How to PlayForced OrderWrong Answers
I played around with the format, but Please Note: SOME OF THE QUESTIONS FLOW INTO THE 3RD COLUMN. I had to force the order because some questions may have the same answer. These are NOT "trick questions." Some are very easy and others are difficult. You can just type the number when you see multiple choice. The average NFL player score is around 20-21 out of 50 questions. Multiply your score by 2 and you will have your proper score. Here is some information on the exam: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonderlic_Test
