    Default How to make a quiz in Java?

    Hi guys!

    I'm new to Java and know a little bit about it and honestly I don't want to learn anymore about it. I'm currently an Apprentice Millwright and I've got a cd with 600 questions on it to help study for the millwright exams and I would like to make a quiz in Java for it. I've got Netbeans installed so I'm ready to go.

    I would prefer for the quiz to be in different sections, maybe 100 questions a section and when I'm done I would like to see my score in a percentage and which questions I got wrong.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    How long are the questions and answers? Do you want a multiple choice format: question on top and choices below?

    I don't want to learn anymore about it.
    What does that mean? You'll have to make a complete list of what you know for anyone to suggest using your existing knowledge for the project.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I was hoping someone already had the code and all I had to do was fill it in. I don't know much, only a little about if and else statements, booleans and integers.

    That won't be enough to write a program.

    Get some 3X5 cards, write the question on front and answer on back.

    That's why I'm asking how to make it.

    What good would it be if I suggested a way, if the requirements didn't include only the java statements you know how to use?

    Would your quiz program use prompts on a console using keyboard input
    or GUI with labels and mouse click input?

    Do you know how to read from files and separate the lines?

    Your best bet would be to try and find a ready-made one on the internet. Doing it yourself will take time and patience if you aren't that far along in Java.

    Perhaps look in one of the better known Java books to see if they use this quiz idea as an example. I seem to recall one called Quiz Card Builder from "Head First Java".
