Abstract. A PowerPoint presentation that functions as a review quiz for students in second-semester freshman chemistry laboratory, in the format of the television game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is described. My students and I have “played” the quiz during laboratory recitation periods in the week before final examinations for the past two academic years. The quiz has sustained several modifications and upgrades in that time and exists now in an entertaining yet academically beneficial form. The PowerPoint file may be downloaded at or at The Chemical Educator’s Web site.
