Default Local 26 IBEW Test

Hey everyone just signed up! Im taking my apprenticeship test in a week and was wondering if there's anybody out there who has taken it for local 26 (DC) lately. Ive got a study guide that is giving me an idea but Im looking for a little more reassurance. I dont foresee any problems with mechanics and reading comprehension, I got that down I'm pretty sure... But what are the algebra parts like and is there anything else I should cover? I'm fairly confident but been out of high school a couple years and I fear I am rusty
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread or a repeat of another post!

Algebraic Expressions....google it. Was what I had studied from and looked at problems which were in the practice book. If you cant find something like that on the internet, then get some 7th graders book and study from that. 7th grade math will show you all the steps and how they got there. Good reference. I used my kids book to refresh too funny good luck. Just dont spend a lot of time on each math question. You only have about 2 minutes or less to answers those and you will use all the time for it! Reading part is easy...no worries to study any of that!

Thank you! So is this mostly all that is on the local 26 test? From what I understand different areas have different tests.

IMO you will stand a better time of employment in Local 26.

Just rumors.

I recently took the test for a different hall. While you will probably have a different test, I assume they will be similar. Of the 30 or so questions in the math section of my test, 4 or 5 were problems where they gave you a list of numbers and you had to figure out the next in the sequence.

For example: 4,7,13,25,49,X Find X

Here the answer would be X=97, multiply the number by 2 and subtract 1 to get the next number.

The ones on the test were a little more difficult but you get the idea. Practice these and finding x and y in 3x+2y=y+2 type problems and you should do fine. Hope this helps. Good luck.
