I will be taking the aptitude test in a few weeks and don't know what to study. I am switching careers and am currently a system support specialist in the financial field. I haven't taken an algebra course in 18 years. If anyone can give me some advice on what to study it would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry , yes it is for the inside wireman and is a 2.5 hour math and reading comprehension test. I just want to be prepared and do well on the test as i'm 39 and not getting any younger and don't want to have to re take the test.

It sounds like to me from what I read about you that you'll do great, since you've been a system support specialist. Most of the formulas we use electrical work are provided in the NEC2002; you just have to supply the variables. I've gotten a lot of help on this forum with formula-related questions, so make sure you ask! I hope it goes well for you.

One thing I just plain suck at is algebra. When I was in vocational school algebra was a requirement in order to be in the electrical program. Fortunately they made an exception for me because I had no trouble with the formulas when they were actually applied to something rather than xy this and that. Good luck!
