What to do and what not to do...

DO comment on difficulty of tests in general. EXAMPLE: "Man, that Math test was easier than last year, but the Lang and Lit was ridiculous."

DO NOT comment on the specific questions. EXAMPLE: "What was up with #38 on the Music test? It's so obviously Celia Cruz covering Mozart!"

DO NOT comment on how topics were weighted within subject areas. EXAMPLE: "Was it just me, or did all the novel questions deal with the first two chapters?"

Not everyone takes the same tests at the same time, so discussion of specific questions or the weight of topics can lead to intrepid board readers gaining an advantage over their fellows with such information. Also, it's a violation of the Code of Honor you signed in order to compete.

Thank you and good posting!

Friendly reminder: follow the Code of Honor. Please don't discuss anything beyond the difficulty of the tests in general.
