When you have completed an exam, go on to check your answers against the
answer sheet. When done, return to any question where your answer does not match
the answer sheet.
Try to figure out how to arrive at the answer sheet response. This activity
will help you to respond properly next time when confronted with a similar
One way to do this is to backtrack from the article number of the answer.
Observe the answer sheet response article number. Then go back to the question
looking for the key word or concept which will lead you to that specific article
Next go to that article number in the NEC and try to find the specific point
in the text which addresses the question. Check headings. When you have found
the appropriate text, read it through. Read all of it, not just the few words
associated with the question. This activity will help you improve your reading
skill, reading comprehension, search technique and memory.
If you are unable to figure out how the answer sheet response was selected,
go to the http://www.electricianeducation.com/audiosupport.htm
audio support file for that question. Click the question number to hear a short
audio file about that question.
You will need an audio player on your computer to access these files. Make
sure your speakers are turned on and the volume is turned up.
Some questions have very short audio support files. These are key word
questions without a difficult technique needed to answer beyond identification
of the key word. Just learn how to seek out the key word and these questions
will become easy for you.
If after listening to the audio file you still do not understand the answer
or how to get it, ask other electricians you know. They may be able to explain
the question and answer in a way that will clear it up for you.
Lastly if you disagree with an answer, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
so I can check the answer. I make mistakes all the time. Help me to improve
