Crossposted from "miscellaneous high school quizbowl" --JTH wrote:NAQT is now offering Thumbs Up for History practice sets, which contain questions on history and other important topics from the past. The questions are drawn from NAQT's existing high school and middle school practice-question sets and are available at a variety of difficulty levels. Each set contains six packets of 30 tossups.

Depending on demand, NAQT may produce more Thumbs Up for History sets and/or Thumbs Up sets in other subject areas.

I bought all of the sets, and I can say that it is well worth the purchase. I can finally use NAQT packets for history without having to meticulously pinpoint history questions in each packet. This will help me out in future tournaments in both History Bowl and Quizbowl and I really wish to see a thumbs up for Lit or Science in the future.
