F in Exams: the Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson

As many students are currently approaching their mid-term exams, F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson is required reading. Students who need a break from their studies or teachers who are going cross-eyed after grading countless exams will enjoy this humorous book of incorrect answers to test questions.

My personal favorite entry in the book is from a literature exam:
In Pride and Prejudice, at what moment does Elizabeth Bennett realize her true feelings for Mr. Darcy?
When she sees him coming out of the lake.
Any Colin Firth fan worth their salt will get a belly laugh out of that one.



How about brushing up on your history?

What were the circumstances of Julius Caesar’s death?

Suspicious ones.
I suppose the underlying theme of this book is to be creative if you don’t know the answer! Maybe your teacher will have pity and give you some extra credit.

Readers who enjoy this humorous title might also like Damn You, Autocorrect! Awesomely Embarrassing Text Messages You Didn’t Mean to Send by Jillian Madison or Passive Aggressive Notes: Painfully Polite and Hilariously Hostile Writings by Kerry Miller.

F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers is available in print and e-book formats in the VBPL catalog.
