Is there an easier test kit than the Marine Lab by Red Sea

My test kit just arrived today. It's a Marine Lab by Red Sea. It's a liquid test. I read on here that those are better than the dip strips. But is there an easier kit. I know that most everything is awkward at first but argh! I had my son do the test again when he came home just to see if we came up with the same. We did, so I guess I'm doing it correctly. But is there an easier way. I can see now, that if I'm out of town and it's up to my husband...it won't get done

You can always get electric meters that automatically test for you. You just stick one end in the water and it tells you the levels. Only.. they are pretty expensive. But if you've got that kind of money to be throwing around on test meters.. then i'd say go for it.

I would get a link for you.. but for some reason google isn't working for me. If someone provides a link before i come back and edit this message, well then kudos. lol.

EDIT**

Ahh.. here we go. Feast your eyes.
