I have the answers, and will post the correct ones soon. I am going to give it another day or two in case anyone else wants to post.

Cindi...you did a great job on the questions!

Chapter One - 100%

Chapter Two - Question 3 was 1/250. A shutter speed of 1/250 would be sufficient to stop the action, so 1/500 would not be necessary.

Chapter Three - Question 3 was choose the area that will be in focus.
A wide-area focus system feature does not affect shutter speed.

Good job, and thank you for participating!

Thanks Jenny, was hoping to stir discussion, but maybe in the next chapter. :)

Thanks for the effort! I am trying, but am not having much luck. Any chance you would be interested in the live discussion?

I'd be interested. Maybe we could start with once a week. What times work for you.

I'm a little behind on this thread. I just took the tests, and comparing my answers to Cindi, I passed chapter 1, missed one on chapter 2, and need to READ chapter 3!! I read it awhile ago, but obviously need to do it again!! I will get caught up on the studying this week!

I'm not sure how to discuss in this thread - maybe when I have studied I will have more questions or comments to post. Don't give up yet, we will get discussions going!!

I won't bother to post my answers now since I'm behind.

Hey Jenny - are you in Cheyenne/Lander? I think I met you at our Wyoming PPA conference last year. I could be wrong - but your avatar looks like a Jenny I remember.

I'm new here but I would very much be up for a discussion group as well.

Lori...Yes I am from Lander! HAHA! I kept thinking that your photo looked familiar, but thought "How can that be?" Are you going to Imaging this year?

Billy...we are on chapter 4 this week, so work on getting caught up right now. We will be holding a live discussion each week. If you are interested in participating in that, then please send me a private message telling me when you are available. I will be setting the day and time later today or tomorrow. Live discussions will be beneficial to anyone serious about taking the test.

Photography by Barbara London, 9th edition. It is the book used to study for the CPP exam.

I have the 8th edition. Given the expense of the book I'm hoping to avoid having to purchase the 9th. I do study quite a bit of other material so hopefully I can cover for the lack of the 9th edition.

You should be fine with the 8th edition. There are several others using that edition as well.
