Sure, you know that Harry Potter’s patronus is a stag, but can you name the patronuses of all of the characters in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2”?

In terms of emotions, the bittersweet nostalgia of the eighth and final Harry Potter movie, which premieres tonight, has only been topped by the intense desire among Pottermaniacs to prove that they are ... Pottermaniacs.

As Tracy Grant points out in her heartwarming column today, an entire generation of children grew up with Harry, Hermione and Ron, and they know the series inside and out.

Here’s your chance. Prepare for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” by taking our O.W.L. exam. The quiz’s 10 questions cover the seven books, the eight movies and all of your favorite characters.

Beware: This is a tough one.
