    Default b2) Beginners Beekeeping Books

    Our bee club is redesigning our beginners class. We've been distributing the Keith Delaplane book (can't remember name), but it's a little dated and bare bones. I'm looking for suggestions on the best beginners book.

    Have you checked out Jim Tew's web sight lately. He has his on-line video based beekeeping training program completed. After going to his sight onetew.com click on the link to the video training. This should be a major help with the beginner classes.

    We also use the Delaplane book.
