We have gotten many calls lately asking us if we provide a question answer memorization style of teaching. The short answer is no. We do not believe in handing out the fish, we believe in teaching our students how to fish. That and this isn't high school, we aren't studying for a history exam.
Unfortunately, there are organizations still out there whose philosophy remains the same since before 2008. Why specifically 2008? In Texas the electrical exam changed drastically that year. Before that change the exam was fairly easy to pass to the point where memorization was possible and could result in a passing score. Since the change the content changed, the level of difficulty changed, and the contractor delivering examinations was replaced with PSI.
To say that memorizing a series of questions and answers and successfully passing the exam is not only misleading but a waste of time. The time that you could have spent preparing properly for the exam to give you a solid chance at passing is being wasted on memorizing questions you may not ever see during an exam. As we have discussed in this blog before, PSI and TDLR they have designed the exam to avoid such things as copying, memorization, and exposing information from the exam. In the first place sharing such information is punishable to those who are caught by having their licenses revoked. Second of all the library of questions is hugely immense that if you were to take the exam 10 times over the chances of you encountering the same question twice is very unlikely. Please note that I didn't say completely impossible, but do you really have the time and money to invest in a highly risky method of preparing for the exam?
