I wish the was more substance to this app, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. I wish there were some simple games to help remember the definition of the words. While just seeing the words and their definition is helpful it is still a very passive form of learning. Some people can't learn this way and need a more active method of learning these words. Adding a simple game section would better help people memorize words more easily! Also I wish there was additional ways to categorize the words. Sometimes I come across a new word that I enjoy and would like to work into my regular vocabulary. I wish there was a way to bookmark certain words that I can comeback to anytime I want! So in summation I find this app to be helpful but there is still a great deal of potential!
  • Awesome!!

    I have to say this app is the most user-friendly out of many gre vocab apps I'm using. It just has some really cool features to help you navigate around words you know, don't know, or unsure of. It makes learning a lot easier! I love this app! I think I'll do well on the GRE thanks to this.
  • Great app!

    Works well to track your progress and sort cards into different piles based on whether you know them.
