So then how do generalists know a lot about everything? Do they just spend a ton of hours reading packets upon packets of tossups on basically everything?

Re: Writing Questions

So basically people get amazing at quizbowl by reading summaries on the internet about books that come up, reading packets, going to tournaments, and looking at random stuff on the internet? That's basically what I've been doing. Also, with reading the books and short stories If it takes me 3 hours ...

Mythology Questions

Hello everyone, I am trying to get really good at Mythology, and I was wondering if anybody knew of a good family-tree or something like that for Mythology, or anything that would really just help me see everybody's families in the mythology systems. I know that this is kind of a big question, espec...

Re: Difficulties...

Thanks!

Just one question: wouldn't the time I take reading the book be better spent on reading many book summaries? Isn't it more important to be able to buzz on more questions in the middle than power them at the beginning?

I try writing questions, and my coaches say that they're turning out okay, but I don't seem to remember all the information given to me. I get mixed up with characters from b...

Re: Question Writing

So should I be writing Bonuses or Tossups? Some people tell me to start off writing one-line easy bonuses, while others tell me to write short tossups. Which should I do?

What/How To Study

Hello! I'm new to this forum, and Quiz Bowl in general, so excuse me if me questions appear incredibly stupid. So basically, I'm a Freshman, and I have absolutely no idea what to study. My first tournament was yesterday, and I only averaged something like 10 points per game... Most of my points came...
