Question: Use the word "doldrums" in a sentence. If you answered "I cannot play the doldrums," you're correct! At least according to this hilarious book of wrong answers, celebrating the creative side of failure with 250 true life responses to common test questions from grade school through high school.

This clever collection of longshots resembles the early morning exams of our youth--you know the ones--with amusing answers collected from American and British students from tests in science, math, tech, psych, history, and English. A touching, funny and oh-so-real look at everyday blunders, this little pick-me-up is sure to bring smiles to any student, teacher or class clown. Printed in China.

    Comments about F IN EXAMS:

    The book arrived in a large,glued-shut envelope that was very hard to open. No pull tab, no dotted line - sealed right up to the front page of the book. The contents are,indeed, funny and clever but are more appropriate to college students and adults than to those in middle or high school. The back cover examples are for those "kids" who can enjoy them responsibly and use them rarely! I'd return it but the original package is in shreds as is the inside book cover. It gets put away as a joke book for some grown, responsible adult. This is the first time I've been disappointed in a purchase from UncommonGoods.

                    Bought it for a 13 yr teen boy ..all the kids at the party got engrossed in the book and found it amusing.
                    I also heard kids refer it to their friends and parents.
                    Worth the buck!

                            I bought this book for a teenager. It's great because you have to think about the right answer to get the humor in the wrong one.

                              Funny book. I think some of the things in it have been seen on Buzz feed and stuff also. I think it makes a good gift. Might especially good for a teacher or student.

                              Service and delivery comments:

                              Product arrived promptly and in good condition. Book was plastic wrapped when it arrived, which surprised me, but no corners were bent or anything so I didn't mind.

                              Reminds me of all the answers I used to put on tests... drawing funny pictures usually at least gave you half credit!

                              Seems like it would make a fun teacher gift or stocking stuffer.

                              There are at least 20 people I would give this to. I've seen it on other websites and love the idea. Your price is better!

                              The answers seem forced or cutesey....would be funnier if answers given were thought to be real.

                              Fun... but at this point it's the sort of thing that gets around in email or online pretty quickly rather than in a book. But the price is right.

                              I'm sure these are very funny, but I am not a fan of books like this, which are really only meant to be read once.

                              to Sasha: As a teacher you should know the difference between lie and lay: lay requires an object (hens lay eggs, etc.). I do hope that your copy will be lying around rather than laying who-knows-what.

                              Goof price, but the answers are just lame and juvenile, not very original.

                              With unions under attack, budget cuts, and layoffs, I think every teacher I know could use a dose of humor about their jobs right now. Great gift.

                              I was on the fence, until I saw a comment about using the book as a 'bathroom book,' and I definitely agree!Cute, funny - sure to get a chuckle. Good for a coffee table (or bathroom) book for anyone who can relate to test-taking woes.
