Anyone want to help me study for my exam? I can read the first two in my book, but could always use someone shooting questions at me. The third sounds like 'can you read/make charts', though I may be wrong. And the fourth sounds like 'can you be a leader and not just a follower'.

1. Breeding and diseases of laboratory animals - These questions test the candidate's knowledge of laboratory animal genetics; breeding; immunizations and disease transmission; diseases and parasites; determining the sex of laboratory animals; their reproductive characteristics, litter sizes, and special traits of species used in medical research.
2. Care and handling of laboratory animals - These questions test for knowledge of body sites for tissue sampling and injections; the function of various organs; basic terminology related to laboratory animals; handling techniques; requirements for housing various species; and employee safety in the laboratory animal setting.
3. Record keeping and methods of marking animals - These questions test for the skills needed to take data as presented and enter it on a form according to a set of rules or instructions; to combine or compile the information according to given procedures; and to extract information from the form after it has been given to the candidate. These questions also evaluate the candidate's knowledge of different methods of marking and identifying various species of laboratory animals.
4. Supervision - These questions test for knowledge of the principles and practices employed in planning, organizing, and controlling the activities of a work unit toward predetermined objectives. The concepts covered, usually in a situational question format, include such topics as assigning and reviewing work; evaluating performance; maintaining work standards; motivating and developing subordinates; implementing procedural change; increasing efficiency; and dealing with problems of absenteeism, morale, and discipline.

I think I can do this. If I score well, it will, more or less, be back to working my favorite job again. Sitting in a lab doing what needs to be done with my headphones in and leaving at the end of the day.

It isn't my dream job. My dream job would be doing that for a zoo. But honestly? This comes in a very very close second. And the fact it would mean working for the state? Awesome.
