First I would like to say this is my first message.
Secondly this forum really makes the internet worth while to have (my girlfriend hates that, because I'm on the internet all the time now).
Finally my question. Does anyone have any good advice on passing the Houston Masters Test (test date 2/12/02)?

Thanks for everyone involved in this forum.

That was brought up below in the post "Master Exam". I have heard lot's of stories about electricians from Dallas trying to pass it. Maybe one of these guys can help.

Simple,

Welcome to the Forum,
The thing I found useful preparing for my exam was finding code references for practice questions. This will help you get more familiar with where things are.

Good Luck
Bill

Been there done that, HMEL #688. I will tell you that it is not easy. The test is 7 hours long, you will be in physical pain by the time you leave. The last time I checked part one was 125 questions closed book (2 hours). Part two is 5 hours with 10 multiple part questions. You should be prepared for Single family and multifamily dwellings standard and optional, schools, hospitals, offices (multistory), stores, machine shops, welders, elevators, 3 phase delta (high leg) problems that require balancing, an open delta was on the test that I took. Motor feeder problems, etc, etc, etc. You need to call San Jacinto South Campus, and get in touch with the instructor for Master's I & II. If you are in the Houston area, I would highly recommend that you go to the above classes. If you would like to discuss this further, e-mail me, and we can talk. Good Luck and God Bless.
