Now class, settle down and look down at your Blackberries. No, I mean look up here at the blackboard!

Those of us who have been working for awhile don't take tests in classrooms very often. Instead, we get tested in conference rooms. So, when was the last time you took an "Open Book" test? With Ad:tech/New York quickly approaching next month, there are going to be so many things to learn.

We're not here to test your IQ and EQ. We want to test your "TQ" (tech quotient) and "CQ" (culture quotient). We both know what a brainiac you are, so chill for 60 seconds and check this out.

It's simple; five easy multiple-choices questions on a bunch of companies which will be at ad:tech... and five "really difficult" questions on high-school movies, TV shows and songs. Click on any of the visuals to do the quick test. If you're stumped and want take your "Open Book" option, "click here or on the "ad:tech New York "Open Book Test" visual.
