Shane:

You need to look page two over again, several scored the same or better as me. I think I did wellbecause I'm a good test taker, and only an average beekeeper, surely the forum doesn't slow me down from being better, so I'll blame my own laziness.

40.  Didn't think that was bad for a 1st year beek.  Some questions missed pertained to queen raising.  Don't think I'm there yet.  :)

I said 6-7 pounds of honey per frame.

 :roll:It depends on the number of frames per honey super and or the spacing of the frames.
I have helped to check the weights of some very full 9 frames per super.
We weighed the super, extracted the honey, put the same frames back into the super, weighed the super and came up with 55 to 58 pounds!
Ten frames fully drawn out to the bottom bar should yield 3.5 to 4 pounds.
So, they need to change the questions structure.
I prefer the medium depth supers, 6 & 5/8" deep, for extracting

44/50 correct.

Apparently I'm an expert beekeeper (boy did they get that wrong!).

DW says it's because I'm reading to many beekeeping books :-)
