Efkasoft Drill Assistant 4.0 This is the ideal aid for students needing to learn material by heart. It is fun to use and it really does help with learning all sorts of things, including languages and the road rules in preparation for a driving test, to name but two examples. Excellent for throwing questions at yourself in random order to see if you can answer them all competently before taking an exam - you put the questions in so you can make tests as easy or as difficult as you wish.
