F in Exams, by Richard Benson. (Still 0.99?)
I just love these witty responses to difficult exam questions! Richard Benson has assembled some of most hilarious, totally wrong exam answers. You have to admire these students who turned a FAIL into a WIN - for humor, at least!
"Hilarious collection! Over the years as a college Physics professor I've given out untold number of student exams, tests, quizzes, and homeworks. Sometimes exams were too hard, sometimes students were inadequately prepared, and sometimes they just didn't have enough time to finish answering all the questions appropriately. In those situations I would often get silly or puzzling answers to some of the questions that I had posed. All of the examples in this book (to the best of my knowledge) have been taken from actual student exams, down to the handwritten responses in the blue ink. This level of realism adds to the amusement factor. A few of these test answers (such as the one on the cover) have previously circulated around online, but majority of the answers were new to me." -- Amazon Top 50 reviewer
129 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 121 reviews.
Build A Man, by Talli Roland. (Still 0.99?)
Fresh, original chick-lit with heart... against a backdrop of cosmetic surgery gone wrong. 99 cents!
"I am happy to put Build A Man on my Favorites List and give it a whopping five stars! Roland has everything right in this story--a sweet but confused heroine, a gripping plot, and lots of laughs along the way. I was invested from the beginning, and had to see how Serenity and Jeremy's story played out." --Chick Lit Plus
"Build A Man is fast-paced, well-written chick lit that I can't recommend highly enough." --The Book Chick
