Default practicing for the CA pesticide Private Applicator exam

As mentioned in Why I use synthetic pesticides, I am studying for a California pesticide applicator's license.

I wrote a computer program to ask me the practice exam questions from the study guide in random orders.

I hope you had the questions in electronical form and didn't have to input them manually. Nice job btw. Thanks.

From 95 percent it's logical, what about the other 5 percent? Use driver license trick: The longest answer is usually the correct one. Score 78/80. WOOOHOOOOO.

The best answer was with fire pesticides: Call family and neighbors? I wonder if anyone in the history has ticked that answer. Obviously not the right one.

I scored a 81.25%. 65/80 correct answers. I missed some CA specific questions and some safety information location ones as well. Pretty good for no training...I guess.

Good job folks! The county office tells me that the actual exam is a bit shorter and you must score 70% or more to pass.

My dad is a farmer and just had to do his pesticide exam this summer so he is able to purchase/use such substances. I didn't even know such a thing existed until then....but I guess it's good that they make sure people using dangerous chemicals know what they're doing, huh?

Getting the manual is a good idea too because there are reporting requirements which folks might be unaware of.
