    So I'm copying Rob's idea - this quiz is from the same site as his "Name the countries of the world" quiz.

    http://www.sporcle.com/games/presidents.php

    See how many you can get. If you get all of them, put down how long it took.

    I got You got 35 out of 43 U.S. Presidents.

    I like this web page it will help me remember them and what dates they held office, it even has a handy color code to know how they left office :)

    thanks for that link

    Well I kinda cheated. I got 42-43 correct, I couldnt for the life of me remember Chester Arthur. There was a time when I knew them all by chronology, but I got the rest of them in less than 5 minutes

    Easily got them all with time to spare. Guess a history degree from the 70's when tuition only cost $243.00 a quarter, was the same as the $8000.00 a semester degree is today. The biggest difference is that anyone who bothers to get a liberal arts degree today, probably isn't smarter than a 5th grader. Lol.
