    From BDS if you want a current one.

    On my recent DSC1 I was told by the instructor that Deerquest was obsolete and hadn't been sold for some years.

    It may be re-issued one day, after updating.

    Reason I asked was that some of the answers on my old version were incorrect, and it doesn't cover the large game assessment.

    If you do get an old copy beware, it has a badly behaved installer which doesn't ask for permission before installing obsolete Microsoft Access 2000 runtime, which screwed up my machine badly. Disable any autorun before inserting the CD.

    The program itself is just an Access database, so if you have an up to date installation of Office all you need is a copy of the database files

    Its still a useful revision aid, provided you recognise when it gives the wrong answer.

    Pippa,

    Get the printed manual from your chosen assessment centre, it's the only way to go.
    You will not be disappointed. You will annotate it and keep it.

    Nothing to do with me but I found it a useful revision aid.
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"

    Hi Stan - I have an old DeerQuest CD, and a manual, from when I did the DSC1 several years ago (just after they brought the large game handling part into it). I did indeed make many notes in the book, and still refer to it on occasion...

    The original query about the cd was from Vinny...

    I was told by my DSC1 Assessor that the deer Quest cd was cr*p, and that many of the answers it gives you to the exam questions are wrong. I don't know how true it is but i wouldn't want to risk learning the wrong answers when the correct ones are to be found in the DSC manual.

    I found it invaluable, especially the deer recognition photographs.
