Studying for the electrical exam can be daunting if you don't have a study plan or join a class. Here are some tips we put together for you, we wanted to make sure you don't miss out on these!

Tip #112 Transformer Questions

Transformer questions are actually quite simple, however the state exam writers intentionally include a lot of distracting information. The unprepared test taker will read too much into a transformer question and then draw a complete blank. However, if it asks to size the maximum or minimum short circuit, ground-fault, or any other over current protection device, that’s simply a table reference with possibly a small calculation needed.

Tip #139 Review All Questions in the Electrical Exam

One of the true and tried pieces of advice I can pass along to you is to review all of the questions in the electrical exam and do the following:

  • Answer the questions you know - without a doubt- get them out of the way.
  • Mark or tag the questions you might know but aren’t sure and need to reference the NEC book for the answer.
  • Skip the ones that are too hard then come back to those after you answer the ones you marked.

Tip #102- NEC Layout

There is simply no substitution for not knowing and understanding the LAYOUT of the basic framework of the National Electrical Code® book. Knowing the breakdown of Chapter Two, for example, will help you quickly find an answer that deals with minimum layout and receptacle placements, or load calculation questions.
