Painless GRE

Painless GRE


Learn GRE words in a painless and efficient way with spaced repetition.

Features:
* most common GRE words with examples

All the best for your GRE prepping. From Phil, with love ^^.

------------------------------------

NOTE: you can manually mark a word as 'mastered' by long tapping on it in the word list. A mastered word will still show up in rare occasions.

If you spot typos/mistakes, don't hesitate to email me :)

Upcoming features:
* more intuitive graphs
* games (maybe)

My thanks for all the help from Bilal Hasan and Abbas Eghlimi.

FAQ:

1. Please add feature to allow resuming session.
-> No. It's a design decision. You are supposed to work on an entire session in one go without distraction.

2. I see mastered words again...
-> Mastered words will still reappear in rare occasions. They might happen in batch.

3. I suddenly get all new words regardless of the set ratio
-> Old words will not reappear immediately. They need a while to show up again. The duration increases over time if you do well on them.

4. I suddenly get all old words regardless of the set ratio.
-> You have been trying to cram too much in a short period of time.

In summary, the app takes care of old words/new words for you. The principle is few repetition over a long, increasing periods of time is more effective than lots of frequent ones. I add some options other than the default ones due to excessive whining from multiple people. Use them at your own risks. Basically, if you're trying to cram a crazy number of words in a short period of time, you're looking for something else. Please don't ask for a "fix".

Fantastic vocab tool! Really great app! The session structure (word review, multi choice, fill in the blank) has been real helpful. Haven't used another app that made you spell the word and thought it would limit me, but has been a terrific aide. One question I have is how the #of words "ready" by new session is determined? I'll go through a number of sessions one day and it'll be 3683 for example and the next day it'll be 3745. Are these old words being added back to the total, cause I'd like to know how many new words are left

Awesome app! This is one of the best apps to learn gre words in an efficient way. I want to give a suggestion to the developer, it would have been great if there would be an option of 100 percent old word ratio too. As i have already learned about more than 1500 hundred words i just wanted to concentrate on them before moving forward.
