    I suspect that those who graduated earlier will do better than recent graduates, based on the deterioration of our eduational system.

    After you take it, if you wish I'll tell you my score.

    This question is actually a bit of a trick one. A and C are both correct:

    8) In 1935 and 1936 the Supreme Court declared that important parts of the New Deal were unconstitutional. President Roosevelt responded by threatening to:
    A. impeach several Supreme Court justices
    B. eliminate the Supreme Court
    C. appoint additional Supreme Court justices who shared his views
    D. override the Supreme Court’s decisions by gaining three-quarter majorities in both houses of Congress

    Mad Scientist -- You did great. Are you sure about #8A?

    The question I thought was the trickiest was the last one, on taxes.

    So far, great marks from everyone. I knew the people on this message board were pretty bright -- academically speaking...
