Welcome to ElectriciansForums.net - The American Electrical Advice Forum
Head straight to the main forums to chat by click here:  American Electrical Advice Forum

Hi all, i've been reading this forum over the last several Months and thought i'd take the plunge.
I'm leaving the Navy after 22 long years and start my 17th edition course tomorrow. I've also got Domestic Electrical Installers Course and a 2391 booked over the next few Weeks.
This forum is a great place for help and advice and i've passed the site on to a couple of sparks I know.
I'm just going to search for past exams for the 2382-10 and get my head in the red book :eek:

Thanks to all who have helped me decide this route.

Regards,
Mike

Welcome to forums Mike. do you have any back ground on electrical..??
My advice to you is study and get to know your way around the red book...exam is base on open book. I have found the Question 1 to 60 is start from chapter1 toward to end of the book, so don't close your book. in class am sure be getting a sample questions and work throught it in your own. and you might getting a similar question in the exam but do read the questions very carefully and watch out for the word NOT.

I found in the real exam you don't have that much time to find the answer in the book unless when question is reffer to a table...
I did the exam back in June, I didn't used the book much only reffer it to the table for an answer....i was quite lucky that i didn't get any calculation question...

Let me put your mind at rest...there was a guy missed out the first day of class and turn up in the second day and pass his exam on the next morning....

Ideally you should start doing the Part P first then 17th edition....give you much more knowlege ...best of luck....!!...let us know if you need any help...!!!.

PS: have you find any questions yet..??....not long ago i think Luke have post pass exam questions....

the results are available within 2-3 seconds of finishing the exam!

When my students finish the exam,I can generaly be handing them their results sheet before they reach the exams room door - why are they:confused: making you wait?
Seems a lot of colleges make you wait now Shakey. I had to wait 2 days.

I wonder why?

It annoys me a bit - you pay for the course, you pay to sit the exam, and the second you finish, that result becomes your intelectual property - what right does anybody have to withold that from you without good reason?:confused:

I got into a right argument with my local college when i did my 17th. I just done a exam, no course, took exam, passed (only 3 wrong) woman showed me the bar graph result sheet but would not let me have it, said it was for lectures feed back. Asked how that applied to me as i had not sat a course. 3 phone calls and 30 mins later they let me have the sheet.:mad:

Ruddy hell!

thats exactly what I am talking about - it is YOUR property

Arguably, the tutor should not be ALLOWED to see it. They should not be 'teaching to the exam' (well they definetely werent in your case!), and so indivudual results or breakdowns should be irrelevent to them.

They said that in a group exam if everyone got a low score in one section say equipment, it may show a defect in the course or the teaching methods of the college/lecturer. Stuck to my guns and threatened to hold a protest in the lobby and they gave in:D
