    Have THE NEEDED cards.

    # *MINI SECTION*II.   What are exams?                                         #
    ###############################################################################
    
    Like I said in the Intro, exams are taken every month.  The ranking goes from
    dropout boy to King of games.  The rules are simple.  Pass with 250 points or
    over (Halve the total).  The exams are split up into three sections.  They are
    Practical, written and the timed duel.  In the practical, you are given a week
    to make a deck to a certain theme (You can always make it on the day, when he
    says is your deck ready?).  This is worth 300 points.  It is IMPORTANT!
    The timed duel is a duel where the cards are laid down for you.  You must solve
    th riddle.  Unlike normal duels, you may look at face down cards on your
    opponents side of the field, and your deck.  You may re-try up to 10 times.
    Points are deducted for eace time you start again, and if you take a LOOOOONG
    time to do it!  This is out of 100.
    The written comprises of 10 timed questions.  They are on the cards you meet in
    the game. Quite simple, 10 points each.  10 x 10 =100.  Now, who can work this
    out?

    that ACTUALLY works!
    
    Version 4.10
    
    (Friday 31/3/06)
    
    Sorry for the lack of Updates but I have received a scarce amount of E-mails.

    #MINI SECTION III. The test procter's deck!                                #
    ############################################################################
    
    The test procter is an unusual fell"A".  He seems to have a LP recovery
    deck, but there are a few out of place cards like Big-bang shot and Jinzo.
    I will not list his deck until I have completed finding out what he has.  And
    for that, I need to wait for year 2.  Unless you wanna email it to me...
    JUST KIDDING!  Can if you want to.  Basically, the reason behind the LP deck,
    is that in the exams where you have to damage him, he wants you to survive as
    much as possible.  He is a bit pof a dumb-ass though, as most of the time, I
    summon a monster with 1000 ATK points and he cowars in DEF.  In the traps exam,
    there is some good news and some bad news.  The bad news is that Jinzo is NOT
    taken out.  The good news is, that he <B>ALWAYS</B> (you know the whole buisness
    with <B>) sets it SO DONT ATTAcK WITH A MONSTER THAT HAS 1500 ATK - OR FLIP IT
    UP BY PLAYING SWORD OF REVEALING LIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Strategy:
    
    Simple.  Most people over - complicate this.  First, make sure you DON'T ATTACK
    The opponents life points directly AT ALL.  First, destroy 10 monsters. Then,
    Seeing as how the guy has a LOT of life points, take him down.  You should
    Win automatically.

    Strategy:
    
    Ah, the good old spells!  Spell are my favourite types of exams as they are
    Easy to activate.  This is a defence deck with the monsters.  Use toon table
    To search for another, then another, then toon world.  Simple really!:)
    
    *NOTE*  If you like, take out a few but if you do, replace them with FIELDS!
    (thanks to dave for this!)  Also, you could try and make a theme about it of
    SPELLCASTERS(thanks to Chris Weir for this).
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Section C, Traps!/
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Style: Stall!

    X3 Waboku
    X1 Ring Of Destruction
    X1 Magic Cylinder
    X1 Torrential Tribute
    X2 Embodiement Of Aphopis
    
    Stratergy:
    
    This is a bit thrown together, I must admit.  Hm ... ..., ah yes!  If you
    Are lucky enough to draw cathedral of nobles on turn 1 then activate it!
    Always leave 2 open spaces for cards that go straight to the graveyard e.g.
    Waboku and Jar of greed.  Medium, I wont blame you if you fail.  Email me
    And is I think your TRAPS deck is better, then I will post it!

    OK this is the part of the guide where I get yelled at ALOT.  People, this is
    a VERY UNLIKELY deck to get a perfect, seeing as how it has LOW potential.
    This is a temporary until someone can beat it.  My sincere apologies, as
    this is probably what you were all looking for!  There is a stratergy to this
    though.  There are some monters that fuse to form more than one monster.
    (I.e. Red eyes black dragon), so if you like use these (Thanks to Dave for
    this!)

    Trap's: 3
    
    X1 Mirror Force
    X1 Call Of The Haunted
    X1 Ring Of Destruction
    
    Strategy:
    
    This is meant to be a multi-dragon fusion deck.  So, you build up the dragon's
    in your hand and on the firlsd, the when you draw fusion gate, special summon A
    LOAD of Dragon's.  Then, fuse all the Fusions (And any others if required) to
    create God's LIVING MIRACLE, F.G.D!!!!!! Lol! (@~@)

    Ritual exams are simple.  No need for descriptions.  I have to admit, these
    Are rare, so feel free to make your own ritual decks.  Try using higher Level
    Type monsters to fulfill the cost and avoid normal monsters.

    Strategy:
    
    Play fire princess IMMEDIATLEY when she is in your hand!  Dark room of nightmare
    Speeds up the process of elimination.  DO NOT ATTACK THEM AT ALL!!!!  Use no
    Healing cards until fire princess is on the field with (optional) Dark Room Of
    Nightmare.  Use Tremendous  Fire When you like!  Stelth Bird is amazing.
    PERIOD.  On it's own, it dose 1000 points of damage AND can flip itsef back down
    To!

    #Section X.  Events involving exams!                                         #
    ##############################################################################
    
    There are a few events involving exams.  These are the ones that I know of:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Who:   Mrs.   Fontaine
    What:  Easy money
    Where: Gym
    How:   Fail the exams so that you are ranked dropout boy
    When:  All the time on weekends
    
    Startegy:
    
    Beat Fonda Fontaine.  The remaining LP you have = DP.  E.G.  Dont lose or heal
    A SINGLE LIFE POINT and you would have 8000 DP!  For free!  And your rank is
    Raised to! (to apprentice duellist).  She has a RUBBISH deck so use a beat-down,
    And the duel will last about three seconds.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Who:   Dorothy the shop keeper
    what:  Free Pack
    where: Front of school
    How:   Say yes twice to will you help me?
    When:  Friday Exams
    
    Strategy:
    
    This is a very wasteful event.  IT IS A POINTLESS BUT FUN EVENT!  This will help
    You with easy money too.  On the day of exams, there is a slight chance that
    Shopkeeper Dorothy will ask you to help her with a truck.  Say yes.  She'll say
    That you will miss the exams.  Say yes again. You will miss timed duel and
    Written, BUT NOT PRACTICAL!  You can still pass, but only just.  Then, on
    Tuesday, instead of choosing the pack that you want, you get ONE free pack of
    Dorothy's gift (the all 1200 common card pack).  Then you leave!  STUPID!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Who: Chazz
    What: Leaving :) WOO HOO!
    where: Classroom, Duel Arena, Harbour
    How: Kick the LIVING HELL out of Chazz(I.e. Beat him 10 times!)
    When: Weekday Evenings
    
    Chazz get REALLY PISSED OFF AT YOU AND LEAVES DUEL ACADEMY!  You don't have to
    Do this months exams (USE FULL FOR FUSIONS!) AND You get to go into Obelisk
    Blue!  Oh, one more thing.  You MUST BE A MEMBER OF SLIFER RED!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Yugi Deck (I dont have alot of Info on this one.)  Beat the event to get an
    excemption from the Exams.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Anything else like exemptions or the above would be appreciated!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    #Section XI, FAQ!                                                            #
    ##############################################################################
    
    Anything with a * next to it was mine:).
    ------------------
    What is a O-T-K?*
    
    One Turn Kill.
    ------------------
    How do you get to be the king of games?*
    
    You need three things:
    
    1) To have beaten everyone 10 times each(I'm not sure, but you may be able to
    get away with duelling 200 times.  Email for proof!)
    
    2) At least 60% of the Questions answered correctly on the written(see other
    FAQ).
    
    3) 100% of cards.  (Blinkin heck!  That is only for prince too! 0_o!)
    -----------------
    
    And here is an Email that I got.
    
    I have read your practical exam guide and at the very bottom of the
    guide there is a code section and I don't know what it is. - I have Gotten
    Several Emails like this one.  They are Action Replay Codes.
    
    I also want to ask if u beat the game yet. If yes, please tell me how because
    I think it just keep on going. - It Never Ends.  Konami Always Makes an Endless
    Cycle Of Duels for games, so no.
    
    And i also want ask how do you get from a elite duelist to the king of games. -
    You need to get to Prince of games first.  Here are the requirements for Prince:
    100 Wins Against Everyone Combined.
    100% Of the cards.
    About 40 Q's on the Written Exam Correctly.
    ----------------
    The action Replay codes don't work!
    
    Mabey your version is low.  Go to options and then look at the top right hand
    corner.  It shold say V.....  I use a 3.3 and I got them off the message boards
    and they all work fine for me.
