As all of us know from personal experience,ours is a test-obsessed society—from the SATs to 's"What Is Your Sexual IQ?" We hatethem, but we're fascinated by them, sowe do them. We especially can't resistthe guilty pleasure of a fast magazine-typeversion that carries no consequences,particularly if no one else has tosee the results. As a public service gestureand a bit of a break, I have developeda somewhat tongue-and-cheekquiz to rapidly assess some of your financialknowledge. The process will take justa minute and should be more fun thanfunctional, if you're the scoring type,and what doctor isn't?
If you have kept track of youranswers, score 10 points for each.Notice I didn't say for which answer orwhat a normative total implies. That'sthe way it goes in financial affairs. Butbe of good cheer; everyone in my classreceives an A!
