You analyzed and wrote a "how to pass a multiple choice exam the easy way guide". A la Taiwan style buxiban, aka no knowledge or learning, just test cracking! You, sir, have truly embraced the true nature of the test and naturalized. You should be mayor of Keelung (Jilong). Bravo! :bravo: :notworthy: :bow:

Had I had this before the test I would have saved myself countless hours and months of translating and studying. :wall: :fume:

Honestly, you have learned and embraced the local culture like no other, before or since. You, sir, are legend! :bow:

I second the motion, make this a sticky! :thumbsup:

Edit: btw, can't we somehow add my complete pinyin + English translation from the Learning Chinese forum to this thread?
If you want, I can add the your whole translation of the study guide + the pinyin, too. But it would add about 50 pages to my post! So, that's why I offered anyone a copy of everything if they PM me and I can just email it to them. Should I go ahead and add your translation to the end?

Nooooo.....
I didn't think about that! It's way too long. How about a link to that thread? (Although, to be honest, with your notes I don't think it's even necessary anymore. :thumbsup: )

Cheers, Maoman. I think it's safe to say we've successfully fail-proofed that test! :D

Dirty CHEATERS! :lol:
You're worse than the Bangladeshis! When I do this thing, I'm just going to pay Northcoast Surfer to stay on his mobile and relay the answers to me as I go along. That way I won't even need to memorize anything except his phone number! :roflmao:

(By the way, there are local reporters at CNA who look at Forumosa. Just a heads up. It might be an idea to put that test code somewhere hidden, at least for now. Is there some way it could be "advertised" but not actually available to view? It would be a shame for the government to find out about this and change the test questions or something.)

But, they were very proud of me. They said that to pass the naturalization test this way showed that I am already truly a Taiwanese. :lol:[/quote]

Don't depair mate! I included your translation in the package. They must use your translation guide in conjuction with the cracking guide! :D You think I wanted to take all the blame by myself? You're just as guilty as I, but probably more guility because you started it first! :roflmao:
