Thanks for adding the new ones! 100% with 12 seconds left, phew!

It's a long time since I did Chemistry at school and didn't have a song to remember them with, so quite please with my score of 38. But obviously 'could do better!'
Dec 14, 2012
(57)
Got 51. After I got all the ones I could remember off the top of my head, I got several more just by staring at my keyboard and trying to think of more elements that started with each letter. Still missed several really easy ones to make up for the hard ones I remembered.
Dec 14, 2012

Got them all with 2:32 left. I though I knew them in order, but I messed up a couple times.

same here but i got 4:18 left cause i was looking at the periodic table a few hours ago

I typed in "Einsteinium" for a laugh!

Consistently between 80-90.

Down to all of them with 1:42 left. And all in order. =)

It would be easier if you included the symbols in the chart.

wth?
Feb 12, 2013

Yeah, I could name a lot more with the Chemical symbol, but without, my brain decided to forget even commonly known elements like lead and platinum.

Cracked 100 (103/114=90%)!
Jan 9, 2013

Never took Chemistry before and got 35. Curium was a total guess, just figured they would have named something after Curie. Then when the answers showed up I felt dumb because I had in fact heard of almost every other one on the chart, except for most with high atomic weights.
Jan 12, 2013
(56)
If you add up all the right answers from several separate attempts I get 55. :)
Nov 3, 2013

wow, i got 94 and i'm in the seventh grade. though i forgot some of the matalloids, i'm pretty good. we'relearning the periodic table of elements in science too. so thats a bonus =)

actively learning something makes you much more likely to remember it. Back when I was in chemistry class, I had the first four rows completely memorized, and a good percentage of the rest of it, too. Now, I only got 31 of them. :( I am shame to famiry.

Sad, really sad, that you waste those incredible typing skills doing quizzes. If I could type that fast and accurately, I'd be making serious bucks doing data input for a living.

84 on my first try, kind of hard without the symbols there.

I remembered these using the song. Thanks Tom Lehrer, also I thought it was spelled "Neodynium" with an N so I missed that one.

A few days of practice and I can now get them all in the correct order. :D

Chemical engineering has led me to accidentally memorize the periodic table. Good stuff.

I found that learning all of the elements in order is the easiest way to go. Reason being is that most people have at least a vague idea of what the table is supposed to look like, and where certain elements should go, so all you have to do is fill in the holes with the ones you are less familiar with. I have been able to retain the knowledge with very little maintenance as well. I tried to learn them in alphabetical order, or elements by first letter, but I found that to be more difficult. I hope this helps. The test is fine the way it is. No need to give us symbols. Learn the elements in order, and challenge yourself. :)

112/114... Forgot Darmstadtium and Roentgenium. Also, can you please make some of the elements with harder spelling have additional accepted answers. I spent maybe a full minute fuming at my computer when it wouldn't accept "Praesodymium," "Prasedymium," "Praseodemium..."

Crap, they gave those last few actual names now! I thought for sure their "unununium" placeholder names would work...

how useful is memorizing these elements? wonder how beneficial would it be to know them all...anyways I luv this quiz My favorite !!!! I would really appreciate it if same quiz would be invented except for the elements names, we could enter their symbols!! thank you for this awesome periodic table quiz...

Got 41, would have had 47 if I'd spelled those six correctly, and I cannot say how proud I am of myself. I'm sitting here astonished because I thought I remembered ZERO% of the periodic table. It's amazing how your brain retains stuff.

Got 106/114 and I haven't started school yet. Some say I have a certain gift for matters of intellect and the scientific world.. Much like one has common sense, it is the sense of knowledge that comes to me naturally. I type this as I suckle on my mother's teet

finally got to 112, being a 15.5-yrs-old student strong in chemistry. Missing Darmstadium (110) and Copernicium (112).
Jun 11, 2014

Should be "Darmstadtium", not "Darmstadium"
Jun 11, 2014

Now 113/114. Missing Dubnium.

HaHa. 114/114. Never give up, and you can do it!

100% correct with 4:04 to spare !! I should get out more shouldn't I ?! - I had the urge to learn the periodic table 3 days ago and now I have succeeded. What could I do with this useful information ?
Jun 16, 2014

All with 3:34 left!
Jun 25, 2014

Took a few tries, but finally got 100% Probably a good thing my major at college is very chemistry oriented; otherwise I wouldn't have heard of most of these!
Jul 1, 2014

13 correct. I shocked myself that I got over seven.

As we add more, it seems that Scientist+ium is a pretty good way to go.

The symbol for Bismuth is incorrect. The second letter should be a lower case i, not an upper case one (or a lower case L, as the case may be).
