Well, I tried the new exam. Much better.
I still think some of the questions have to many ridiculous answers with only one seemingly right answer.
i.e. Water pressure tanks have:
Perhaps at least two plausible answers per question.
In addition, the chance to review each question and edit your answer is really nice.
Of course, I was to egotistical to use it. Then, in reviewing couple of questions I print screened to look at in more depth, realized I had checked the wrong answer on one of them. Duh!
Do we really want dialectric in the mechanical mercury thermostat question or was it intended to be dielectric?
Do we really want width in the stair tread "width vs run so that it noses" question, or was it intended to be "Depth".
The pie charts and study suggestions are helpful for those who miss a bunch of questions, but the percentage calculations really don't mean much if you only miss a few questions. Perhaps adding the actual number of questions in each area?
Overall, I think it is a much improved testing source since the last time I took it months & months ago.
I saw that 10 other people were taking the test at the same time I was.
How does the fact of those who start the test and stop in the middle (they realize it must be a dumb test because they don't know the answers) effect the overall Pass/Fail statistics.
