Mick
On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,

I scored a 31/50 for a new beekeeper I think that is pretty good.  Considering I read a lot of bee books.

Tried twice.  Got a 36 both times.  Didn't miss the same questions twice.

Thank you for this test.  I am an absolute novice, new to this site and have never worked with a bee yet.
The test will help a lot.
I scored a 22
Thanks again.

The color has to do with what year the queen was raised.

30/50 - not too bad :-\
I've chosen understanding over knowledge-since knowledge is all about knowing where to find facts and understanding is knowing how to manipulate knowledge...I've also chosen knowledge over beliefs!! We all need to..

I took the test twice 2 days apart. I scored a 22/50 at first but today I scored a 28/50, an Adequate beekeeper.
Between the two scores I read a website with information and the book Fruitless Fall by Rowan Jacobson. It was very informative on getting me up to date on the current problems we're having with bees and the other struggling pollinators.

The test seems to be a good general guide on knowledge.
