    Use common sense. Read ?'s carefully, some are repeat questions only worded different. I took mine in 96 it should not have changed too much. It was easy if you just think it out.

    Besure you have looked over your weeds and can ID them in blakc and white view, and cover all safety material well, especially label requirements. Should take the time to review your fungicides, insecticides, and herbicides. Some diseases and which fungiide works on them. If you cover the material offered for the test you should be able to get by ok. Good Luck!

    I'm not sure about Ohio's test in particular, but I've taken
    tests in Ky,Ny,and Mi. Most are very similar in the info
    that they ask. Know your laws, FIFRA,FEPCA,RICRA,ect. Understand how to read a label, where to find information. Here in Mi, there are a min. of 2 tests. One
    based on the core manual(laws,labels,safety,ect.)and one for any catagories that you are certifying in. Read your manuals thru at least twice,if your manuals have questions at the back of the chapters, and you can answer them or at least understand them, you should have no problems passing the tests. All of the tests I have taken have been T/F and multi-choice. good luck,if you have specific questions, I can help.
