Compiled from notes, consulted from heavyweight books; these Quizzes have been prepared by a practising teacher and are configured to cover the following areas of study, with 50 questions each area, totalling 250 questions on 177 pages:

Each discipline has 50 essential questions in multiple-choice format and can be checked with their respective correct answers and correlated with the grading system.
