I can not remember anything about Lisp programming.
However, I do remember the Lab project that required one to place 8 Queens
on a chess board so that none were vulnerable to another.

It took me 42 instructions, 42 actual hours of programming over a weeks period.
I think the host was a VAX 11-780.  That is as close to an IQ test as I care to get!

John McCarthy was a great man.
