    Is this sentence correct

    If the knowledge of all covered topics was not tested, it would be great for all of us, if we knew the exact chapters that would be tested tomorrow.

    It doesn't work for me. I would use something like:

    If not everything is tested, it would be great for all of us if we knew exactly what will be tested tomorrow.

    Or even: If the test will not cover every topic, it would be helpful to know exactly what it will cover.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Is this sentence correct

    Could you please tell me what kind of conditional sentences is this "If the test will not cover every topic, it would be helpful to know exactly what it will cover"?
