I use a combination of resources. Examgen works fairly well, but (in my opinion) is overpriced for what it provides  not much ability to edit questions. It's essentially just old regents exam questions; you can turn multiple choice off. I also use mathematica for writing questions that I need to provide a graph for. This was the first year I used it, and I did my precalc and calc finals using it. Steep learning curve if you were to use it. And, for wha it's worth, the more you use equation editor, the faster you become. There are a few shortcut keys that help: ctrl h (for high) to put in an exponent ctrl l (for low) subscript ctrl f (fraction) ctrl r (root) for square roots ctrl ( does parenthesis that are automatically sized I'm sure there are others, but I haven't bothered to learn them. Those first 4 have saved me a ton of time. I looked for others; ctrli for integral sign ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nysmathab" to majordomo@mathforum.org * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID38 ******************************************************************* ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nysmathab" to majordomo@mathforum.org * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=338 *******************************************************************
