Hi there, I tried the quiz, I got 29 out of 50 , not to bad for a brand new beekeeper.  I'll try again after a few months

I didn't think that was too bad.  I'm happy with 37, given the text was densigned for beekeepers in the US.

Some of the questions were tricky or irrelevant, i.e. going from celcius to farenheit, converting the months of the year around, km/h to m/ph. When trees found in america flower is kind of irrelevant in Australia.  

I, also failed the one about working the bees when the neighbours are having a party. That would depend on how far away your naighbours are wouldn't it?

Next time I shall use a calculator :).

Hi,
 You scored 19/50 correctly.
Ranking: You seem to have a working knowledge.

Working knowledge?
I've been looking around this site for about 2 hours. This is a pretty cool site.
My interest is definitley peaked.
I have no bees. But theres always tomorrow.

Well I squeaked by with a pathetic 32/50.  I've still got a long way to go!
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

35 out of 50 not too bad for a first year BeeKeeper i guess.  Probably helped that I've been reading the ABC-XYZ of BeeKeeping and joined this forum.
