Beekeeping Test..
« on: February 06, 2005, 07:38:21 PM »
Hey, all you beekeeping experts (self and otherwise proclaimed), do you want to test your beekeeping knowledge?

I ran across this site this afternoon.  Located at goodbeekeeping.com's website, it is a 50 question test to see how much you know about the subject.  If you take the test more than once, some of the questions will be different because the questions are randomly selected from a data base of a bunch of questions.  The first time I took it, I scored 25 of 50.  The second time, I scored 38 of 50.  I figure I'll leave well enough alone and not take it again!

If you want to take the test, click:

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

Hve fun!

I got a 41. Considering I don't have any bees yet, I guess that shows that lurking around a site like this can be very educational!

Hi all,

Ryan, I hate it that it wouldn't work for you!  Maybe one of us will run across another test or the like and it will work for you.

Well, after seeing everyone else's scores, I don't feel so bad about mine! LOL  Lesli, you are correct.  For a score of 38, they say that we are "formidable" (formidable >adjective inspiring fear or respect through being impressively large, powerful, or capable.  From the dictionary in my "Wrod Perfect II" program) beekeepers!  Great job everybody!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed this.  If you have, let me know.  I'll be glad to share with all of you any other "interesting" things concerning honey bees that I come across!

Bee Good,
beebiz

36/50 here, but I agree with TT, some of their awnsers are up for review. I got caught on how many lbs of honey in a full frame. I said 6-7 they said 5-6. Oh well, no use sour grapeing! :lol:

Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled

And fired the shot heard round the world

No sour grapes here, either, but yes, I thought a few questions were ambiguous. But then, there are a lot of things about beekeeping that are like that. :)

Darn, it won't work for me either. I can get to the first page, but the test won't load. Probabbly has something to do with the wireless, it acts up sometimes.
