i have taken this test twice ones a few years ago and once earlier this year. on both tests they said that i missed the same amount of questions. dont ask me how i have studied the entire code book and read numerous adc books and deal with animals all the time. i need to get this permit because in the line of work i do i have to deal with these situations all the time and need to be able to do it myself. as fare as i know the only people that ever get it in my area are the same people every year. i know another guy that has the same problem with the test. does anybody have any suggestions on how i can pass this test. please help. suggest some literature or something else i can do to try again. i think if i take it and fail again i wont be able to take it for a wial.

I love the multiple choice part. instructor didn't tell us that we had to choose "all" correct answers. I sat at question one for about ten minutes trying to figure out how to answer a question that had three correct answers.

Test is designed to fail. The items they tell you to study all contradict each other. But the test is passable.

y son took the test twice this spring. 77 the first time, 89 the second time. He told me that the internet book the state told him to read were the cloest (sp) to the right answers. In all the state recommended several books. Every book had different answers. Made the test hard. Also as was stated, some of the multiple choice had one right answer and some had all right answers. I took the test 21 years ago. Was a piece of cake at that time. Not now.

Does all the worker of company's Illinois all have to take the test or is just the owners . How much does it cost for this test . I know I took that NWCOA test and I did pass but it was more like mader of opinion . Could they be making it harder to limit the number opperators .

Just the owner of a company have to take the test. Good forever as long as you send in your yearly reports. I believe it is still free to take.

Still a free test. Everyone doing anything with the business must pass the test.

Was told several years ago by a DNR employee that anyone who works in the field has to be licensed personally.

How true Nate! The test is VERY passable. Just read the material the DNR recommends and then do some outsourcing too! READ READ READ!
I do not care how good of a trapper you are, you need to study the material the State WANTS you to know!

Jim is right-on with this info! I ran into the same scenario when answering some questions, some answers from textbooks didn't match the options on the test questions exactly. Luckliy I had read OTHER information on specific species and that is what got me through the 1st try.

I have been studying to take this test. Does the test have to be taken in Springfield, or are there other locations?

Test can be taken in several other locations. A state biolagest(s) will give the test. Which everone is closest to you. Get hold of the regein office you are in. Location and phone number should be on the back of the rules flier.

I would think that Galesburg would be the closest for you. Call your district wildlife biologist and schedule an appointment. I took it twice this year. First time scored a 76 and then a 90 the second time. You definitely need to study.

Are you really talking about the NWCOA's test [As in, the National Wildlife Control Operator's Association (NWCOA)] or did you just mis-type? Because I can guarantee you didn't take the NWCOA test. In fact I would bet you your best service vehicle and your entire business bank account that you didn't take that test. I wrote that test and only had two people take it for test question validation purposes, and you weren't one of them.
