Hi,

Anyone here taking the aptitude test for local 48 out of portland? I have my test for the apprenticeship on tuesday june 20th 2007 8am sharp. Can anyone tell me if you have taken it recently if there is other math on the test besides algebra such as add, sub, div, fractions ect? Did you feel you had plenty of time for the math part and the reading parts? I thank anyone here for any input you have for me, i'm nervous i just need to relax lol, its just that i hate the whole test thing anyways, i'm not a test guy lol.

thanks
Tony

I don't know Local 48 situation, but...
I tell my students to RELAX as a first step
Then, determine the number of questions in each part of a multi-part test and the time for each part. Divide the time in minutes by the number of questions; that's your 'time limit' per question. Don't dwell on any question to prevent running out of time. Pass the 'tough' ones up, & go back to them.

Don't forget percentages in addition to the above subjects.

Good Luck...RELAX

Don't second guess yourself.

Get ready for the interview. I already told you about it in an earlier post.

You will find many an electrician VERY sympathetic with the carpenters right now. As long as you give 8-4-8, have attention to detail, and respect others, you won't sit at home.
