Student Academic Study Links

  • NAQT "You Gotta Know":  These study lists include many topics that are commonly found in question sets, especially NAQT ones. 
  • Quiz Bowl Packets: Comprehensive site for old quiz bowl packets and a great source for study. Novice and freshman/sophomore packets will have easier questions. You can learn a lot by reading questions and paying attention to the early clues. Do not avoid the collegiate sets; that is where you can pick up great information for early hits.
  • HSAPQ Quiz Bowl Packets: - High School Academic Pyramid Questions maintains a site with their past question sets. Use these for study.
  • Torrey Pines: Database: - This resource allows you to search by category and difficulty to find the sort of tossups you need most to study. The site features two "play-along" functions, one of which hides the answers to tossups until you click on them, the other of which actually reveals words in the tossups one at a time so you can buzz in on your computer, give your answer, and see how you stack up against the competition.
  • Quizlet Study Cards: Thousands of sets of cards for study (many are on topics found in quiz bowl). 
  • Flashcard Exchange Study Cards: Tons of card sets for study and many are on topics pertinent to quiz bowl. The poetry class notes from ACE Camp this summer are listed as poetry "ace camp 2011".
  • Jeopardy Questions: Data base of thousands of past Jeopardy! questions organized chronologically. 
  • High School Quiz Bowl:  Many people enjoy looking through the forum to find out about upcoming tournaments and discussing quiz bowl issues through "threads". There are links to archived questions sets for middle, high school, and college on the forum's homepage.
  • Practice League:  Online Skype practice league that will be run by David Madden who does the National History Bee.  All are welcome to play; you have to email him to sign up and he takes the first 24 people.
