Free Waterproofing

3, 3, 1, 4, 2, 2, 3, 2, 2, 1

for questions 1- 10

that's it. enjoy.
andre
3, 3, 1, 4, 2, 2, 3, 2, 2, 1

The quiz changes, I missed 3 questions. Thanks for the post, anyway.

i got question wrong on 1 for answering 3 also# 3 answer wrong & ? 4 wrong this is when the page closed ?

seems like the quiz is rigged to fail.

not only does the quiz change, but so do the answers: where there are two possible answers (based on info on the co's website), the check answer guide will respond "sorry incorrect" if you chose either.

actually spent several minutes w/the quiz & had the same question reappear, answer in the alternative (as was suggested) & then the check answer guide says "sorry incorrect."

This does come, I got a full size bottle last year.

well that's so weird. i came back and tried the test and
got the same one again. sorry about that. actually if you read
the questions they're trying to sell their product so if it says
something like 1.wash in soap or 2.wash with nixwax then choose
the nixwax choice. i do believe you are allowed to take the
test over and over until you get it right and get a bottle of
waterproofing sent your way. ENJOY! : )

I won this in October 2002. I have yet to receive my free bottle <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>
