Default Hi Guys!!!

I haven't visited this forum in a long time.

I recommended it to a couple apprentices and then realized how long its been.

I am studying for my E1. . About time!!!

Not sure when my test date is but. . I think I'm ready!!

Any CT electricians here who've taken the journeyman portion recently? I'm looking for any and all kinds of help on what to expect

I remember you from a while ago.

Unfortunately, I'm in Nevada and they don't license journeymen here so I can't help much with the test but I certainly do wish you the best of luck!

Since most tests are pass/fail based on a minimum score (often it's 70%), here's how I do them;

1) Answer all questions that I know for sure. Figure my score. Even after subtracting a few points (mainly because I'm not all that bright sometimes........lol), I'm usually somewhere around 40 - 60%.

2) Do the questions that involve calculations. I usually figure I'll get about half of these right. Figure my score again.

3) If the above figure is close to the minimum, I'll take my best guess at the rest.

4) Never leave a question unanswered. An unanswered question is automatically wrong, with a guess you have a chance of getting it right.

This method has worked well for 4 airplane pilot tests and my Union Journeyman test.

Remember that this type of test has nothing to do with your abilities as an electrician, it's sole purpose is to see if you can pass a test. Further, a 70% is every bit as good as a 100%.

Control work is my favorite, by far.

The plant I'm working on now has 2 parts. One part had the PLC cabinet already built. Of course it had a few mistakes......lol, but it's in good shape now.

The other part is just beginning. When the stuff shows up, I'll build the cabinet, work with the other guys pulling the wire and terminate everything.

Pretty much the only thing I don't do is program, they have a pretty good programmer who knows what he is doing and is easy to work with.

I really enjoy this type of work, it doesn't get any better!
