thanks for this useful quiz!
thanks geofreak! im in my school's geography bee and its tomorrew so im studying hard!
like it, thanx for interesting quiz
Question 1 is wrong: Norway does not border the Baltic Sea. Question 5 is wrong: The Appalachian Mountains extend from Newfoundland to Alabama. The Battle in Question 17 would be the Battle of Thermopylae, not 300. Question 18 is wrong: Hitler was not the dictator in WWI nor did he start WWII... that was the Shylocks. Question 19 deserves to be eradicated from Allah's Holy Land. Question 20 is wrong: Bollywood is the world's second largest producer of films. I bet you're just sorta Rican you shipwrecked Mexican't make a quiz.
Yeah Hitler actually fought in WW1. It wasn't until the early 1930's when he became associated with the Nazis. He became a dictator later after WWI
I havn't gone on this site in so long! And I'm looking at my quizzes and grimacing. I'll fix them right away!
Wow, this quiz is good! You are obviously a very literate person. I'm glad i didn't have to face you in the geo bee in my area, which I won. I am with booklover in that I think that your questions about Mount Sinai and Hitler are geography questions. I just made a quiz, called 'The Grand Admiral of Geography quizzes', which I think you'll enjoy. Thanks for the cool quiz!
Hey, your human! Also check if Hitler lead Germany into WW1 as well as WW2. Also, I have a book suggestion. It's not about all kinds of Geography, but its great about Pakistan and Afganistan. Try reading Three Cups of Tea. You'll enjoy it. Plus, congrats on winning your bee!
Well...I definatly agree that Hitler did not lead Germany Into WW. However, I don't agree that questions like what mountain moses climbed is not a geography question. I think that this is a good question, actually.
Congragulations on winning the bee! you made a pretty good quiz
Hitler did not lead Germany into WWI, and as far as I know, Norway is not a baltic state (I am with akubra on this). Also, this is not a geography quiz. Questions about what Moses mountain climbed, who Hitler is, etc is not geography.
Hi GeoFreak, you've made an interesting quiz - I enjoyed it! I don't think you've made a mistake in question 6: emus do live in Australia, not in New Zealand. You may have confounded them with the New Zealand kiwis. On the other hand, I have a remark about question 1. To my knowledge the Baltic countries consist of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Finland borders the Baltic Sea but is not considered a Baltic country, nor is Norway which borders the North Atlantic Ocean. In a broader context the latter two may be considered countries of the Baltic region (but that is not the same as Baltic country). For more information see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltic_states and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltic_region. Kind regards, Akubra
All School Geography Bee winners: If you need thousands of challenging quiz questions on all continents, U.S. geography, Physical Geography and Current Affairs, buy "Geography Bee Demystified" from Amazon.com. You have a better shot at winning the state and the national bee with that book than anything else in the market now.
I made a few mistakes in this quiz. Most of them are bad punctuation but in one question asking which country an emu is related to, I marked Australia as the correct answer when it is actually New Zealand. Sorry.
