These brief statements describe what you are expected to learn after reading that chapter, allowing you to study more effectively for DPR s pesticide applicator licensing (QAL/QAC) exams. These knowledge expectations are also highlighted in sidebars throughout each chapter, providing a study roadmap so you know which sections of each chapter are most important.
