b31.3 preparing for open book examination

by daniel

What is the best way to prepare for b31.3 open book test?


This is just my opinion....

Get a copy of b31.3 and buy some sticky tabs.

separate the standard by chapters so you can find a chapter very quickly.

read the standard and get familiar with footnotes.

open book code tests are usually time limited so being able to tab to a chapter is very helpful.

I have not taken the B31.3 open book test but have taken a AWS CWI exam with open book AWS D1.1 code test... and tabbing was a life saver on time.

best of luck,

Preparation for B31.3 Code test

Jody, I appreciate your taking time to respond. I have the book and just got some tabs.

I have talked to CWB and they suggest knowing your way around the book, and to hilite.

I think it would be hard to really get to know much of this material due to the way it is written, and difficult to study, but I will try.

It would be interesting and helpful to find some practice exams on this book.

I am a steamfitter so that helps somewhat.
