That seems like a pretty obvious thing to notice when studying, if nothing else a 40+ year old book would not look modern even in the slightest. Your own fault OP sorry to say.

Yeah, but most of the questions are common sense. The only facts you'd need to memorize are specifics like "what %BAC can get you charged with a DUI" or something like that and there were only a couple of questions like that when I took my test.

No, the test isn't all common sense. At least on the test I took, there were several questions regarding insurance and exactly how reaction time affects distance travelled. It has a bit more rigor that you think. You shouldn't generalize that any idiot can pass, especially when OP failed.

Test I took 11 months ago was all common sense except for the road signs, that is probably the thing you would only need to study for. At least in Illinois.

The California one is 80% common sense but there are a lot of specific questions on it as well, such as how many days must you report an accident to the DMV, what's the exact fine for driving without a license, etc. It probably varies from state to state

Unfortunately, while much of the general tips in there are probably still useful while actually driving, the permit test is basically just reciting stopping distances and the like. If you google "Mississippi driving manual" there are places that let you access a free pdf of the most current one. All in all, it could have been worse. There are also practice tests online that can give you a pretty good sense of how you're doing. You don't need to obsess over the book. When I took my permit test (this was ~3 years ago. I took it at 17 so I didn't have to do 6 hours of driving with an instructor and I had actually failed the permit test my high school gave us by one question), I mostly just looked my state's manual over a little bit for a week and then read through the whole thing as my dad was driving me to the MVC. That was enough to very nearly ace it (50 questions, when you correctly answer 40, it ends the test since that's a pass. It passed me at question 42). Stressing and obsessing over studying won't help.
