orangesquid's Journal: quiz programs... and an interesting bookmark manager

Journal by orangesquid

[these are all fm proj names]
bookmarks: sresi - php and text interface, import and export mozilla, del.icio.us, .... looks promising!

now, the quiz/testing programs; i'm hoping to find one of these that i can use to train myself with the dozens of equations, dozens of device types, dozens of band diagrams, dozens of differential equations and their solutions, handful of derivations involving the Schrödinger equation, and hundreds of variables that I am required to be very familiar with (and in many cases have memorized and understood in extreme detail) for an undergrad course at univ. of delaware (=ELEG340) that teaches the mathematical relationship between atomic crystal lattices and electron wave mechanics, and semiconductor device behavior (p-n diodes, Schottky diodes, HEMTs, MESFETs, BJTs, and plenty of others...).

quizcards - flash cards, group things together, allows graphics (maybe i can import equations drawn with LaTeX?)
quiz - simple multiple choice questions
akfquiz - learning game creator; text, graphic, web interfaces
quizzy - looks like 'quiz' but perhaps more flexibile/mature
inquisition - sophisticated and graphical, create exams (more than just quiz questions) and train on them
jvlt - vocab learning tool, probably great for vocab but not for engineering classes
quizdrill - flash cards, multiple choice, adapts to what you get wrong, aimed for vocab memorization

quizcards might be my best bet. akfquiz and inquisition look neat, but might involve a lot of work just to create self-quizzes, given their sophistication.
