Going for my core test and 07 test feb 25th and 06 test the following month.Hope i am ready,i know it seems quick but like i have stated before its balls to the walls.I figure why should i sub out my fert and pest if i think i am able to do it myself. I believe with the amount of homework and studing i have been doing i will pass these test when the time comes and if i dont then i will know its not time yet no big deal. I also look at it this way,lets say i dont get as many accounts that i am looking to get come season start for lawn mowing,atleast if i have my aplicators license maybe i can get a few days work subbing for my neighbor who has more work then he can handle. I have confidence that i will pass though and then i will go along with my neigbor for alittle and learn as much as possible before i start applying on my own! Im sure some are going to say i should wait and thats fine but for me its always all out or stay home.
