Multiple-Choice General Knowledge Quiz and Study Guide for Students and Homeschoolers (#14)

Updated on January 10, 2014

Use These Quizzes as Study Guides

If you are looking for boring school quizzes that all ask the same questions over and over (and over and over), you have come to the wrong place. You might find some familiar questions, but every day I dig into dozens of subjects to find the most relevant information and put that information in the form of a multiple-choice quiz. If you are home-schooled, you should really enjoy these quizzes and treat them as a study guide of sorts.

If you don't know the correct answer, just take a guess. If you're wrong, repeat the quiz until the information becomes quickly accessible from the rote memory part of your brain.

Below you will find the questions for the next quiz (without the answers) so you'll know what to expect.

Have fun and good luck.
