My first guide, so comments are greatly appreciated......
You're a Star - 10
Collect 1 Extra Credit Star
Of the ten categories presented to you at the start of the game, two will give you the opportunity to earn an Extra Credit bonus star. On these questions, in order to earn the bonus star, you must correctly answer the question without the use of one of your three cheats. The first time you accomplish this, you'll earn this achievement. The Extra Credit stars only appear in single-player games.
30 Stars - 20
Collect 30 Extra Credit Stars
Continue to play single-player games to earn more chances at Extra Credit questions. If you correctly answer both Extra Credit questions in every game you play, this achievement should unlock during your 15th game.
70 Stars - 30
Collect 70 Extra Credit Stars
Continue to play single-player games to earn more chances at Extra Credit questions. If you correctly answer both Extra Credit questions in every game you play, this achievement should unlock during your 35th game.
Super Star - 50
Collect all of the Extra Credit stars
Each of the 21 subjects in the game has five Extra Credit stars available to be earned, meaning that you must earn a total of 105 Extra Credit stars for this achievement. You can track your progress by viewing the Extra Credit option in the main menu. Extra Credit stars are saved immediately, so you can quit out of a game once you've earned any possible Extra Credit stars and still have them count towards your progress.
Smart Alec - 10
Get 500 answers correct
Without a doubt, this is the most tedious achievement in the game. Just keep playing games in single-player and answer questions correctly, and eventually this achievement will unlock.
Fast Fingers - 10
Get an answer correct in under 3 seconds
This can be a tricky achievement to get simply because it can take longer than 3 seconds just to read a question and the four answer choices. However, if you're not afraid to potentially fail out a couple of times, you can simply pick an answer at random without reading the question and hope that you guessed correctly. Using this method, you've got a 25% chance at getting the achievement on your first try, and should by your fourth try unless you're unlucky.
Close Call - 10
Peek at your classmate's paper but don't follow
To unlock this achievement, you must use your Peek cheat, allowing you to see your classmate's response, answer something different from what your classmate responded, and still get the question correct. The easiest way to ensure this is to take note of what subject your 5th Grade-level questions are in and select a classmate who has neither of these subjects listed as one of their favorites. Most likely, if you peek at their response, it will be incorrect. Simply answer the question correctly, and you'll have this achievement.
Smarter Than a 5th Grader - 20
Win One Million Dollars in any game
This is the most straightforward achievement in the game. Simply answer the ten multiple choice questions given to you and the open-ended Million Dollar question to win the game and unlock this achievement. Each question is untimed, so if you run into trouble, consult Google for help on a question. Also, make certain to pay attention to which subjects are your classmates' favorites - should you need to use your cheats, you'll have a much better chance of being helped if the question you're answering is from one of your classmate's favorite subjects.
Teachers Pet - 15
Win One Million Dollars without cheating
In each game, you are given three cheats - Peek, allowing you to look at your classmate's answer and use it as advice, Copy, which will cause you to go along with whatever your classmate answered, and Save, which will allow you to continue if you get an answer wrong if your classmate gets the answer correct. To unlock this achievement, you must win a game without using any of these cheats. If you have trouble with this, remember that you can take as long as you need to consult any outside help to find the answers you need.
Ego Trip - 15
Win One Million Dollars in under 5 minutes
If you find yourself struggling with some of the more difficult questions, you're going to need to get a little lucky for this one. Under 5 minutes includes the time that Jeff Foxworthy spends talking, the time spent as classmates walk to and from the podium and - most importantly - any time that you spend pausing the game. Start with the more difficult questions, so that if you flunk out, you won't have invested too much time. Some of the higher difficulty questions are noticeably easier than others, so just keep trying until you get a set of questions you can manage. Also, realize that most of the animations can be skipped by pressing , so if you're running short on time, there's no need to watch every animation.
Big Win - 5
Come first in a multiplayer game
Very straightforward achievement. You can get this achievement by either winning an online multiplayer game or by winning a local multiplayer match so long as you have multiple controllers connected. The game will allow you to use just one controller for a local multiplayer match, but doing so will disable achievements. Also, if you do try and get this achievement online, it is to your benefit to drop out as soon as you have the victory in hand. If your opponents quit early, you will not get credit for the win.
The Great Achievement Hunt - 5
For me to know and you to find out
This achievement is earned by winning One Million Dollars on Jeff Foxworthy's birthday, which happens to be September 6. Use the strategies that you used for "Smarter Than a 5th Grader" to be able to win the million. As far as the date is concerned, if you don't happen to be playing on September 6, you can change the date on your console and get this to work as long as you are not connected to Xbox Live at the time.
