how would you go about it?
Kings and Queens of England plus dates.
Same for US Presidents and UK Prime Ministers.
Capitals of countries plus US States.
That would be a start, I reckon that would get you at least two.
National flags is another good bet.
Are you going on a tv gameshow? Cos I'm basically saying what I'd do if I was going on University Challenge.
Also, Oscar Winners/Years. And the periodic table. Noble Prize Winners.
the Gen Knowledge questions right, but then falter badly. And it got me thinking.......how would you go about getting prepared for a general knowledge test?
And currencies (+ ex-european currencies).
Also, countries' previous names.
then god help you my son. gold help you.
Horse racing tracks. For some reason they're really common in general knowledge questions.
Also nature stuff. Like mountains, rivers etc. Basically geography facts, as they're easy to memorise but pop up often.
Well, howsabout that? Borderline interesting at best to most people on here, I imagine. Gah! It's Friday night and I'm sitting copypasting things to DiS because I haven't had real human contact in a week. And essaywriting. Always essaywriting. WHEN WILL YOU END?
The post-2001 career of Frederick Chiluba is unlikely to come up in even the most extensive general knowledge quiz. Cos they're all, like, well Eurocentric and that, yeah? AMERICAN STATES.
Then go on the internet a bit.
