what do you call a book that only contains questions and answers, no other stuff. Maybe "questionnaire" is one but I think questionnaires only contain questions.

  • A Question Bank usually includes the respective correct answers as well, not just questions. – Kris Sep 21 '13 at 13:03

Possible terms include:

  • quiz book - Implies that it's a book containing quizzes or tests.
  • workbook - Often accompanies a student textbook, and contains supplementary questions/problems to answer/solve.
  • puzzle book - Contains a bunch of puzzle problems/questions for entertainment.

A study guide or prep guide also often contains questions and answers, but not exclusively.

I'd call it a catechism, in the same non-religious way they speak of "Java Developer's Bible".

The other option could be a handbook (the option brought by O'Henry's The Handbook Of Hymen).

Informally, a "Q & A". Otherwise, I'd be inclined towards "catechism" as well, except for the religious connotations: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/catechism
