Description

Help prepare yourself for New York State's Earth Science Regents exam with this application. You can use it to quiz yourself with 10 question quizes that draw from over 200 multiple-choice questions from past Regents exams. Like the Regents exams they are taken from, some questions allow you to use the Earth Science Reference Tables. Because of this, you can chose to take one of three kinds of quizes: (1) all questions, (2) questions that need the ESRT, and (3) questions that do not need the ESRT.

The program also includes a set of flash cards for 477 vocabulary words. These words were carefully selected to reflect words from the New York State science standards and words that regularly show up on the Earth Science Regents exams. Great effort was taken to write definitions for the words that were simple, to the point, and reflected the specific earth science meaning of the words.

This is my first application for the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad. If you have any questions, feature requests, or comments, please contact me. I hope this helps you review for the exam and good luck on your exam day!
