Cool site!

For the "Name the three biggest cities in each state" I got 137 out of 150. I was a tourism major and have studied population numbers a lot, so I am sure that helped. The state that threw me the most was Vermont. I got Burlington, but would have never guessed the other two.

Overall, I did well on the US/N American tests.

On the other hand, I did not do quite as well on the international tests. I did okay with Europe, but the African and Asian cities were difficult.
