Where do you guys think the best place to start is? Does anybody else start with the country they are from, e.g., I'm from Canada so I start there and work my way down. Usually do Africa after b/c it's a little trickier for me.

I start with Oceania, because it's the most difficult for me. Then I work west hitting Asia, then Europe, then Africa, then North & South America.

I start from Oceania, though Asia, Europe and the top of Africa, north and south America. I do the rest of Africa and central America last, probably because I don't know as many from those areas.
Mar 4, 2015

I do North America, South America, Africa, what I know of Europe and Asia, and then Oceania. Then I work from there

I usually start with Oceania, then move to North and south America, Europe, Asia and finially Africa. Although I do have some that I group together - Germany, Ghana, Gabon, Gambia - Kosovo Kenya - The Guineas, The 5 M's in Europe The Stans etc.

I start with A and go through the alphabet, usually by continent.

Normally I start with Africa because I know that there are bound to be small countries that I'll forget. Then I'll do North American and South America at the same time, then Asia, followed by Europe. I do Oceania last because I've got those countries pretty much stored in the back of my head.

HERE'S A TRICK I JUST FIGURED OUT! You don't need spaces. E.g, guineabissau, stkitts, marshallislands, burkinafaso, and so on..There's roughly 24 of these. Give it a shot!

What short cuts are there apart from CAR (central African republic) UAE (united arab emirates) Congo for both Congos........? 1.35 left.........
Mar 6, 2015
QuizMom
(28)
Not really a shortcut, but there are a few that I always do together, even though geographically they're nowhere near each other. I find it keeps me from forgetting, and also helps my speed. Tonga & Togo Mali & Malawi Maldives & Moldova Comoros & Cameroon Mauritius & Mauritania Libya & Liberia All the Guineas The Saints (Kitts, Nevis & Lucia) The U's (Palau, Nauru, Tuvalu, Vanatu) The Stans and their sister Jan (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgystan, Azerbaijan)

I love the Stans and Jan! Great Idea. I start with North America, then South America, then Oceania, Then Europe, and I usually jump between Africa and Asia. I do scandanavia plus together (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands) like others said- Maldives & Moldova/Mauritania & Mauritius/Togo and Tonga All the Directions (N&S Korea, Sudan/South Sudan, South Africa, East Timor) After East Timor I always do Georgia Malaysia and Singapore are always together because I took a trip there. I always need to look at the map to remember China, which makes me think of Mongolia, then Japan. A lot of mental tricks that help me spring to others.

hey! I read this a while back and it really helps but I noticed on all of the saints you had (kitts, nevis, & lucia) It's actually Kitts, Vincent, & Lucia. The official name of St. Kitts is St. Kitts & Nevis. I see where you can get confused. Just wanted to let ya know

After Reading many comments I feel like an idiot but I can't get past 80 countries. Spelling is a big problem for me & also memory is terrible so after test is done I look at answer & see I knew many of the others just couldn't remember. So this Quiz is not only for fast typing as some have said but is also for memory & also for spelling. It is a great quiz- I try once a day & get better each time. Very useful tool for learning as well as its presented in a game type of set up. Thank you for whoever posted the Test. I teaching me a lot

Here's a hint while you're practicing: stop the timer with the link near the top. At least you can practice your memory without worrying about the time.

How can DR Congo have a 70% corrects, while Republic of Congo only have 69%. Does not both show up when you guess Congo?

Not everyone types "Congo". If you enter "DR Congo", you'll only get the one.

I'm a 'stupid American' hahaha, and we never really learned much geography (especially world geography) in school. I'm loving this! I get better every time, and made it to 119 this time. I also love the 'which country is this' ones. Sadly, I'm terrible at the middle east (which you would think I'd be good at since we're so keen on invading it), and Africa. But I'm still working!

Good quiz! I got a ways to go (still only 117/197), but it is obviously about speed typing rather than pure spatial and geographical knowledge. I'd love to see a Geography quiz where you actually had to FILL IN A BLANK MAP with ALL 197 nation names with some more leniency on time.

Quizmaster - please consider adding a few more dots for very small countries. At this scale, there are a handful that are all but impossible to see; e.g., East Timor, Kosovo, and Montenegro - and to a somewhat lesser extent, Macedonia, Kuwait, and Lebanon.
