How do you do?

At this site (http://www.lizardpoint.com/fun/geoquiz/euroquiz.html), I made a score of 94. How did you do?

"Albania, Albania, you border on the Adriatic."

79. I stink at geography. But I guessed Albania right, thanks to Coach!

101! Woo-Hoo! (Of course, Geography was part of my major (Secondary Social Studies Ed), but that was prior to the establishment of all the little former Yugoslav and Russian republics ... I still get confused by them)

My Eastern European geography stinks. I got an 85. On my third try.

(Embarrassed beyond belief. Was a day I could DRAW a map of the WORLD from memory. No lie.)

Sad.

Yeah, I always get mixed up with those Yugoslav republics too. Still can't find Montenegro. And, though I know those Baltic republics Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, I get them mixed up in perfect location too.

SO Dawn, what do folks do with degrees in geography besodes cartography?

Work in HR or teach Social Studies :)

If I had been smart, I would've understood that Political Science was for teaching Government and would have had that as my third component (History & two others: I chose Geog and Econ). But I was a dingbat and went for Geography which I do enjoy, but had to sit through 2 courses on Geology which I don't.

63. Pathetic. I even hit Denmark once for Norway, even though I KNEW better! I'm taking it again.

You know what actually helps, is knowing that Macedonia is just North of Greece (from the Bible) and remembering that Macedonia is a "new" name, coming from the break up of a bigger chunk of nations that had been one. Not that I can FIND Slovakia or The Czech Republic, mind you, but I do know, they've got to be in that lower eastern area above Greece.

I got a 74 second time around. LOL
Pathetic

Here's a puzzle version.

I like that puzzle version, Valerie. I got 38 of 45, though, so I need to go back and review my geography. However, two of those were mistakes when my finger slipped off the clicker!

81. Blech. I could draw a map of Europe when I was college, but that's not much good today since it's so different now. And then hitting the "next question" button once by mistake didn't help either.
