    Congratulations steveray!
    Arguing with an inspector is like wrestling with a pig in mud, pretty soon you realize that the pig is enjoying it!

    When I posted about test taking, one fourm contributer made a good suggestion, take the index from the back out of the book ,right at the start of the test. It makes flipping much eaiser.

    If you have absolutely no idea what to guess, guess the same letter for all of them, I would suggest "B".

    That is great, good job! Thanks for the heads up of what to expect!!

    I passed mine today. I found alot of useful information in this thread...thank you all.

    Now on to the M2, P2 and E2. I took a job that requires I have all 4 commercial in 30 days. Ugh! Again, your insight has given me a good sense of how to prepare.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to THE Forum!!

    I haven't taken any 2012 exams, but I imagine the format is essentially the same.

    Some great tips above, but I'll add my $0.02 anyway;

    1- Buy the fast tabs
    2- Know thy index well.
    3- Answer the ones you know, flag the ones your unsure of. Come back to the flagged answers after going through the whole test.
    If the head goes through, the rest can too. - Yankee

    Thanks much for the information, I am taking it on Sept. 16th. Do you have any info on the prints that they give you? I assume they are on structure?
