HIGH SCHOOL PRACTICE QUESTIONS
The Best of the Best: our best questions are our best value
Challenge your team to answer our best questions -- the ones that decided the National Academic Championships
We use over 6,000 questions each year at the National Academic Championship. We've selected the best 1,200 from each year for your use in team practices.
The booklets each contain 12 sets of 100 questions in Questions Unlimited's copyrighted, four-quarter format. Each set has four rounds:
- Round 1 (Warm-Up Round): Relatively easy toss-up questions worth 5 and 10 points apiece.
- Round 2 (Bonus Round): Toss-up questions and 4-part bonus series
- Round 3 (60-Seconds Round): Four 60-Seconds rounds of 10 questions each.
- Round 4 (Stump the Experts Round): Relatively difficult toss-up questions worth 15 and 20 points apiece.
At a price of only $80 per set of 1,200 questions, it's our best question value ever!
These volumes are the most popular in our 40-year history. The questions were not written to be time-sensitive so, although we will automatically send you the most recent volume(s), the earlier volumes will be about 95% up to date.
Practice Toss-up Sets
Practice toss-up questions come in sets of 10 current events questions + 60 timeless questions covering a wide range of academic subjects, including history and literature, math and science, geography and the arts.
We offer more than 350 practice sets, and we keep careful records so that your school receives different sets each time it orders. With our volume discount, the price is as low as $5.00 per practice set if you order 20 or more sets at a time, and you receive two free sets with your first order of the year!

A personal note
"My passion for art began when I was 17, and assigned to be the "art expert" (among other subjects) on our 'In the Know' team. Our team didn't win any games, but I grew from a player who could recognize a Remington or a Rembrandt to a person who appreciated and loved the works of the great masters. It was Quiz Bowl that opened up this field for me."
