Anyone taken the MO. licensing exam?

I'm taking my core and cat 3 test Feb 10th. For those that have taken the exam, is both areas multiple choice and how long and hard of a test is it. Also after you pass the exam what do you have to submit to get your license and how much does it cost?

All answer will be of great help......

If I take the test it will be late Jan or early Feb. I am trying to get insurance quotes right now and make sure that the rates will not be too high.

Both parts of the test were multiple choice when I took it five years ago. There were also 5-10 pictures I had to identify, plants, insects, and diseases. I didn't think it was really hard, but I did study quite a bit prior to taking the test.

I guarantee you that if you don't study your azz off the results won't be good. I took it also about 5 years ago, studied long and hard, and got a 75. WHEW! I really don't want to take it again................Lynn

I took the test last year and scored in the high 80's in the core and in the 80's in the cat. 3 part. I studied my arse off and it was not bad. I worried more about trying to figure out what was important, and remember all the material. On multiple choice questions, the answer is there and will pop out at you if you study the books that you have to buy for study material.
