Hey Joe;

I just took the test and passed myself. Does this test have any significance to it? Or is it more for evaluation?

Andy:

A passing grade is required to be able to join their association. I found some of the questions much too easy, and others not well written.

I liked the format and time limit and will look into it for my own use. We could have some fun seeing who could get the highest score.

On another note, I prefer not to criticize others behind their backs, as someone already did!

If anyone has any negative comments about this test they should be directed to the source!

Uh-oh...

Although I did well on the test, it seems that 10% of my wrong answers were "electrical related"

I got a 90 also. Wonder about that. You are right, some questions are pretty vague.

Who criticized someone behind their back? I don't see such a post in this thread.

I got an 84. They said that I was weak on the exterior portion. [Linked Image]
Maybe I should have taken more time ( I had 34 minutes left on test)

Thanks for the link Joe.
