To those of you who have latched on to the number of questions I said there'd be, there's been a change.

You may need to sit down for this.


Are you sitting?



(This means you Maelin, though maybe not just you)


Okay.

MQ2006 has shaped up to be 150 questions this year. But again, all but 15 or so will be multiple choice, so it's not as bad as it might seem! You'll all do fine, trust me!

You're beginning to rival some of my lecturers for questions!
I've got to juggle this around 2 example sheets- which I'll try to do this week!

Cheryl, I am looking forward to it.. ..bring it on !!!! The amount of the questions don't ruffle my skirts any, it's the ones that I will have to go on the internet to find the answers to that worry me. I still am not to great at finding things on there, like some of you genius types are. I still have a few to many thumbs where the internet is concerned.... ...........

lol...
I'm so tempted to find a cheap copy of Crystal Line- I can't stand it but Lizi wants a copy and I can use it for MQ.
I've got the rest...
unless I've missed out the shorts or something!

Question? On the MQ page, it mentions all the books and stories that may be on the quest. I am unfamiliar with the Continumum books. Any other description that may jog my memory?

They are short stories that the crystal singer books were originally based on. Just having the crystal singer books should be enough.

Now I am wondering if my answers is right.... Gah!

Thanks, I had just found it. It says that it is the four short stories that the "Crystal Singer" is based on.
