Scott Blish Study Guides

Local Quizbowl celebrity Scott Blish has combed through dozens of published question sets from 2009 to 2016, copying and sorting every tossup and bonus question into categories. Generally speaking, the more times you see an answer come up in these guides, the more important it is to study it and its stock clues.

You’ll note that there’s no guide for current events and pop culture (aka “trash”). Current events questions, by their very nature, become out of date quickly and so can’t really be studied and trash questions come from such a broad category that it’s better to learn by “living” it rather than “studying” it.
