Hi all
I'm a student, and I've read that its a good idea to revise on the go, not just near an exam.
The best way for me to do this, would be to create custom questions and multiple choice answers.
I'm sure I've seen something like this before, but alas I cannot find it now.
So I turn to the Donation Coder forum for help, the best place for finding software when a few hours of googling fails.
This is a real challenge, as I'm looking for such software, that runs on my windows mobile device!
This way, I can revise on the long train journey home!

Any suggestions at all?
If not, know of anyone who could code a little app?
Sure it cant be that complicated, however I'm only just learning how to program.

just in case I draw ALL blanks on this, where would I go to start learning to program for Windows Mobile?

Many many many thanks to everyone here at DC! The only forum I trust for software! :D

I use MCards and find it works well. It is freeware. It also uses Leitner’s system. (It has both an English and a German UI)

Additionally, I use FlashcardExchange when online. It also used the Leitner system.

That does look good! closest thing ive seen to what I want.
Maybe I'm really stupid, but i don't understand the test section of it.
Does it give me the results of my test? how does it tell me if i got the question right or wrong?

For testing:

You answer the question in your mind then you hit the play button [>] to reveal the answer. If you got it correct, you click the green checkmark. If you got it wrong, you click the red 'X'. You go through all of the cards and it will grow a red bar from the left and a green bar from the right until they meet in the center.

In your case, if you want multiple choice, you will have to include the multiple answers with the question. Then have A, B, C, D... provided as the correct answer.

p.s. I suggest you don't study using multiple-choice answers. For anything. Just use the question and the correct answer. You will understand the topic better. With multiple choice, you might never learn the correct answer as you spend time and energy memorizing incorrect answers.

I wasnt sure if i was missing something or not, but now you explain it, it makes sense.
Ill defiantly have to give it a go....

Just tried, and I cant install the trial of the desktop thing to create my own databases. Darn.

i tried to run the installer and nothing happens. I'm not talking the latest version, talking 2.2. Turns out one of my friends has a key for 2.2 he can let me have, as he dosent use it anymore. Otherwise I'd have 2 buy it, and as a student, I cant afford to buy software I don't know if Id use or not.
