missed one, can't figure out how pretending there is a wall behind you will keep your cast parrallel - seems to me this would make it more vertical.

Oh well.

Question 6 is the hardest but the answer is correct. You can reason it out.

I also got 100%, but agree that question 6 is a tricky one!

I feel redeemed to know that others feel the way I do about that test.
Basically, they're saying that to get 100% you had to get one wrong.

I never read the explanations to the answers until just now, but thought it was a very poorly done "test" as well as the explanations, in general, being wrong.

It was like a school test, trying to figure out what answer was expected by elimination rather than which was correct or incorrect.

Thanks for the link Jackster. When at least 4 Master Casting Instructors (at least three with national or international distance casting titles) didn't get them all "right", maybe something is wrong with the test itself.
