Okay, I just joined. A little tidbit of info: been doing this a long time and still don't know everything about electricity. I continue to find out out that no matter how much I've learned, there's so much more for me to learn. I worked with a company for 15 years. Got laid off. Watching the company vechile drive down my road was like watching the past 15 years of my life roll down the highway. Have not being able to find a job, so with family and friends behind me, I will be taking the North Carolina limited exam in Asheville next month, and I feel that I may have bit off more than I can chew. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.

Welcome! I'm a new guy also.
From my experiences with testing you are better off not thinking about it and just go take the test to get a feel for what you know and do not know.

I was in a similar situation as yourself but saw it coming 3 years before it actually happened. I always thought I wasn't good enough to get a license and by that I mean book smart because I was always more of the hands on type.

The hard part is after you get your license, learning to be a business man and how to get more work. Go sign up for the test and take it you have nothing to loose.
