The 2016 Current Events/Pop Culture Study Guide (In Its Full Glory)

Post by Blue Lion » Mon Jan 02, 2017 7:20 pm

Happy New Year, JBoarders!

As you may know, I'm one of the contributors to Volante's Current Events Study Guide, which I've found invaluable in boning up for online tests (and, more recently, Learned League).

Earlier this year, Volante suggested that there be a new Study Guide each calendar year. The idea makes sense, especially since we don't know when the next online qualifying tests will be given.

I've taken the entries from the 2016 Study Guide, added some information from pop culture (entertainment awards, for instance), and arranged them in a 29-page PDF document.

Follow this link to see the 2016 Study Guide. (You'll need Adobe Reader on your computer to read it).

A much-deserved tip of the hat goes to my wife, who posts here as Aunt_Ija, for her efforts in formatting the Study Guide and putting it online. Thank you!

Feel free to comment with suggestions or corrections. Meanwhile, I've started work on the 2017 Study Guide.

Thanks. I'll be sure to check the 2016 and 2017 guides in the weeks before TCONA.
