Subject: Beer Judge Exam Study Guide
Date: 1992-02-28 09:22:01 GMT

I have been working on a Beer Judge Exam Study Guide with the Beer Judge
Mailing List. I will be release the guide on JudgeNet tomorrow. If you are
not on JudgeNet, and would like a copy, send a request with your email address
to chuck@synchro.com. The guide is about 15 pages long. If there is a *LOT*
of interest, I might consider posting it, but its almost 20k. I could post it
in pieces.

INTRODUCTION

This guide is intended to identify the specific areas of knowledge that are
required to pass the BJCP exam. It is not intended to teach you what you need
to know to pass the exam, but rather to help you organize your thoughts and
identify topics that deserve further study. The bibliography can help
you locate sources for further information, however there is no substitute for
experience.
