Administrator answers:

If you go to class, _participate in class_, do your homework, and ask questions of the teacher then these mid-terms and finals will be just another quiz.

EDIT: @JohnnieAstro: Woodblock printing is most likely the answer to #18 since that is a precursor to movable type, the Gutenberg innovation.
Why do teachers place so much emphasis on names and dates rather than the events that make up the history of our world? Is it laziness? Poor knowledge of the subject? Incompetence?
