The Best of Tata Crucible Corporate Edition

Whenever you prepare for a Quiz especially for a major one you trawl through the web trying to find Past Questions but unfortunately there arent many who chronicle quizzes and most searches end up in nothing.
I took up chronicling quizzes in 2009 with Arul Mani’s General Quiz at Incident and have done many quizzes since. Chronicling gives you a clear advantage over people when you need to frame a new quiz or even remember certain facts. The real good questions could be lifted de facto and the others help you frame awesome questions. Basically they guide you to become a better quizzer and an awesome quizmaster.

I came across this Blog post with an Ebook boasting the best of Tata Crucible Corporate Editions 2006-2009.This Database of Tata Crucible’s Questions is worth mentioning. I downloaded it and found the format in which they were arranged very helpful. The Questions are restricted to about 10 a page and the answers for those are at the bottom. Definitely an Easy to read format. Containing an amazing 421 Questions, it is an essential addition to any quizzer’s collection. And the best thing is that its free. All you need to do is Pay for it With a Tweet or a Facebook Share. This is something i recommend especially for the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz Edition. Am sure they recycle questions and this ebook would give you a head start in preparing.
