Guide Review - World of Where - Geography Software

World of Where was developed by 17 year-old geography student Zac Cohan from Sydney, Australia. This software is a lot of fun and educational, too. The software (which is a very quick download and sells for a mere $9.95) allows you to test yourself on country or state locations, capital cities, and flags. You can test yourself on all continents or select a specific continent for a quick exam.

For example, you'll have a colorful map of South America and World of Where will ask you to click on Brazil. It's a bit more challenging if you test yourself on cities and try to pinpoint the location of Brasilia (don't worry, though, you can change modes to get the answer correct if you click anywhere in Brazil).

In addition to major world regions, the software also tests the states and provinces of the U.S., Australia, Italy, Germany, and Canada. The software will also track high scores as you watch yourself improve in your identification of countries and capitals.

Zac created World of Where to help himself learn geography. It's a product that I can highly recommend to help you or others in your family learn geography, too.
