When preparing for a major admission test, such as the LSAT, ">MCAT, or GRE, we want to make sure we are doing it semi right. In other words, we only want to be investing our time and money into something that will actually work and give us competitive results.
There are various options and ways to access this general assistance and information, but some apps are better than others. To find out some helpful apps working for college students, continue to read below.
BenchPrep, who used to go by Watermelon Express, offers advanced learning methods to help prepare for tests including the SAT and ">MCAT. The devices work for many platforms, such as iPads, iPhones, Androids and laptops. The app is free to download, although to receive exclusive tests and study guides, you would have to purchase the specific content for a total of $25.
With this app, you can write messages to other users, create a study schedule that alerts you to study, and start a test on any device and finish it when you decide you have both the time and motivation.
2. Illustrate: The Video Dictionary
Use Illustrate: The Video Dictionary to mainly study for the GRE, and get it free through various platforms. Its sole use is preparing for the Verbal and English sections, which they do by including videos demonstrating the usage, origin, and meaning for the specific vocabulary term.
A special perk is that every day there is a “Word of the Day,” as well as a “Question of the Day.” If you are looking for something that really shows you the effective use of using a word, then this app is perfect for you. Plus, who does not like free?
IntelliVocab is specifically for studying for the GRE and GMAT, and is also very free. It takes away your stress by you interacting with it. Basically, all you have to do is use it. So this means practicing problems, completing sections, and learning the terms.

The more you use it, the more your app learns about you, and plans questions accordingly to your learning curve.
No this is not pregame, but it can be just as fun as one, maybe. PrepGame is also free (yay!) and creates a unique learning experience by turning test prep into an enjoyable game. You can use it for a variety of tests, including the ">MCAT, GRE, and the ACT.
With time as a factor, you will have to pass levels, beat high scores, and earn stars along the way. The major factor of this app is its focus on math. It offers six different math topics and encourages the learning by allowing you to master the key tested concepts.
5. LSAT Max
Created under Harvard Law School alumni, this free app offers video lessons specifically for preparing for the LSAT. On the app, there is a message board where users can ask questions, and professors actually answer them at a fast pace. Cool, right?
With LSAT Max, you are able to access and practice every single LSAT question that has ever been released. Basically, you will never have enough time to learn all of what this app freely offers students. But you should definitely try anyway.
6. Magoosh GRE
Another app using video technology to their advantage is Magoosh GRE, a free app that assists students in preparing for taking the GRE. They offer assistance and learning opportunities for Math, Verbal and Writing. So no worries, you have everything you should be studying right in front of you.
The many videos display information on the formatting of the test and countless videos (over 30 hours worth) explaining the three separate sections, and provides examples to every single concept that can and most likely will be found on the test. With this app, you should be more than ready to do exceedingly well on the GRE.
Preparing for a test is extremely stressful, alarming, and anxiety driven; we all have been there. However, the best thing to do is to prepare and hope for the best. But more than that, you need to study, keep a positive and realistic attitude, and be ready to sit for hours on end staring at a computer screen (and no, it is not Netflix).
There are literally countless test preparation guides, sites, and classes out there to help you. But with these apps, you are able to use them at your expense and desire, and receive the specific test prep that you are searching for. And don’t fret about it, just breathe and do.
In this paper, the authors present the first systematic summary of predictive validity research on the new Medical College Admission Test (">MCAT) since its introduction in 1977. Data are drawn primarily from the ">MCAT Interpretive Studies Program, a cooperative effort between the Association of American Medical Colleges and 30 of its member schools to conduct research that will both facilitate local use of the test scores and contribute to a national perspective on their value in medical school admissions. The results show that ">MCAT scores by themselves have significant predictive validity with respect to first- and second-year medical school course grades and National Board of Medical Examiners Part I examination scores and that they complement the predictive validity of undergraduate college grades. The ">MCAT Science Knowledge areas of assessment, particularly Biology and Chemistry, and the Science Problems subtest tend to have higher correlations than the Skills Analysis subtests with initial performance in medical school; however, the Skills Analysis: Reading subtest may retain its predictive value best over time. Correlation values are discussed in terms of methodological factors which constrain their size. They are also compared with those found for other professional and graduate school admission tests. Further directions for ">MCAT validity research are described.

'She was a wonderful employee and so bright and one of those kids that you know will be exceptional and find success,' she said.
'I have so many young successful kids. I have one who's a nurse at the local hospital, but she'll take the occasional shift just for the fun of it, if you can believe that. It's just a nice atmosphere for working.'
She added that she likes to create a relaxed atmosphere for staff by throwing parties for them and hosting BBQs in the back.
'I work in the store with the staff and have the opportunity to really get to know each person, so it’s a nice thing to see that young people who have found success take the time to take a pen and write a note. It’s so thoughtful.'
