Here's a link directly to the FAA document so you can read it and study for it yourself:
No I'm down here in Oz and we can fly a sub 2kg drone commercially under the "excluded" category without doing any tests.Huh? Did you take the Part 107 test? It's not rocket science at all if you study just a little bit. It's 60 questions and you only have to score 70% or higher.

I just had a quick look at the table of contents and saw weather etc and thought they were going a bit far.
Thanks for the explanation.One thing that many of us who fly Phantoms or similar platforms tend to forget (or may not even know) is that Part 107 is about a lot more than just simple quads like the Phantoms. We have to keep in mind that Part 107 encompasses small multirotors, medium and large multirotors as well as large fixed wing aircraft. Sometimes weather, airport operations, and many other aspects can come into play with larger more complex air-frames. Part 107 "touches" on aspects across a broad range of aircraft and mission possibilities.
If you're preparing for your initial Part 107 exam, nothing has changed. You can do it now. If you're referring to the recertification (recurrency) exam, there would be no reason to take it any earlier than August (or whatever month you did take your initial exam in).So the effective date for the new test criteria goes into effect immediately? I couldn’t find a date. I’ve been studying the current exam and was about ready to schedule a test. This throws a wrench in my plans
