I got about half of them on the first try, not that great since I lived there for 40 years. I decided to memorize the rest and eventually i began wondering where they all were in relation to the ones I already knew. I downloaded a bunch of county maps just a few days ago and today when I come back to the quiz I see you have added a map! (I do miss the populations though, that was very interesting info.)

We had a giant map of the state in our living room when I was studying for the bar, so I memorized them while sitting in those boring bar review classes. I thought I was hot stuff until I got to Arkansas, where the guy we were staying with could recite all of Mississippi's 82 counties in alphabetical order. Texas? Wouldn't even try.

Used to live in California and I only got 16, including some that were complete guesses like "Lake," "Sierra," and "Nevada." I missed Contra Costa even though I had an apartment there for three months and lived right next to Contra Costa Community College. This was all many years ago so I don't feel too bad.

According to Wikipedia: "As of 2016, there were 3,007 counties, 64 parishes, 18 organized boroughs, 11 census areas, 41 independent cities, and the District of Columbia for a total of 3,142 counties and county-equivalents in the United States". So good luck with that!!
