New Agency Name – California Department of Fish and Wildlife

It sometimes takes the California Architects Board a little while to update things on the California Supplemental Exam and they have finally updated a state agency.


Video Tip 022.

California-Department-of-Fish-and-Wildlife-300x395The California Department of Fish and Game changed their name to California Department Fish and Wildlife on January 1, 2013. The change removed the word “Game” and replaced it with “Wildlife”, much to the chagrin of game hunters. But the California Architects Board had not updated the name change on the California Supplemental Exam prior to the Exam being suspended back in May.

The Exam started being administered again a few weeks ago on July 2 and it appears they have updated the agency name to California Department of Fish and Wildlife. This isn’t a big deal or big change, but you still want to pay attention as not to confuse it with the federal agency, U.S. Fish and Wildlife. As always, take your time reading the questions and carefully selecting your answers.

    Thanks David for this information. Is this one of many other changes after administering the exam back again on July 2?

      Hi Maria,

      It remains to be seen what kind of changes have occurred, however I don’t anticipate any major changes. I would imagine some tweaks here and there, but nothing to be overly concerned about. I think CAB was doing some more fine tuning which is something they have continued to do over the last 2.5 years since the multiple choice format came into existence.

      Thanks for checking out the video tip!

      Hi Tim,

      You’re most welcome my friend. It may not seem like it now, but the harder the journey, the greater the reward. I think a lot of candidates have been through what I call a character building exercise, all of this is just a test of our determination and only makes our character stronger. I actually haven’t met anyone who has given up yet – of course, they probably wouldn’t tell me if they did ;).

      Enjoy the summer and good luck come September, be sure to keep me posted.

      Aloha! David
