The CR 25 IT Acronym Quiz

( Post 25 of 25 )

OMGFor the final post of CR 25, we wanted to have a little fun…

Over the years, across two separate stints, we have previously tweeted a weekly IT acronym on our Twitter page (@ComputerRecruit) for a bit of fun.

With the launch of CR 25, we thought that it’d be a good idea to turn it into a quiz.

Answer 10 multiple-choice questions (out of a possible 50 – randomised each time).

Will you be an AM (an Acronym Master) or be considered NOGOOD (Not Good At Acronyms)? Take the quiz and find out…

But wait, there’s more! If you publish your score on Twitter, you will be entered into a competition and could win one of three £25 iTunes vouchers! Look out for the ‘Tweet’ button once you’ve completed the quiz in order to share it on social media. (For full terms and conditions, please see the bottom of this post, below the quiz.)

Please note: The competition is now closed, but you can still do the quiz regardless!

It’s also at this point that we’d like to say a massive, massive thank you to everyone involved with CR 25 – we’ve had a great month and a great 25 years… Thank you!!!
