Default API GH Test Kit questions....

Does anyone here use their GH test by chance ? I always have a problem matching the coloration of the test to their charts. This one in particular since they are saying ,
First turns Orange and then to Green. Well, I can't tell worth a darn LOL !!
First drop on mine is a Clear/ Orange color. More clear than anything else. Then after the 1st drop, it starts to just barely turn to maybe a slight tinge of green ??? How Dark is that
green suppose to be in order to get an actual reading ?? I generally don't trust the accuracy of these tests but just wanted to get some sort of Idea here if at all possible.
Love to hear some feedback on this.
