Evening all!

I have been doing my 2382 exam simulator..

I did terrible!!

Am i right in thinking that ALL questions asked in the 17th regs book can be found in the big red book??

I understand some of these may be simple questions and easy for many of you to answer. But could you tell me the reg number that will give me these answers??

Its taking me ages to scroll through the book.

Sid,

Did you do the full course or just the
update?

Some of the answers are in the BRB and some of them are things which you should have been taught.

1 Zs=Ze +(R1+R2)

2 Sec 445

3 411.5.3

4 not sure yet.

5 411.3.1.2

I think it's (a) square route of 3 x Uo.

That would give arround 400v which seems about right to me.

Sid,

The idea of the course is to show you the way round the regs book (amongst other things).

Also, the way the questions are put can sometimes be very confusing, making you read too much into.

Other times they word the question in such a way that you simply get the answer the wrong way round and its in there for you to tick as well.

The link that Mr G posted is very good and will help you understand the way their mind works.

Good luck!

Cheers J.

Yeah some of the questions are very tricky, im trying to break it down and pick words out that might instantly determine what section of the book to go to, but then some questions incoparate 2 different sets of words that without knowing could be in 1 of 2 sections of the book.. this is where my time is getting wasted.

I really appreciate your help guys.. This forum is the dogs Bo**ocks!

I wish there was more time to find each question, what a pain in the arse!
At first i thought 2 mins per question was loads of time.. Now i think 20 mins wouldnt be long enough!

Im struggling to determine from the question what part of the book i should go stright too.. Why am i finding it so hard.. surely the clue is in the question?

Heres an example..

What clue is this question giving you to tell you to go to section "****" in the book for the answer ???

You should find the answer under RCM or Residual Current Monitor.

With questions like this you need to pick out the two 'parts' as it were.

For example 'RCD' or 'RCM'.

The index at the back is fairly good and usually guides in the right direction.

Just out of interest, are you doing home study or are you at a training centre?

If you are at a training centre then they should have explained roughly how the regs work.

I have not started my 2382 regs course yet, it starts next week. So i will be taught more on it then..

Im just trying to get a head start at home before the course begins.

Sid I have posted this on another thread somewhere, however here it is again.

In the back of your Regs book (notes) make a quick index list for yourself of area's that you think you may need to refer to (i.e. tables, charts etc) in the Regs book during your exam - example:

Earth Loop Impedance Tables P46 - P49
Fire Fighters Switches P122
Residual Current Monitor (RCM) P124

and so on........

The Regs book is a working document so you can include notes and after all there is nothing that you could put in the notes that isn't already in the book. Lots of people don't use it to their advantage.

This way you can pick out and reference the areas quicker. Some people tab pages and highlight sections.

Hope this helps!

Warren

This is my first full attempt at the exam.. Failed!

Have to get minimum of 60% in each section right?

I've tabbed my book up to death!! im going to have ago at this once or twice a day up untill my actual exam day.
Hopefully get 100% in each section... (Yeah rightooo)

I didnt know they broke it up this way.. is it an equal amount of questions in each section does anyone know?
