You Won't Believe How Much You Really Know!

This is the second quiz in a series of many designed to aid home schooled students in upper grade levels.

If you repeat each quiz until you score 100%, you'll be surprised at what you'll retain using "rote memory" (learning or memorization by repetition).

At the end of this article, you will find the questions to the next quiz, but no possible answers are included. The questions are there to help you prepare for the test.

If you are looking for quizzes on specific subjects, I have links to some of those listed below in this article.

These general knowledge quizzes incorporate a bit of all of these subjects: science, geography, history, literature and social studies.

Good luck and have fun!

Questions on Quiz #3

Just in case you want to do a little studying before you take the next test, these are the questions (without the possible answers, of course) that you'll be facing. Look them over and do a little bit of research on the ones that you can't answer immediately. You won't always be able to answer immediately because you don't know what the four multiple-choice answers will be, but you can brush up on the subject in general.
