List of Essential Resources (alpha)

Post by AKKOLADE » Wed Apr 22, 2009 1:08 pm

This is very much a Work in Progress.

1. Major Question Providers & National Organizations

High School

HSAPQ - High school question provider

NAQT - High school question provider, hosts High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT)

PACE - Hosts National Scholastics Championship (NSC)

College

ACF - Hosts four major events a year, including ACF Nationals

NAQT - Question provider, hosts Intercollegiate Championship Tournament (ICT)

2. Question Archives

High School

Quiz Bowl Packets - Excellent archive

College

Collegiate Quiz Bowl Packets

ACF Question ARchive

ACFdb - a search engine for the ACF Question Archive

Stanford Packet Archive - mostly out of date, but still valuable

X. Basic Glossary of Quiz Bowl Terminology

Hey everyone.

This is old and badly needs updated, not to mention completion. Please post your favorite resources in this thread and I will add them in the first post as soon as I can.

Please add NHBB's high school sites to this - www.historybowl.com and www.hs.historybee.com. If you could add www.geographyolympiad.com to this as well, even better.

Quinterest.org would probably be the most important new development. (QuizbowlDB is pretty lackluster in comparison.)

Even if there are concerns about the maturity of lobby and the benefits of memorizing clues, it is an excellent way to practice against other people or just play a lot of questions.

There's a glossary there, along with a concise rules doc, tips for writing, etc.

adding "site:quizbowlpackets.com" to a google search query works as a packet search for whatever quinterest or qbdb lacks

The new Quizbug option on Quinterest is a nice hybrid between Protobowl/Quinterest.

Neg 5 offers live tournament results. It worked very well at Charter Challenge last Saturday.

Is there something wrong with the link for the culture index? It won't load on mobile at all.

With regards to index, it is useful though outdated and kind of hard to navigate through since a lot of tge information is jumbled together in huge blocks of text. I would recommend it's use for those trying to gather a list of what to learn about in a certain category, but would use the index as a supplement rather than a core.

I assume you are talking about the "You Gotta Know" guides, not the frequency or Power Up materials they produce, as those are a commercial product. If that's the case, you can go directly to NAQT's web site and use your right click to download the pages in question.

There were ACE Camp Study guides posted on their old website, but I believe the link for them went dead three to four years ago. I actually have one downloaded on a flashdrive from high school. It was from a religion class taught by Mike Sorice, iirc., (circa 2009 roughly).

I compiled a Google Drive folder with most of the ACE Study Guides here:

It has everything except Organic Functional Groups, British Prime Ministers, and Jewish Holidays I believe.
