Why use Barron's 1100 ?
This application is an ideal tool to build effective vocabulary and to prepare for GRE, GMAT, SAT and TOEFL.
How to use the application to learn word meanings effectively ?
Start by selecting a particular Set or Alphabet. Have a look at Words and Meanings from Word Lists a few times. When you feel confident that you know the meaning of most of the words, move to Flash Cards.
Flash Cards will challenge you more, as now you will have to guess the meaning. Keep going through Flash Cards till you have mastered all of the words.
Start another Set or Alphabet now and do all of the above mentioned steps.
A few days later go back to Set/Alphabet for which you previously mastered the flash cards list. Reset the progress of this Set and try Quizzes now. Quizzes will be even more difficult, as this time you will have to select correct meaning from four confusing meaning. Proceed with the quizzes till you have mastered all words. At this point you can be sure that you have learned almost all the meaning effectively.
* If you find a word with meaning too difficult to remember, favorite that word. Later, to avoid wasting time on already learned words, you can change the settings to see only favorite words and use flash cards and quizzes to learn only these words.

Its a overall good package. Still, it'll be better if mnemonics are also included with example sentences.
Great app...very handy in use...only con is audio should be there for pronunciation of words.Rest is perfect. :)
There are no bookmark option...when ever i close the app ...i need to scroll to that place again and again
A must have app for GRE Prep! If synonyms are added, it makes it even better.
The app needs to integrate text selection so that searching through other dictionaries is possible
This feature helps u guess our learn, I found it really helpful
It would be better if you provide antonym synonym along with the meaning of word ..
Please correct the absurd delay when switching app..
I think words are not 1100 and they are about 800
The flashcard learning method is very useful feature of this app. Loved the way it is!
It's a very nice app. I have purchased the quiz and that is also great!
Learning is so simple and seems like playing... Easy way to learn new words
Why are you asking me to rate again and again?
Interface is bad, otherwise it is a great app.
I like it. It is friendly in use
Having tried a few other apps.. I have finally stuck to this.. Perhaps the best and most user friendly app that gives a list, flash card, quiz, marking, filters all in 1 app.. One suggestion though, if you can enable the selection of multi options from filter list.. Say I want to practise set 1, 2 and 3 together.. So I can select them from filter at the same time.. Other than that pretty much has it all :)
The app is good. I have purchased quiz also. However, there's a delay when you switch between apps, say I switch from Merriam to Barron's, the word which I was last at, takes infinite time to load after I come back to Barron's. Also, a 'new' word loads. As a user I expect quick loading when I switch between apps. It will be great if this is rectified.
When switching to flashcard screen from the following: word list screen, quiz screen, switching from different app to barrons app, minimizing the barrons app, opening app switcher and coming back to barrons app, locking/unlocking the phone, the flashcard shows a new word. This is not a major flaw and the app can be used with this but this does create some annoyance when this happens. How come it never was catched by the testing team? I have shuffle feature on and using set 1.
There are two flaws, one is that they have around 800-900 words and not 1100 and another is that the meanings of some words are confusing and I used to refer dictionary for meanings. But I got addicted to it and so gave an extra star.
If i touch wordlist/flashcards/quize tabs right before the setting gear application gets stopped with message 'unfortunately barrons 1100stopped working'. Also stopps when switching apps. A suggestion: update either the words are noun/adjective etc.
The app is really helpful. But when the screen gets locked and i unlock, the app automatically takes me to a new word without me pressing the next button. Please fix this bug.
Definitely a decent app. But some of the definitions are vague and sometimes doesn't match up with the Barron's book. Moreover, the words and example sentences are in pretty small fonts.
Only one problem- can't access premium version even though gave the credit card details.... Shows incorrect card though it's authentic
This is by far the best GRE vocab app. I wish the vocab quizzes and tests were free as well. Students do not have money, you know:)))
I am using this app to build my vocabulary for the GRE. So far I have had a great experience with this app....its worth it to pay the dollar for the premium version to quiz yourself.
This app is really useful. Please implement search option in the app. I have to scroll all the way down if I have to find a word. And also in the word list if I select a word I can see only it's meaning and not it's example sentence. It would be of great help if I could see the sentence in the word list also because flashcards are shuffled and there is noway I can search them there.
The option of selecting words is really helpful. You can scan over the entire list,mark all the unknown words and change the settings so that only those are shown. It saves a lot of time.
The flash cards added a lot of fun to learning making it much easier to memorise the words. You can also read sentences having the particular word which again aids to the learning process. Overall a good app for Gre.
No much use with these words, as many are not seen in actual exam and many used in GRE are not in the list at all...
Great app. Since vocabulary is a large part of the GRE, this app assists you in expanding your vocabulary which is essential if you want a high verbal score.
No better source odd prep for the gre verbal section
The quiz is a good way to increase word retention and recollection :)
It is very good app. loved the way it teaches new words. Good work team keep it up. :)
User friendly format, convenient features.
Amount deducted but app is not upgraded .please help
Good to learn words from and all the best for Revising the words already done but which you can't remember. Just mark them as favorite.
Hi.I purchased the quiz.but some important words are missing.so please help with that.example aggrandize
The app has quite a good collection of words and offers an array of options of learning to suit your needs. Really loving it!
in flash cards one more option should be added : "i have already mastered it dont show it to me in future"
It had basic , intermediate and a few advanced words. Though I wish there were more advanced vocabulary.
