To access PrepZilla’s content, users must first tap the “Select Topic” button from the main screen to choose the subject that they wish to study. Next, users tap the “Self-Study” button or “Who Knows” button. If the “Self-Study” button is tapped, users can prepare for an upcoming test by completing quizzes or playing the Zombie Game aligned to the topic, which requires users to answer questions. After completing either a quiz or game, PrepZilla provides users with an accuracy report of their performance, and users are allowed to review incorrect answers. Users can also track their results with the “Analytics” button to see their statistics for answering questions and areas of strength aligned to question categories. If users tap the “Who Knows” button, PrepZilla allows them to challenge friends to answer questions in an interactive environment.
