If you are a student preparing for GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) then I hope you are familiar with Barron’s GRE word list. Most of you may have purchased How to Prepare for the GRE with CD-ROM (Barron’s How to Prepare for the Gre Graduate Record Examination)(16th Edition).
Even I do have Barron’s book, but due to my tight work schedule and DW (and gals too 😉 I hardly get time for going through wordlists provided in Barron’s book. Moreover I know 3500+ words can not be done overnight. So I decided to look for some application which I can install on my mobile. As of now I have found two kool applications by which I can utilize my all spare time going through these wordlists. Here are my reviews about two offline dictionaries that doesn’t required internet connection!
Requirement: Following are Java applications i.e. jar files so they will work on almost every Java enabled phone.
1. Wordy (Freeware)
This one is my favorite. Really simple interface! Developed by Murali Krishnan.
Only three keys needed to navigate throughout the wordlist.
- * (star) “ for previous word is list
- 0 (zero) “ for random word
- # (hash) “ for next word
Also you can type a word of your choice to get its meaning instantly!
Download Wordy (258 KB) | GetJar Page | Email Murali (to say thanks) 🙂
2. GRE Vocabulary Builders (USD $19.99)
- It contains Barron’s GRE Word list (4839 words and definitions)
- It also contains Most Common GRE Word list (1178 words & definitions)
- 5 Vocabulary builder games help you to learn words & definitions
- Searching is very fast and list of words is provided as you type.
- A diary is provided to write short notes.
This is good too in terms of functionality but in terms of interface Wordy wins! Also $19.99 is cost to consider.
