    BIG CD FLASH CARDS

    By purchasing this product you've made an important first step

    towards mastering those difficult vocabulary words that appear on

    the GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, SAT, IELTS, CAT, etc. BIG CD FLASH CARDS were

    designed from the ground up to target these tests. It's packed with

    3843 testworthy words those that only students with an educatedvocabulary are likely to know. These are the words that the test-

    designers love to include on competitive exams especially in exam

    questions involving SYNONYMS, ANTONYMS, ANALOGIES, etc that

    test vocabulary directly

    HOW TO GET MOST OUT OF THIS PRODUCT?

    Memorizing the flash cards: Carry a few of these flash cards daily with

    you (say Box 1). Look at them when you travel from your home to

    college and vice-versa or sitting idle. Work in short bursts. Try going

    through 10 to 15 flash cards at a time, shuffling through them quickly

    so that you can build your rapid sight recognition of the words. You

    want these words, their synonyms and antonyms to spring to your mind

    instantaneously.

    Test your memory:Don't look at the back of the card as much as

    possible. Go through your set of 10 to 15 cards several times a day.Then, when you have mastered around 5 to 7 of the cards, set those

    cards aside and add the same number of new cards to your working

    pile. That way you will be working with a limited group, but you won't

    be wasting time reviewing words you have already known or

    mastered.

    NEVER TRY TO MASTER A WHOLEBOX OF FLASH CARDS AT ONE

    GO. IT WON'T WORK.

    Educational Software Technologies has come up with an innovative

    idea to remember words. After studying more than 100 words, it

    becomes difficult to correlate the meaning with the word. Once you

    are thorough with a particular box (say box 1), you can open

    crossword puzzle 1 and solve it for further practice.
