zenith (noun): the highest point, peak
Zenith Tutoring (noun): the somewhat immodestly named company responsible for very immodestly naming its app "The Zenith of SAT Vocabulary Flashcards". Founded by a cadre of dapper MIT grads currently residing in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Each flashcard includes:
• Definitions. Made from 100% words-we’re-pretty-sure-you-already-know. Guaranteed to not include the words autochthon, nikhedonia, or yemeless.
• Drawings. These not only make your time spent studying vocabulary more bearable, but also allow our cards to double as artwork for your next museum opening.
• Sentences. We put words in sentences. It's thrilling.
• Helpful hints. These include useful etymologies, as well as similar words in Latin, Spanish, and French. If you're paying attention, you can learn lots of helpful Greek and Latin roots.
• Related words. We provide other forms of the word in question, for all your various part-of-speech needs.
• Synonyms. For those of you who just can’t get enough vocabulary goodness, we have synonyms. Three synonyms per word times 100 words makes for 300 bonus words.
• Literary quotations. People who write fancy books like to use fancy words. We provide you with proof of this phenomenon.
We also provide you with flashcard and list modes, as well as quizzes to test your knowledge.
Our words have been carefully hand-selected, much like the ingredients for a hipster's homemade artisanal cheese. Before writing any sentences or drawing any penguins, we scoured every published SAT for vocabulary words, surveyed students to determine their familiarity with each word, and wrote an algorithm to create our final list of 100 words you're likely to see on the SAT but unlikely to know.
Though 100 words might seem too modest, we've stuck with a small, manageable collection of words because we've found that gargantuan vocabulary lists are about as helpful as a punch in the face. Being overly ambitious has its place in failed Arctic expeditions and home improvement projects; when it comes to the SAT, however, actually knowing 100 words is much more helpful than telling yourself you're going to learn thousands of words and then spending your study time on the internet looking at pictures of cats.
