Sheppard Software Vocabulary Games5 stars

"Good." "Right." "Yes" "Great!" These five Sheppard quizzes offer encouraging spoken feedback. Two of the games draw from a vocabulary of 720 commonly-tested SAT/GRE words. Each round consists of twenty select-the-definition questions, so you can play over and over again, with very little repetition. The three non-SAT games are an expert-level vocab game (with words like "opprobrium" and "eldritch"), and quizzes on computer and medical terminology.
