mtg has just taken this exam and got the eight questions that are actually math 100% correct. The two questions that are definitional (i.e. language questions) she didn't know. Surely there is some irony in that. Surely....

Whew. Passed 10/10. I was worried for a sec. Whole numbers aren't negative eh? PhD + luck = 8th Grade Superstar!

I got 10/10 too, although I will fess up to guessing on one of them (could only rule out one of the answers for sure). Still, I'm (perhaps pathetically) very proud of my score!

Unlike the fearless readers who have commented above, I will not subject myself to the math test. As a fellow weak-esteemed art historian, I am still living off the CAA buzz and don't want to be reminded of such tremendous voids in my intellectual capacity.

Now that I have had a chance to review some of your posts, however, I did want to comment that I noticed and - despite my silence on the matter - was in great approval of your awesome Birk. boots. I thought they were the right mix of fashion maven and art history conference subversive.

And your panel was def one of the best I heard. For what it's worth, mokshaart gave it a thumbs up!

I don't know -- I've got a problem with the test. Question 7 assumes that .4=40%, but it never gives you a value that you're taking the percentage OF. Unless 100%=1, and you're told that, the proposed answers are meaningless.

Teacher! The test sucks!

Ruth is correct -- the question that equates .45 with 45% is improper, so anyone who answered "between 40% and 50%" to get their 10 for 10 should not be proud. The correct answer should have been none of the above.
