What were the satellite map questions like? Did they closely follow the rules, and what were the actual maps like?

I dont think there were any satellite questions but ngl i have short term memory loss.... i remember it being a pretty standard test, kind of easy tho (dont know if i can say that)

Hello, sorry Dxu that I have not responded to your earlier question... I remember it basically like a normal Road Scholar test just maybe a little harder in some situations.

i feel like the map drawing was kinda tricky, incorporated azimuths, bearings, and things other than just symbols.

That's a normal map drawing (or at least in my state and region), don't worry.

I feel like they include all ambiguous symbols; symbols such as airport symbols are basically just mini planes, common sense. Also, sometimes maps have inclusive legends in the bottom, more commonly in highway maps than topo maps.
