Hey, I purchased a gardening business here locally and I am now trying to obtain my Qualified Applicators License here in the state of California. I have been trying to wrap my mind around the book I bought that is in preparation of the test and have been just blown away, its completely over my head the amount of superfluous information. I have absolutely no experience in the difference between an aphid or an arachnid pretty much. (bit of an exaggeration, but you get my point) I am losing money rapidly, as this is an integral part of the business. I assumed this would be perhaps a bit easier. I am not finding any trial tests that I can take as practice or even any books that help you to study for the test. I live over 240 miles from the nearest testing location and most of the gardeners here spray illegally. I need assistance desperately. Thanks.
