1.5.0 (See all)

This program helps you prepare for your vocabulary SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test). SAT Vocab Prep randomly selects 20 questions from a list of over 5000 enquiries and your objective is to answer correctly as many as you can.

The application features a straightforward interface, comes with a built-in help guide, and enables you to disable sound effects if necessary. All you need to do is click the Start Test button and begin selecting the correct answers for 20 multiple-choice questions.

An advantage is that the program lets you know which is the correct answer if you offer a wrong response.

However, the application still needs some development. After you complete a test, the program immediately displays an error (An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down.). Your score isn't saved and the app immediately shuts down. Hence, the high score function doesn't work as well since the utility cannot save your best results.

Also, it would be great if there was an option to take timed quizzes.

Cutting a long story short, I don't think it's worth installing a program on your Mac if it doesn't work 100%.
