Exclamation Exam Preparation Software

Has anyone found good software out there that has old exam questions and answers? I had an old DOS version of something a while back, but it is outdated. The only thing that I could find was some software at http://www.rules-study.com/basketball.html, but you can't download it. Would be great to hear back asap as I am taking the test Monday night (11/4). Thanks.

UPDATE:
After further searching, I found an exam preparation tool online at http://www.rusty1.com/Officiating/quizstart.htm. Just thought some of you might find this helpful.

ARS is all there is. You have to order the CD-ROM. It can't be downloaded.

I never could see the need for such software, whether on CD-ROM or elsewhere. It seems to me that the best thing is to read the rule book and the case book (NFHS) and to concentrate while reading it. It also helps me to read the information analytically and try to visualize the type of questions that could be developed. Good luck.

I've used this software for the past 3 or 4 years and I like it. I will often use the CD when I am having lunch and the software will allow you to "tailor" what you are looking for and/or reviewing. For example, if you select a subject that you are having trouble with (held ball, traveling, whatever), you can set it up to only present these types of questions. It will also record your score for that particular session and will also keep a running score for a given period of time. Not a bad investment for $15.00. I travel quite a bit in my job and I keep my rule book and case book with me and I review them a lot while flying, but I also like the software.

Interesting point, while flying back from CA last week, a lady sitting next to me saw me reading the rule book and commented that she didn't think officials ever read the rule book. I told her that I used to be one of those uneducated parents who thought the same thing until I read the rule book and found out how little I did know. No more comments from her.
