If I’m not sure how to answer certain questions on the application, is it okay to write my best guess?
No. When you sign your application form, you sign an affirmation which indicates that the information you provide is true and complete. This affirmation is signed under penalties of perjury. If you are not certain of the appropriate response to an item on the application form, it is your obligation to look into the matter and make sure your response is correct. Providing incorrect information may result in the disapproval of your application, disqualification from taking an examination, and/or removal from office if discovered after appointment.
