    Best way to test your knowledge is out there with your camera in your hand.
    And why would you want to test your knowledge? I mean, the level of any photographer is determined by the photographs he takes, not by the quantity of his knowledge about shutter speed aperture etc.

    My opinion, read, shoot, shoot again, read again, shoot, shoot, shoot, a bit of reading followed by a lot of shooting. There is no photographer which learned to take pictures by reading books :D

    Good luck. :)

    well i only want to test my knowledge because i'd like to possibly be a photography teacher some day.. i can't teach if i'm not able to take tests myself and make sure that i know--and able to explain/teach-- what people seek to learn... taking tests is just one way...;)

    http://www.dpreview.com/ look at this and read some camera tests, then see how much of it you really understood, also take a look at the glossary and cover up the meanings.

    i can go out and create as many beautiful pictures as i desire--because i do understand the basics..but when someone asks how i'm doing it, that's when i stumble a bit...

    Shoot in RAW...read the EXIF data...Explain the outcome...Open Lightroom and predict an outcome based on using a slider before you actually use it...Get Understanding Exposure and when you feel like you can anticipate what the next few paragraphs are about & explain how they fx photographs, you deserve an A in science. I'd say that when you have @ least 10 photos that you find artistically pleasing from the 20,000 you've shot you deserve a :thumbup: in art, but not an A.:camera:

    have a good one

    you've read my mind...that's exactly my standing point.
    i took basic photography two times (among many other photography classes after taking the first basic--and passed with A's only because of my artistic ability). the first time (i took basic) i couldn't care any less about anything technical in photography.. i just wanted to have my merry way with photo taking and print images my self... the second time (this summer), all i was concerned about was learning the science.. but i still need more..practice practice practice...
