From the same hilarious wellspring of failure as the bestselling F in Exams and F for Effort comes this all-new collection of inventively wrong—yet totally real—test responses by students who don't know the answer, but come up with something better instead. Featuring crucial academic subjects including English (Q: Name a key theme in Madame Bovary; A: Cows), Geography (Q: Where can you find the Andes?; A: Google Earth), Science (Q: Describe the properties of a meteor; A: An animal that only eats meat) and more, F this Test rounds out the curriculum with an extra-credit section for those tricky elective courses, and demonstrates that it's more fun to laugh when faced with an absolute fail. 

 My Review

Okay... So if you're reading this review, I hope it means that you enjoyed my review from yesterday on F for Effort! I'm a certified English teacher, and sometimes, it's just fun to read some of the wild and hilarious answers that students come up with, and that's why I'm a fan of Richard Benson's books. He takes all of those answers, and compiles them in books, and let me tell you... they are funny!

F This Test is the third F book that I've read, and the second one that I've read recently. This one features answers from numerous school subjects - English, science, psychology and sociology, performing arts, history, math and economics, and geography. Like F for Effort!, F This Test also features an extra credit section, which is about computers and technology. 

While the English and social studies questions were once again the funniest, there was an addition to this book that really improved the overall quality of this book. There is a new section on performing arts, and the answers are hilarious! If you are into performing arts, reading just that section will definitely bring a smile to your face.

If you're looking for funny fails, pick up a copy of F This Test by Richard Benson. I would recommend this book to stressed out teachers and people with a good sense of humor. I'd also recommend it to students who might need a break from a stressful semester.
