Haven't Scratched the Surface Yet!

This is the 19th in a series of many general knowledge quizzes designed to get you ready to impress.

I would suggest that you start with the first quiz and take it as many times as necessary to score 100%. When you are ready, move on to the next quiz and repeat. There are 25 questions in each quiz, so you can take them while you munch on lunch.

If you are home schooled in upper-grade levels, or are a home school parent, you should also find the quizzes to be useful in your daily curriculum. I expect to create about 150 general knowledge quizzes, so if your student can pass my quizzes, they should be able to do well on the tests that they will see later in life.

Good luck!
