Seems impossible to tell topic based on this. The ww2 year was so easy sad.gif

I ask this every year but has anyone done the conceptual and automatic quiz stuff? Demidec has been great but they are definitely written by kids

Are you referring to the materials available on usad.enlyght.com?

About to start today's finals so I'm too lazy to answer this for myself and was hoping someone could research it more quickly... Are the prices the same for materials or are there any changes worth noting?

The same pages on the 2018 order form are that exact same design/color (pure green). Looks like no playful hinting this time around. D:

The digital curriculum package is still $700. Literally everything else has gone up in price. :/

No. This is the year of Delaware and Podiatry. I feel it and I'm going to look up the odds for it on offshore betting sites.

Hmmm...

No wagering on USAD topics, but I did drop a fiver on Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of The Philippines becoming the next pope after Francis I.

Also noticed same shop was giving same odds for Bono and Father Dougal Maguire, 500-1... I lol'd...

I guess I am but more of referring to the PDF I guess but yea. Glad yo see USAD learned from video game companies- keep the base thing the same but everything else costs more.

They'll also have content flavor packs that you can install on your decathletes to give them distinctive period costumes.
