On the rules, it says that you only need to know UTM and Profiling at a basic level, but I have never even seen them on a test before. Just in case UTM is on the test at states, does anyone have some good resources for UTM because they confuse me.

So, when I measure distance from one city to the next, how do I know where at the city to end/put my measuring device? It never says where, just measure the distance between these two cities... I don't know where to measure. Any help?

On many (however not as recently) maps there are mileage charts where you can use it just by locating the two cities names and matching them to find the mileage. On more maps, there is a graph/chart with most of the major cities with lines going from city to city and it works well if you need cities that are only connected by one line. If the cities are connected by two or more lines, it still works but not as well, and I probably would not use it. It would be easier to understand this if you are looking at a map now. If a map has neither of these I would put the measuring device in the middle of each city, but that is a personal preference. Also, may I ask what "measuring device" you are using?
