Hey, I am never busy at work. I do more work for http://www.linuxquestions.org than I do at my actual job. That is the sad part about the job I am at, it gives me enough time to browse this site 10 hours a day.
But yeah, can't wait for the ten question quiz, that should at least take another 10 minutes of my time.

A recommended mix...

A good mix would be :

30% Easy questions
30% Intermediate
20% Difficult of Expert
20% God only knows the answers Ha Ha or Master Questions...

Thumbs up yeah...

ten questions would be okay, but i would probably make about 20 questions ranging from newbie to guru questions,
like :

1)how do you check what processes are running
2)how would you mount a windows 98 hd read-only?
3)who is the main author of linux?
(types of questions i know!)
...
and getting more difficult as it progresses

Ho hum Jeffrey!

10 Q's sound like a good idea.

Could link into personal profiles?

great idea... ten questions sounds good.. maybe have different categories of questions... like for each forum... just dont make them too long... the only thing thats worse than taking a test that you dont know half of the answers to, is taking a long test that you dont know the answers to....

Here is another good place to practice a free Linux exam I found a long time ago, http://www.brainbench.com and their test they have is pretty difficult.

Thumbs up

cool, I managed to get 100% ... There should be more questions, though...

LinuxQuestions.org Linux Quiz Results
Your Score: 50 / 50

YOUR SCORE
100.0% 50.0 points out of 50

What does this mean? *
50 points is in the 81 through 100 precent
You make me proud. You are well on your way to becoming a Linux guru.
Have you visited the forums?

Took the test....40%

Just a suggestion....it would be helpful to me to know which questions I answered correctly/incorrectly and possibly a brief explanation about the correct repsonse.

Good test. More questions might increase my chances of getting a better score

Good start for a test, jeremy. I just took it and scored 80%! I'm happy with that, especially given that I've been drinking (like DrJim).

Then I realized that I'm sitting here drinking beer on a Sunday night at 8:45 PM and watching for new posts and taking tests on my Linux knowledge. On Memorial Day weekend. I need a life! Wow.

But who am I kidding? I'm still happy!

----------------

Your Score: 50 / 50
YOUR SCORE
100.0% 50.0 points out of 50

AVG SCORE
64.2% 32.1 points out of 50

76 have taken this test so far.

65 people have scored lower than you.

11 people have the same grade as you.

------------------

Looking forward to more questions.

Jeremy, if you need help with more questions, let me know. I'd be happy to come up with a mix of easy to tough ones. But probably not tough to some of the people that spend time here.
