I don't see the point
I'm not at all sure what's the point of all of this.

I did browse through the quizzes, but I didn't try to score them. I would do pretty well on the 2nd and third. But I would not do as well on the first.

But what's the point. Those tests are on one's ability to recite facts. It is possible to be very good at reciting fact, yet have a poor understanding. And it is possible to be poor at reciting facts, yet understand very well.

Those tests are not a useful way to evaluate understanding.
