Need Assistance

What Chris said.

But even a simple application, whether the devil is in the coding or in the look and feel, requires a lot of work. Especially if you want it all to work nicely. If you are a beginner, you will need to do a lot of work, learning, before you even start to do a lot of work.

Where are you with the project? Is it (I hope) sort of working but not well? Or does not look the way you want it? If so, good news, this forum can really help.

If not, and you are just starting out, this still should not discourage you. It might only take weeks to get up to a level where you can start asking questions here that will greatly help you.

When you were assigned this task, did you already know LiveCode? Your question indicates to me that perhaps you did not. This is not a program, like Excel, where you can get going rapidly, within its limits, with a minimum of knowledge. It is a programming and authoring environment, where you can do anything you want to.

That sounds like something well-suited to LiveCard's strengths, and would
work well with a card-based application that presents the desired
information in a flashcard-style presentation and ends with a series of Q&A
cards. The hard part won't be the coding (that would be fairly minimal), the
time will mostly be spent getting the look and content of the application
how you want it, I'm sure.
