The Unseen University Challenge is a brilliant quiz book, perfect for Discworld fans. It covers the books in the Discworld series from The Colour Of Magic to Maskerade with a few additions here and there such as Strata and the Discworld maps.

Its a great book if you want to see how much you can remember from the books covered in this quiz or as a little game between a few friends who also like Discworld. It is really good for pointing out little facts that you may have missed whilst reading the

Calling all Discworld fans! Anyone who thinks they know their stuff when it comes to the Discworld should get their gleeful mitts on this dandy little updated quiz book. Containing questions across the scale of easy-peasy to devillishly difficult, it will challenge even the hardiest of Pratchetteers as they test their knowledge of the flatest of fantasy worlds. It's fun, it's funny and it's a must-have addition to anyone who loves the work of Britain's greatest living fantasy author!

This is a little book with short quizzes on the most random little facts, names and Roundworld parallels that anyone could have come up with. It can be read through for fans who feel that they need some more Discworld in their lives. Sadly, having been published in 1996, the book only covers the first dozen or so Discworld books.

Unfortunately I flunked out of the University. I enjoy Pratchett's writing and the Diskworld universe, but I'm not obsessive enough over the details.

When it's a quiz/final exam that's a fatal error. At least it wasn't an essay test.
