You’re psyched about the end of the term, prom and summer plans are on your mind, but you still have those annoying finals to deal with. Here are some tips on how to unearth the most viable answers to those multiple choice and true/false questions. We guarantee that these will only help some of the time.

  1. When an answer is absolute and contains words like “always, only, never, none, all, no, exactly, must, everything, etc,” those answers is usually false or invalid. Almost nothing happens the same way all the time (unless it’s a math test). But, don’t use this tip to eliminate “all of the above” or “none of the above” as potential answers.

  2. Conditional words like “sometimes, probably, mostly, typically, seldom, many, almost, usually, likely, etc.” are more apt to be true.

  3. None of the Above, is regularly a choice on most tests, however it is rarely the answer. The goal of the test is to help you learn, if “None of the Above” was the correct answer, you wouldn’t really learn anything from the question. Be careful of double negatives that the teacher may add to confuse you.

  4. All of the Above, if you start looking at answers and think definitely A is correct and maybe B and C, well “All of the Above” is likely the right answer. Again by having multiple correct answers the teacher gives you a better chance to learn more about the topic.

  5. If the answer is funny, it’s usually wrong. It’s the teacher have fun with the answers and giving you a little bit of a break narrowing down the answers.

  6. The longest response is often the correct one. Teachers do not want to spend their time writing wrong long answers. When you see lots of information and adjectives in an answer it may be a clue that it is the right response.

  7. Similarly, if a true/false question is longer than the others, then it is likely a true statement.

  8. When in doubt, typically, more answers are true than false.

  9. Statements that contain the word “because or since” have a better chance of being true. They explain why the statement is true.

  10. See if there’s a word in the question that matches a word in the answer. That might be a clue that the answer is linked to the question.

  11. Keep an eye out for grammar clues. If the lead in question ends with the article “an” the answer likely starts with a vowel. If it ends with an “a,” answers with vowels are likely incorrect.

  12. Also on the grammar front look for clues that an answer might be plural or singular. If the statement ends in “are” the answer should be plural, where if the last word is “is,” the answer should be singular.

  13. When two answers are opposite, then one of them is typically correct. This is the teacher taking the easy way out of coming up with a wrong answer. Use it to narrow your choices.

  14. Using the same theory, try to find words that look similar or answers that contain similar words. One of those is usually correct. Again the teacher is finding an easy way to give you a wrong answer option.

  15. When you have a number options on multiple choice (that is not a math test), typically the highest and lowest numbers are incorrect. They help frame the correct answer and may help to increase your chances.

  16. Finally, when you just run out of options, for teacher created tests, “C” is the most popular option and “B” is the second most popular.

Hopefully, these tips will make test taking a little easier. To make a night out a little more special most people would recommend:

A.   Getting a ride in a Big Yellow School Bus

B.   Reserving a Limo or Party Bus from Le Limo

C.   Asking a parent to drive you

D.   None of the above

A Party Bus versus a Party on a Bus

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 @ 09:28 PM

Party buses are all the rage these days. People hire them for nights out, bachelor/bachelorette parties, sweet 16, proms, rehearsal dinners, sporting events, theater nights, scavenger hunts, graduation, casino packages, holiday parties and more. It’s a great way to get a large group together for a fun time while splitting the cost among a gang of friends.

Interior of our Land Yacht, the ultimate party bus

We get calls every day about our party buses and our trolley. Le Limo’s fleet has a wide variety of options based on the number of passengers you’re inviting and how you want the bus to look and feel. We have our 28-passenger Luxury Liner, our 26 passenger Land Yacht (the staff favorite), our 18 passenger Cabin Cruisers and the Mercedes Sprinters. But they all have a different atmosphere. The Land Yacht is the ultimate party bus. It’s like a night club on wheels. Two bars, surround sound stereo, fiber optic color changing lights, slate floor, wrap around perimeter seating, DVD/CD combos, an intercom systems, 40” LCD TVs, touch screen control panels and a privacy divider. It’s hard not to have fun on the Land Yacht.

But there is a difference between a party bus and a party on a bus. While guests even have a blast on our shuttle bus, we’ve seen some pretty sorry excuses for a party bus. School buses painted bright colors do not make a party bus. Forward facing seats isn’t really a party bus. The key to any great time is to spend it with great people, but spending that time on a great ride is icing on the cake.

A party bus has the amenities you crave for a great time. Don’t settle for just a bus, oh you’ll save money, but you want to make sure your friends are still talking to you when they get on board. While you can get a decent sense of what a party bus looks like online, we strongly suggest you go check out the bus in-person. Minimally, ask lots of questions, make sure that what you see is what you get. Le Limo has an Open House every Saturday from noon to 3 PM. However, we do urge you to call if you're considering a specific bus, it might be rented when you come by.

We’ve heard stories of buses not being cleaned, smelling of alcohol and cigarettes, ripped leather, no glasses, no ice…just a bare bones bus. Then there are some things you may think are great features on a party bus that just don’t quite pan out as planned.

People sometimes ask for a bathroom, while we’ve had party buses in the past that have had a bathroom, we got more complaints than anything else. Did you ever try to share a bathroom with 28 of your closest friends after a night of drinking? Enough said.Le Limo also stopped offering buses with a stripper pole. Again this sounds like a good idea until someone who’s had too much to drink is hanging upside down 5 feet in the air and suddenly loses their grip. Liability issues arise for the event organizer, the night club, the limo company and it can be ugly.

Please be aware that our bigger vehicles are one-of-a-kind party buses, they regulary sell out during peak periods like, proms, weddings and Patriots games. We pride ourselves on being high-end luxury providers that offer a sense of class and elegance. We don’t just offer a bus for a party, we offer top-tier party buses. Check out our selection, call us, visit us and ask questions. Make sure you hire the party bus that is right for you.

Party Bus Builders

Posted by Jennifer Brugliera on Fri, Feb 10, 2012 @ 12:11 PM

We had a fun trip to Indiana this week with our dealer Don Brown Bus Sales.  We were able to tour the factories that make our buses from the chassis through completion.  Building a party bus is about a 12 week process from the construction of the frame, to the fiberglass body, windows and interior custom build.

We are excited to be working with Midwest Automotive Designs who will be building us a custom party bus interior.  They have created vehicles for Beyonce and JZ, Usher, Arod and many more.  Our new party bus should be available for rent by the end of April 2012.  This vehicle will be able to transport 26 passengers in total luxury.

 

We will post more photos of the vehicle in build as we get them.
