Boolean Practice 2 (NEAR, ONEAR)

 

In the course Creating Searches with Boolean: Foundations  we reviewed the Boolean operators everyone should know in order to create searches.

Here is a safe place where you can practice your new knowledge. You can also practice in Explore and test your search to see if you are getting the results you expected.

 

How it works:

  1. Pick at least one scenario listed below and create a mock search.
  2. Add your search as a reply below. No cheating!
  3. Once you post your search, review what other learners have added to see how it compares.
  4. We will PM you the answer key
