Hey Sean, welcome aboard, what's up? Did you go to school or you just got the book and studied it?

Why so long though? Seems like you'll get them ASAP once you finish studying the books. That's more $$ in your pockets!!!

Its near impossible to just read the books and then pass the exams. Alot of stuff on the test you dont learn from the books. Only reason i passed irrigation is becuz im been practicing hands on.
