    Hi CCL,

    Here are two members from KY that have their licenses. Maybe you can PM them and get their feedback.

    The test isn't too bad if you study the material. Call the Dept of Agriculture and they will get you all the books needed to study for the test. It is alot of info but you should know all of this anyways if you are going to get your license. i studied about 3 weeks prior to my test. Everything on the test is in the books they will send you. Best of luck.

    Thanks Parker,
    I actually contacted the Univ. of Ky's agriculture dept. and they sent me a study pack free of charge. It contained a general study manual and a supplemental manual for ornamentals and turf/lawn. Your right it is alot of info, but I'm well into the manuals and have 2.5 weeks to finish up and review. Again thanks for your reply!!!
