Additions to the TOP Test!

It’s kind of a no blog Wednesday for me here at CB, but I’ve made a few additions to the TOP Test today!  Now at 23 questions, it requires more right answers to get a 90% or better.  Do you remember your score from last time?  Stop in again and see if you can improve!  Do you remember the questions from last time?  See if you can tell which ones are new!  Share your thoughts, scores, and ideas for new questions here in the comments or via email.

Feel free to add the page to your browsers or link to your blog:

Some more are on the way, and I’ve also got another article on the Web Gallery setup that may be of interest that I’ll put out tomorrow:  FTP software.  Last but not least, don’t forget the poll going on how many cameras you own featured here on the blog.  It ends on the 30th, so as they say in politics:  Let your voice be heard!  Until tomorrow then, happy shooting and watch those apertures!

    The test is fun, but I have a few remarks:

    1) “Aperture” and “Shutter Speed” are very ambigious when it comes to “bigger/higher”. Aperture refers to the lens opening, shutter speed to the inverse of the amount of time that the shutter is open. High shutter speed = short shutter time, and reverse.
    So, shouldn’t the answer to question (2) be “A – as the aperture increases, so does the shutter speed”? – A wider lens opening means a shorter shutter time (for the same exposure) hence a higher shutter speed. Of course, if you’re stricly looking at the NUMBERS it’s a different story. The question doesn’t make clear which one you mean. And it’s frustrating to know the concept but get the answer wrong on semantics!

    2) I couldn’t answer questions 21-23. “You’ve already answered that!”. Missing 3 questions out of 23 seriously hurts your score…

    I’ve had several people write in about the wording of that particular question and I’ve gone through several edits. I think I have a better set of verbiage worked out now that doesn’t “give away the farm” so to speak and makes things clearer.

    On the last 3 questions – that is some javascripting that I “thought” I had fixed. I will re-visit again when I get a chance. in the interim, I would say it’s fair to discount those three (so just divide the # right by the total # of 20) to get your percent.
