How to Prepare for an Electrical Exam

Passing your electrical exam is an important step in your career and it can be life changing.

Being prepared for the exam means more than just knowing electrical concepts, the Code, and calculations. Many good and knowledgeable electricians have not passed their exams because they did not know the proper way to get ready for an exam, or how to take a test.

Preparing for your exam is a process, and the following suggestions are designed to help you pass your exam the first time. In order to pass an exam, a few things need to happen. You need to:

  • Prepare yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically
  • Prepare for the exam by knowing what you’ll be tested on
  • Create a proper study plan so that you’re focusing your time on the most important areas you need to study
  • Understand how to take an exam, how to approach questions, and how to manage your time during the test
  • Do everything you can to prepare, so that on exam day you have confidence that you’ll pass

Do you have the support you need?

Your commitment to pass your exam will affect other people in your life, especially your family, and the effects can be significant and even stressful. Have the conversations upfront with your wife, husband, kids, and significant others. Explain that this means spending less time together, studying long hours, or perhaps a temporary strain on the family budget. Remember that this situation is temporary. Take some time to watch this video with the people that will share this journey with you, and you’ll see for yourself that all things are possible!
