Help me find a typing-software styled memorization quiz for times tables

I am looking for a quiz program that will interactively help me practice my times tables, rehearsing the answers I get wrong a lot and waiting until I make progress before adding new questions to learn.

I'm taking the CBEST which includes long division, which I'm fine at but worried about running out of time on since I never memorized my multiplication tables and no calculators are allowed!
I'm remembering Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing, which started with A S D F until I got it and then slowly introduced more letters, always making me practice the ones I got wrong a lot until I had it nailed. I need something like that.
Basically, I need a program that has an internal understanding of what questions you have memorized, so that it knows when to move on, while still maintaining the memorized ones with occasional reminders.
Are there any quiz platforms that allow you to enter your own questions? This sort of rehearsal/practice method seems really useful for a lot of situations and I could really use it for every time I ever need to study (e.g. vocab, verb conjugation, etc!)
