How's your geography knowledge.

Postby S » Tue May 02, 2006 7:06 pm

Here's the National Geographic geography site CNN reported on during the story of young Americans pathetic knowledge of geography. Why don't young adults have a better geography IQ and is it really important to have one?

I'm good at geography, but I missed several of the smaller nations that never make the news. I've heard of them, but get their location mixed up.
Time limits on quizes prevent 100% answering of all questions on some of the continents, maybe not if you have high speed internet. Try your luck at http://207.24.89.133/global_iq.html.

The quiz was fun. I was shocked at the answer to the immigration
question-33% of U.S. population growth in one year? :shock:

It was an interesting test. I couldn't find my test % was in relation to other test takers. I know that I answered 18 out of 20 correctly.

You did a lot better than I did, Willard. I missed 5 or 6.
Geography skills are getting rusty :oops:
