Oops, Not Your Best
Oops! From your results, it's clear that the Geography of the USA is not something you have much track with. You should take a coast-to-coast trip in the USA one day, we hear it's the most rewarding experience! We can guarantee that such a trip will give your geographical knowledge the update it truly needs.
Great score! Your results prove that you certainly seem to have a lot of knowledge about the USA! You are a critical thinker, and you make knowledge your own. You are process-oriented, which means you are able to apply what you've learned by focusing on what's important. Well done!
You Aced It!
Congratulations, it seems as though you are VERY knowledgable about US geography. Very few people get a perfect score (or close to it) on this test, so your knowledge of American geography is really something that you ought to be proud of! You are clearly a life-long learner, which is something that's far less common than you might like to believe.
