This is what I have for answers. The only one (I think) that I'm not certain about is #3. Let me know if you see anything that needs correcting.

I agree, seemed much more difficult than previous tests I have taken.

Whew!

I agree. I think I passed, but still, it seemed tough.

I had a brain freeze or two, and a technical problem on one question. I typed in an answer to the V.P. question, then changed my mind and retyped. When the next question appeared, my answer was already in the blank - so I don't know if I typed it in late or if it carried over, or what.

Interesting. I had the opposite impression. Now I'm very curious about what the general opinion of it will be around here.

Me four. I don't know if fatherhood and middle age are slowing me down, but I think this was my worst score in a decade.

I had a lot of brain farts, I had a strong finish though, so maybe...by the skin of my teeth....

That was brutal. There is no way I made 35. I said emu instead of rhea (noticed "South American too late) and simply could not dredge "Brave New World" out of my head.
Plus, I didn't realize that you had to click in the answer box on the first question. I might have gotten that one, but I was too late.
I am stupid, Stupid, STUPID!

Oh, and two questions from the "current events" practice test showed up. I knew one of them, could not remember the other.

Felt fairly easy to me, but usually when I think that about a test, I tanked it.

I *think* I got 35. I'm still kicking myself for blanking on fortune cookie until a second too late.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Yes, of course. I always get them confused, but tonight I couldn't think of either of them.
