Ok. Step one. Do the countries of the world quiz that is on this site, then slowly memorise them. That's what I did. Also doing it with Google maps is a help. Sorry this is a cheat's way but it is successful and I doubt all of you did this without some help from trusty google

Wouldn't it be easier to start smaller? I'm taking the individual continent ones to help with the Countries of the World quiz. On my first try here I had only gotten Morocco, Egypt, Madagascar, and South Africa. But by repetition and mnemonic devices I'd gotten them all by 3rd or 4th try.

Easiest way to learn all the countries in a region or on a continent is get a map and spend lots of hours looking at it. Get a colour map where each country is a different colour, that makes it easy to distinguish different countries. Memorise a few countries at a time, like border countries gradually. Once you've got it locked in there, its there

I am an Egyptian and honestly before taking this quiz, I had no idea about the location of most of the Countries. I knew just like the Arab countries and few scattered countries here and there. Of course South Africa is so easy. I know Asia better than Africa may be because we are closer to the Gulf... But, anyway thanks to this quiz now I know my continent.

So, I do better with the reverse of this (given the name, find the country). After four tries of doing this quiz as it's given, I still couldn't get all of them, so I finally just went down the list, clicked that country and the matching name, and got 100% with 3:20 left.

The official short name of the Republic of The Gambia is The Gambia, not Gambia. Calling it Gambia is just wrong, fix it, please.

If I am not mistaken the origin of one lies in moors and the other is named after a person, prince Maurits van Oranje. (By the dutch, when the french took over they called it isle the france, then the UK was in charge and it got its old name back again)

So as similar looking as they are, the names have nothing to do with each other. Plus it was not the french that named it (it's current name, it had been called other things before)
