    I'm hoping my good news will come tomorrow or friday. I wish our test was open book. The test over our general manual-for any kind of pesticide applicatation, is 75 questions, and the turf was 100. Gotta have at least a 75 to pass. KS must be a lot tougher, cell phones aren't even allowed in the room-camera phones/texting I guess, and some places won't even let you have your manuals in the building. Congratulations on your accomplishment though.

    Here they give you the book and the test at the start of the exam. Had to be able to search and find the answer without seeing the material first.

    Any kind of time limit on taking the test with the book?

    I think 8 hour time limit. No outside help (cheating) or anything like that. In a room all by myself books and papers all over the place.

    Every two years you can either take a class or re-take the test to stay certified.
