This book covers each state and their requirements for the applicant to take their license exam. Most states differ in their requirements as you will note. The three keys in preparing and passing an electrical exam are:
2. general math
3. retention (retaining what you have read)
I had a lady student years ago who worked for an electrical contractor handling payroll and clerical work. She had never connected a wire in her life, but had the three key assests, she loved to read, used math daily in her work, and was very good at retaining what she was properly taught in class. She passed the master exam on the first attempt with a 76% score.
The exam applicant's first step is to obtain the Bulletin of Information by contacting the contact listed for each state in this book.
Each BOI contains:
• The total number of questions on the exam, the maximum time allowed to take the exam and the percentage needed to pass the exam.
• The scope of the exam.
• A content outline that lists all areas covered in the exam and the approximate number of questions drawn from each area.
• A list of references that were used to develop the exam in accordance with the requirements of local jurisdictions, including those references that may be used during the exam.
As you look at the scope of the exam and the categories in which you are to be questioned, you need to determine your strengths and weakness categories.
With test taking, it's not what we don't know that hurts, it's what we know that ain't so!
Always check the BOI for your area as several states have different rules and updates on what NEC is being used for the current exam.
