5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Collection of Totally Wrong Test Answers, March 11, 2011
This review is from: F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers (Paperback)
Over the years as a college Physics professor I've given out (and graded) and untold number of student exams, tests, quizzes, and homeworks. Sometimes exams were too hard, sometimes students were inadequately prepared, and sometimes they just didn't have enough time to finish answering all the questions appropriately. In those situations I would often get silly or puzzling answers to some of the questions that I had posed. I had always enjoyed those answers (but I still marked them as wrong), and sometimes I would deliberately assign a question or two on an exam that was intended to elicit quirky responses. Therefore, when I came across "F in Exams" I knew this was the kind of book that I'd enjoy. All of the examples in this book (to the best of my knowledge) have been taken from actual student exams, down to the handwritten responses in the blue ink. This level of realism adds to the amusement factor. A few of these test answers (such as the one on the cover) have previously circulated around online, but majority of the answers were new to me. The answers cover most of the major disciplines and subjects - math, physics, psychology, chemistry, biology, etc. The answers were actually funny, and not merely amusing. The book is relatively short, but it is very well designed. I highly recommend it.

Perhaps he got the knowledge from the part of the book that says these are real answers.

It's not journalism, so who cares if they're fake? They're funny, and isn't that the point of the book?
