17 on the first one. Some of the questions were confusing because they were not multiple choice and yet you could mark more than one. So it led you to believe it was multiple choice.

I haven't gone through the second one all the way yet. Mostly because there was not the obvious answer to the bear questions...crapping your pants.

I didnt do so hot and I have spent LOTS of time in the backcountry.  I agree, some of the questions were a bit confusing.  I thought too much about some!  Thanks for posting this!  It was fun!  +1 to you!

27 on the second one, though I felt like I did much worse than that.  I need to brush up on this stuff.

Well I didn't do to bad, I got 23 right.
It dose make you think, I found learning something from a book and doing what you've learned it in the real world are two different thing.
But I believe when it comes down to it we will do just fine.

And a 23 on the second.  On the questions that asked you to check all that apply, I seemed to routinely miss one.

20 on the first one.  I omitted a couple of correct answers on a couple of the answers that required more than one.

I haven't taken the second one yet.
