Cool


you should have a test thingy.

there should be a section where you can take a linux test, and have your highest score under your profile or something.

Actually I really like this idea a lot. I will not have a chance to implement it for a little while, but it is a definite TODO. Thanks!

That doesn't sound like a bad idea. You have a bunch of questions already that you can most likely use.

OK. Beta 1 of the quiz is done. This is just the begining. Try the quiz out and let me know what you think. After the forums are upgraded the quiz system will be integrated. You will be able to view your past scores and quiz average in your profile. You can take the quiz here. If you have any suggestions let me know.

Damn, those questions were kind of hard, made me actually think about them for a minute. But I did manage to get 4 out of the 5....woo hoo. 80%, not bad condsidering I didn't do that well in school ever, a B I guess it would be considered, I was always use to D's and C's.

Sounds good to me. 10 sounds like even more fun.
I feel bad for you Jeffery, but those were some challenging questions. Reminds me of some I have seen on the Certs but just as hard.

10 questions is a good number to start with. Maybe have an overall test after you've taken so many quizzes, just to keep you on your toes.
