Do I have to sign on to use PTE Vocabulary in 10 Days?
Yes, please sign on at first because your study data and statuses are saved at the cloud. Only after you sign on successfully, the app can retrieve or keep your data correctly. If you don't have an account of examword.com yet, please register one from Sign-On. An account of examword.com (English Test Vocabulary) is suitable for all web apps in this site, and this app is free.
Do I have to follow the app's assignments day by day?
Yes, because each day's assignment relies on finished words of previous days. It is dynamically produced based on your current progress. It means if you finished Day 3 yesterday, you should do Day 4 now. At this time, Day 1 - Day 3 will be closed, and Day 5 - Day 10 aren't available.
How should I select statuses for each word? Can I modify occasional errors in selection?
At all assignment pages, you have three options for each word: New, means you don't know yet, need to learn; Known, means you already know, skip it forever; Need Review, means you want to review in future. You can set and change status at assignment pages. Besides, at the Candidate List page, you can adjust any word's status for any reason, such as correcting wrong selections.
What is Skim Known in the app?
More or less, you already know or half-know some words in a candidate list. To focus on real new words, you should pick them out on Day 1 and Day 2. This phase is called Skim Known. If you mark a word as known, it won't appear again in future; if as need-review, it will occur to review per 2 or 3 days from Day 3 to Day 10.
What is Build Words in the app?
Build Words is the main phase of PTE Vocabulary in 10 Days. It consists of Day 3 to Day 10. Each day you will have up to 150 new words to learn. (The actual number depends on the vocabulary that you have finished previously.) In addition to new words, you also need to review lots of previously-learned-words that are selected by built-in algorithms to refresh them.
What is Keep Warm in the app?
If You finish all ten days' assignments, but there is a gap to your PTE test day, you need to keep new learnings warm until the test is over. Keep Warm picks up words for you to review by built-in algorithms. You can use less time to refresh PTE vocabulary periodically.
Do I have to finish one day's assignment at one time, or in 24 hours?
No. For Skim or Review, each Submit is up to 60 words; for New words, one submitting is up to 10 words. So one day's assignment may consist of several jobs, you can do each of them independently. Besides, you can finish them more than 24 hours; it means you can use two or more calendar days for one day's assignment. Of course, you also can do two days' jobs in 24 hours. So, you can finish the whole course in 5 calendar days or 20 calendar days. It's totally at your own pace.
Submit jobs in Skim, Review, and New Words will change word status; Save in Candidate List also change word status. Is there any difference between them?
Yes, they both change word status. In the first case, the learning or reviewing activities have been saved as well. Built-in algorithms use these activities to select words to review in Build Words and Keep Warm phases. As for saving in the Candidate List, no activity data are kept except status change. So you cannot use Save to replace Submit job.
