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.

And you still passed because it's all common sense BS that any idiot can do, right? Maybe not given that you couldn't tell a book from the 70's from one today....

You didn't notice that the cover might have been old fashioned or that the papers might have felt and even smelled old?

Some people are slower learners than others. And OP might not have spent ALL their free times during those months to study

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.

In Oregon there were questions about how you should drive around tractors and farming equipment (how fast, when, how much you could be fined)

47- I'm from Oregon and I remember a question about driving when a horse and rider is on the road, and what to do if the horse starts looking nervous.

That's what I'm saying. I had to take it again recently because my permit was expired and I just went in and passed it without even reviewing anything lol

I studied the night before by taking like 3 practice test I did all within an hour and I got a 100% on it. It really is common sense

That's what I was hoping to. I didn't even study for 1 minute of my permit test and I still passed, no problem at all. It is ALL common sense.

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.

I just took my permit test a few weeks ago and if you can't pass the test you shouldn't be driving ever. It is the easiest test I have ever taken.

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

Damn your family must have great bookkeeping skills if you can still mistake their book from 1970s with a modern one.

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 per
