|Does it really work?|
As you repeat the same words, numbers, etc., you are forced to recall the information, and every time you do, it becomes more accessible.
People noticed this a long time ago and it is no surprise that common sayings such as "practice makes perfect" are so popular.
A repetition-based program like Quiz-Buddy does not require a lot of mental effort, so it can be used almost at any time of the day. Use it once a day or ten times a day, whatever is more convenient!
Don't expect to memorize a hundred foreign words in one day. Set reasonable expectations, be consistent, and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results!
|I wish I could learn while away from my computer.|
A: There are two ways to continue learning while you are away from your PC:
If you have a Palm PDA, download Quiz-Buddy for Palm. It comes with several built-in Q&A-lists. You can also easily export your own Q&A-lists from Quiz-Buddy for Windows to Quiz-Buddy for Palm.
Another, low-tech way to enjoy Quiz-Buddy while away from your PC is to print out flashcards by selecting "Print Flashcards" from the "File" menu.

A: A couple of minutes if you want to use only ready-to-go Q&A-lists. About five minutes more if want to edit and create your own lists.

|How can I enter non-English characters?|

|Can small children use Quiz-Buddy?|
