The MindSnacks S.A.T. vocabulary app provides the challenge of a game with learning S.A.T. vocabulary.

Having  trouble finding a creative way to study for standardized test vocabulary? There’s an app for that. When people ask me why I chose to write Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T., I often say that I have a short attention span for sitting in a quiet room memorizing vocabulary words and definitions. If you can accomplish a task and have fun while doing it, why not?

I’m back at Choate, the PSATs are looming, and I don’t have access to a kitchen. On my quest to find other fun studying methods, I came across some great applications for the iPad, all of which involve games and challenges to encourage vocabulary memorization. So far, after having only played some of the games a few times, I have already memorized about 30 words. Not bad!

Whether you cook you way through the S.A.T., study your way through the S.A.T., or play your way through the S.A.T., learning vocabulary can be a piece of cake.

The apps are also equipped with personal progress trackers that let you know how well you know a word and where there is room for improvement. My favorite SAT vocab app is from MindSnacks because of the challenge it provides and the number of words I have already learned while using it.

The next time I have some free time, I’d like to make an app for Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T.  That’s probably not going to happen anytime soon :-).

What are your favorite ways to learn vocabulary?
