If you find yourself in an extreme situation like being stuck in a car dangling on the edge of a cliff would you know how to deal with it? This test will show you how well you could survive in nearly two dozen scenarios from a particular book series and its website (see below). Special thanks to its publisher for embracing this test instead of shutting it down!
Every test result comes with a picture of a scenario and certain pictures even reveal a correct answer!Remember to choose the answer that you think gives the best chance for survival. In some situations where there are many outside factors beyond your control, you may not be able to completely prevent injury or death. For simplicity sake, I have chosen to use the book series, its web site, and calendars as the only sources of information for this test and I will not change or remove questions based on any other sources even if you think it is "wrong". However, if you believe I have misunderstood content from the book series itself, please let me know. In addition to obtaining a survival rate at the end of the test, you will be given a "certain death" rate. This is the percentage of "wrong" answers you gave that would likely result in death. However, not all "wrong" answers result in certain death. Also, the category you are placed in is only dependent on your survival rate. I've tried to make the scoring as fair and least subjective as possible. Make sure to answer all the questions, otherwise it will hurt your score.
I insist that the best course of action is to consult a professionally trained expert. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNDERTAKE ANY OF THE ACTIVITIES DESCRIBED IN THIS TEST YOURSELF. Information within is meant for education and entertainment purposes only. I disclaim any liability from any injury that may result from any use of the information contained in this test. I hope you find this test at least somewhat interesting and rate it accordingly when you get your results. Check out these other well written, highly rated tests of mine: Rule a Country test
