Question Online test scrips

Hi,
Has anyone developed or know where I can find some information on developing an online test. Preferably in PHP? I want to give my customers the opportunity to try an online test before booking themselves in for the real thing.
There will be a database of about 1000 questions with multiple choice answers.
Is an SQL database the way? I have heard of Trandumper as a text alternative but have no idea which will be best.
I have found a number of scripts available for download but haven
't a clue which would best suit my needs. Hence my question here.
Thanks in anticipation.
Regards
Clive

Thanks guys, I was leaning that way.
Not sure my PHP or SQL skills are good enough yet. Does anyone know of any scripts around I could use as a basis??
Regards
Clive

Question Test = Form?

Why don't you create a form that is is simply called "test"? I don't know how long the test will be, but you could do that.

Good luck!

Found this tutorial that might help. It just uses POST methods but can easily be extended to MySQL when you get better at it.

Thanks Jaymo and Kremo, the idea looks interesting. I'v had to shelve it for a while but will look at the idea and come back here to let you know how I got on.
