    I looked over the manuals for a hour or two. I mostly relied on my experience I learned over the years and asking questions. I passed test in 3 different states using this technique.

    I studied off and on for appr 4 days and then crammed for 2 days prior to the actual test;passed on the 1st attempt -I'd been in the business for some time so it wasn't too bad

    Reading the replies here does say much for your State tests. Maybe That is why I see so many Question here that I feel a Certified Operator should know. Now Florida is Famous for having the Hardest test in the nation. However Florida is also the Bug Capital of the Nation. Fungus and fertilizer are also an issue here. Our sandy soil does not hold chemical very well.

    Think People before you admit your tests are toooo easy. What does that say about you chosen professions.
