Who makes the flashcards?


The entire GRE wordlist is selected and defined with usage examples by Magoosh’s expert GRE tutor, Chris Lele. He has been teaching the GRE for more than 10 years, runs a popular vocabulary series on YouTube and he’s also written an eBook on vocabulary. He is nigh unbeatable in Scrabble, or any other word game for that matter.

How well will I learn the words?


Academic research has found that memories are formed by repeated exposure to new information, so Magoosh’s flashcard app uses a spaced repetition system. Words you are learning will reappear frequently (occurring less frequently the better you know them) and words you already know won’t be repeated. The GRE word list is culled to only 250 so that you focus on only the most important words.

Your practice will focus on the words that you need to review the most to make sure the words you learn will really stick.

Overall great app

It would be super helpful if we could click to view all of the words in a category. After moving through several decks, I wanted to go back and review previous decks to make sure I was still remembering those words... it’s a bit difficult when you have to click through all of the words and I wasn’t sure if I already saw all 50 or if I needed to keep clicking to review more.

Also, it may be a bit much for an app, but it would be fun if there were some other ways of memorizing the words... similar to quizlet that has games. For example, offering just the definition and you have to click the word that matches the definition.

The sentence completion is too easy because several of the word options are not words we studied in the deck. So... process of elimination is too simple.

Overall great app. I took the practice test and recognized many of the words from the app. Thanks!

Update: I took the official GRE yesterday and my verbal score went up 6 points from the practice! The only decks I used were the common words and part of the basic words. I memorized A LOT of words that I didn’t see on the exam, BUT it was still worth it because I saw several words from the decks and I was able to use some of these words in my essay which hopefully boosted my score. Thanks a ton! If I was studying for this again, which I honestly hope I never have to... I’d use these Flashcards and hopefully memorize all of the decks

Magoosh is the reason I’m going to do well on the GRE

Love all of Magoosh’s apps. I got the vocabulary app first so I could study on the go, and it quickly became a huge part of my study plan. Then I realized Magoosh has al these lessons and study plans available online so I signed up and have not been disappointed at all. I feel like I’m learning soo much more than I would be able to do on my own, given their schedules and quizzes. Magoosh is definitely the reason I’m going to do well on the GRE.

I do wish there was a way to flag certain words in order to build a customized bank to study from rather than seeing the words in one category in a random order. I know they pace you and show you the words you need to work on the most, but sometimes I’d like to come back to a word after going through other words to give my brain a break from the one word that I’m having a hard time with. If they just show me the same word that I can’t remember over and over, it discourages me and makes me wish I could just hit “next” rather than “I knew this”/“I didn’t know this”

App is amazing

So I am getting ready for med school DPT. This app Is amazing because it pronounces the vocabulary words so you learn to use them in every day speech. As well I am extremely dyslexic so have something that is audible is necessary for me. Believe it or not this is the only gre prep app that I could find that is audio. I started by using the Flashcards eventually got the whole course prep. I have already used
Kaplan and also tried a few others, and felt lost and overwhelmed. Having a learning disability trying to process all the information can be difficult. But this program is amazing. You learn from your mistakes and see yourself improving. It sets a day by day schedule and the price is great . As well Each problem has a video explanation of how they arrive at the answer. Have not taken the test yet so I will update you on the outcome; however, I finally feel confident that I achieve the score I need to. I do recommend this to anyone who is dyslexic.
