    hello Custom Cuts
    You will be calling Dr. Mary Grodner's office. The telephone # is 225-318-2364, for test booklets. Tell them where you live and they will tell you where to call to set up time and place for test.
    If you let them know what tests you want to take they will send you the correct booklets. The last ones I got were $5 each. They will also let you know how much the tests are to take. If you are doing turf and ornamental, my advice is really study the thin booklet, it almost caught me.

    I forgot you already had the books. You call LDAG&FOR for test places. the only place i know to do that is in Baton Rouge. They are on Florida Blvd. They have a web site, Louisiana Department Agriculture and Forestry. They have a page for pesticide applicators, I believe the pnone number is there. Look it up and call them, they will set you right up with a time to come in. You go in the front door at their building and their office will be on your left. that's where you take that test. GOOD LUCK
