The questions... they look pretty awkward. Why would you need that kind of detailed knowledge?

The facts are useless... from that I believe the revision sheet is useless. Catcher in the Rye is my favourite novel - I have read it over and over again, and I can relate to Holden Caulfield so much....but if you're focusing on such random things, then you're missing so much out on the book - Holden's insecurity, his perception of the outside world as a danger and a harm, his vision of everyone as "phoneys", his disillusionment with the old establishments and his teenage confusion in general. It reflects the opinion of almost every teenager and protests against middle-aged phoniness (note the symbol of the Catcher in the Rye who wants to save the children esp. Phoebe from the same phoniness). THAT is the way in which you should be studying it. No offence, but your teacher is not very good....

yeah... I relate to him too... this is probably sounding like a mental health care group here now...

That's the kind of stuff we've been looking at (the language and deeper meaning), but it is important to be able to remember facts from the book and quickly find significant events in the exam.
