                 SAT Vocabulary with iPhone App
 New app introduces three powerful learning techniques to help students maximize their SAT
                                          scores

Malibu, CA, February 19, 2013 – High school students have a new choice when it comes to
mastering SAT vocabulary. Veritas Prep today announced the availability of a new free app, called
SAT Vocabulary by Veritas Prep to make learning common SAT level words easier. The app allows
students to play games, take quizzes and master important vocabulary words through memory
retrieval instead of memorization, all on their iPhone. The SAT Vocabulary app is a complement to
the other free online SAT prep resources offered by Veritas Prep.

The iPhone app includes stimulating features that will keep students engaged on the
path to success. Features include:

* An innovative scoring system that helps students track their progress toward becoming a
“master of vocab”

* A database of over 500 commonly used SAT level words

* Sentences that show students how words are used, not just their meanings

* Missions and games to challenge students (including brutally hard levels for those vocab
masters)

The app also utilizes three powerful and proven learning techniques that help ensure students
retain more of what they learn.

Adaptive Learning: The app keeps track of how well students know each word and emphasizes
words students need to work on so they feel comfortable with the material they already do know.

Spaced Repetition: A technique that exposes students to words gradually over time so that they
become a part of long-term memory learning.

Retrieval Practice: Students are asked to retrieve words from memory through exercises like
writing sentences for words, which promotes long-term memory.

“High school students are busy people. Between academics and extra-curricular activities, they
are always on the go. The app makes SAT prep easy to do anywhere, at anytime. Plus, this app
employs learning techniques that encourage a deep understanding of new words rather than
simple memorization which will help students achieve their highest possible score,” said Chad
Troutwine, co-founder and CEO of Veritas Prep.

The SAT Vocabulary by Veritas Prep can be found in the Apple store by searching for Veritas Prep.
