First of all, another member said that, not me. That member is a moderator but has a buisness to run along with many jobs and school too, so hardly frequents the forum anymore.john bunsenburner wrote:I think it is irresponsible to say such a thing at a so ridiculessly easy test...

In fact, I wont even take you seriously on here until you can prove to me that you passed this thing.
I also believe he is not being entirely serious, obviously if a good solvent-welding job can be seen on one of your cannons you'll be fine in his books. It was more or less a tactic to get as many people as possible to take the test.
Yes it is easy. I've discussed this in the above post. Solvent welding is very easy when you know what you are doing. IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE. It's hard to make a test about solvent welding hard, when the solvent welding is easy.
You really only need to learn a few basic facts and rules to know how to solvent weld. Such as the 'twist turn' as you push the PVC pipe and/or fittings together.
Also I don't see how the quote you posted is 'irresponsible'.
How easy the test is has nothing to do with anything, it teaches you how to solvent weld and that's what matters.
What's your problem?
If you're not using PVC in a cannon, then this test obviosuly doesn't apply to you, does it?
The test will be easy for some and hard for others. It depends how much you already know or have learnt. I found my trigonomics test quite easy, did some of my friends also find it easy? No. Because I had studied and they hadn't.
Until you can tell me exactly why you think this test is irresponsible, it'd be great if you stopped kicking up this dead topic for no reason. Don't tell me the test is 'too easy' either, because that's bullsh|t. It has nothing to do with anything and I have no idea why you think it does and why you think everything is irresponsible.
Use some common sense.
