  I will bet there are thousands of South Sea Islanders who are excellent swimmers and practice the skills you point out here, yet they would fail your exam - Meaning knowing the definitions is not an indicator of your actual swimming abilities.  :)

I mostly agree but there are a lot of things that must be known to be
a good swimmer too. :-)
What is IOR?
What is the IOR of water? Air?
How many frames per second for a normal film?
What is 3 point lighting?
What is a fill light? Key? Back? How might you use these to change the
mood of a portrait?
What is Z-transparency? What is a motion vector? What does Chroma
mean? What is specular and how do you use it?
There is a lot that we must know to be good.
