    Here is a little beekeeping test, designed for multiple takes. Each time you take it, you get a different set of questions.

    Give it a try, OR TWO, OR THREE............. and post your results back here.

    44/50, I think some questions were not worded very well, but it was a really cool test.

    I have taken this test before and scored mid 40's (exhalted or something like that). The only trick for us up here is that there are a few questions that deal strictly with issues that are restricted to the USA. A lucky guess or two didn't hurt.
    Otherwise I am sure I would have scored 50!!!!!!! :lol: :rolling: :rotfl:

    OK, I never claimed to be the sharpest knife in the drawer: 38/50.

    Probably would have been in the teens had it not been for some of the discussions on this forum. :)

    29/50, reasonable I think as I don't have bees yet and have only been reading this and other forums for 3 months. At least 3 or 4 Q's were USA geographic/economic related which I had no idea about plus I read a couple of Q's incorrectly. The test is good because it gives you the answers to the ones you got wrong so you can learn. I hate doing exams and never finding out what I got wrong. All in all good fun!

    Be sure to take it a few times. It doesn't give the same questions each time. As you said, it's a good learning tool.

    Yes I'll come back and have another go, in between reading/learning more from the forum. It would be good if it was in METRIC as well!

    43/50, that was much better, only 1 geographic USA question, nill economic USA Q's, I missed 2 Q's about different types of trees in the USA though, took my time to READ the Q's properly this time, all in all a lot better. Lots of good questions, a great learning experience!

    yeah some of the questions are worded kind of funny and will mislead you if not read carefully.

    34/50. Not bad considering I am currently in the process of trapping out my first bees (first of my own, anyway...).
