Supplement # 077
In our last
issue, I kept up my usual ranting about the problems of mastering English in
general and about those experienced with the ÜDS and KPDS exams in particular, and at one
point I suggested that there is no sense in keep doing lots and lots of "eeny weeny"
tests. That would be a waste of your precious time.
A lot of
members have written and asked me what I mean by "eeny weeny tests" (bıdı bıdı
In this issue,
you will find a test that is NOT "eeny weeny" by any stretch of
be realistic and not bury our heads in the sand. I know that a lot of candidates
would use the eeny-weeny-miney-woe method when faced with
questions of this caliber.
not rush to consult your English encyclopaedias about the
"eeny-weenie-miney-woe" method. You'll find it in no encyclopaedia, in no
dictionary. I have invented the phrase on the spot... You might say it is just
another one of my great contributions to the English language!!)
O.K. On a
more serious vein, supposing you are aiming at 50 at the ÜDS -- Make sure that
you have answered correctly at least 6 of the following questions. And make that
7 for 65, and so on.
"A friend tells the bitter truth"
(Dost acı söyler)
and that "Last regrets make no difference"
(Son pişmanlık fayda etmez).
me change that -- to give you some encouragement -- to "Late regrets sometimes
do work miracles"
(Çıkmadık canda umut vardır)...
only eight weeks to go...
Please do not click

deliberated on your own choice !!

Yukardaki sorulardan en az
6 tanesini yanıtlayamadıysanız, ÜDS ve KPDS'den 50 almayı unutunuz. 65 puan
için bu sayıyı 7 olarak düşününüz. İşte "bıdı bıdı" testlerle kıymetli
zamanınızı boşa harcamayın derken bunu kastediyorum.
Yukarda da söylediğim
gibi: A friend tells the bitter truth. Dost acı söyler...
Bu soruları, eğitim
paketimiz için bitirmek üzere olduğum "Gramer Testleri" yardımcı kitabımdan
aktardım. Bu yeni kitabımızda, amiral kitabımızdaki bilgi ve testleri
destekleyen, gramerin genel bir özeti sayılabilecek 20'şer soruluk 15 test yer
Not: Hazır olur olmaz, üçüncü eğitim paketimizi almış olan Üyelerimize

at the editorial desk, that is me, myself and Mr. İzbul, have been
very busy indeed trying to help out the political parties with their
mayorship candidates. We have given the matter some serious thought,
and here are our suggestions:
for Bâb-ı Âlî
Şehremini (mayor - belediye başkanı) for the AKP, on
kept as his trusted general secretary, in charge of doping the
masses with various pipe dreams...
valuable counselling contribution by
in matters of retro-terakki
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
the Ministry of Culture !!
part of our campaign,
"Help out the janitor with emptying waste
baskets, cleaning the grounds and mopping the floors"...
"--ship" is a suffix, pronounced /şip/. Do not confuse it with "sheep",
"Mayor", /me-yı/ = belediye
başkanı; not to be confused with the adjective "major" /mey-cı/ = "önde
Therefore, "mayorship" is not to
be confused with "major sheep" as in "the black sheep of the family"...
