**Review (Electron User)**

This is one of those programs you might tend to dismiss on first sight. However on persevering I became quite addicted to it. The idea is to choose a mathematical subject out of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You are then asked for the level of difficulty - there are three.

Now sit back and prepare yourself for the next sixty seconds of quickfire
mental arithmetic questions as the computer prepares its barrage. I found I
could cope well with the addition and multiplication questions, but when it
came to subtraction or division I has some catching up to do.

That's where the program came into its own for me. Due to its competitive
nature you feel that you can't stop - not yet anyway, just got to beat that
last score.

After a while the questions became easier for me and I moved to level three.
The levels of difficulty are well worked out. Each time you achieve a maximum
score of 39 you move up a level.

On level 3 I have as yet been unable to better my high score of 27. One
complaint I have about this program though is that in the rush to type your
answer in, it is often easy to hit a wrong key and this causes a point to be
deducted from your score. I suppose this helps to train your reflexes but I
still found it somewhat frustrating.

This is an addictive game, that is both fun and educational for children and
adults alike.
