Allegedly an "excellent beekeeper" (I keep hearing this Emperor Palpatine's voice) but this may not be entirely fair; there's at least 5 questions I got right that were guesses.  I won't tell if you won't...

I tried butdidn'tt get it to work, it is ok, thanks, bye

IE wouldn't work for me either...But firefox worked.  You might  try another browser or try to unlock your current browser settings.  :)

38 here....But there were some questions outside my bee interests, and some questions that needed more information to consider all the possible iterations.  It was fun!  :)

It says I am a formidable beekeeper.  I got 35/50.

Geez, I am so embarrased.   :embarassed:  So, I took it again and got 40/50, now I am an excellent beekeeper.  Whew, now I feel better.  LOL

There were some tough quesitons, like what was the economical impact of honey bee polination in 2001...   :?

If you decide to take the test, let us know how you did!

Wow - 32 out of 50, and I don't even own my own hives yet! I know a number of those were just good guesses, but I think maybe all my studying has done me some good. There's hope for me as a beek yet!

You scored 36/50 correctly.

A few questions specific to the USA which I did not know.

I guess I know more than I thought. Still lots to learn though.

43.  Nice that it gives you the answers right after.  The number ones tripped me up,  number of crops, billions of dollars stuff.
Not sure if I need to remember stats from 2001.  Pretty good test.
