You should already be registered (free) in the Samurai Appliance Repair Forums before taking this exam.
Answer all questions and click the submit button to send your answers. The Academy will review them and notify you by email of your results. If you score 75% or higher (get at least 15 correct), you are eligible for a complimentary upgrade to Merit Apprentice Appliantologist. If you score 100%, then you are eligible for a complimentary upgrade to Buckaroo Banzai Appliantologist. Either way, if you pass the exam, you get full access to the repair forum so you can start new topics, post questions, and download attachments.
New versions of the exam will be published periodically. You may answer each exam version only one time. If you don't score at least 75% on your first try, then you'll need to either make a modest love-offering to the Samurai Appliance Repair Forums to become an Apprentice Appliantologist or wait until the next version of this exam is published in order to re-test.
You will need to re-take each exam version as they are released (periodically but infrequently) in order to reinstate your merit upgrade status. Think of it as continuing edumucation requirements, just like us professionals have to do.
