I'm glad to have the opportunity to be a part of the forum. I don't have much to offer unfortunately as my knowledge is minimal, but perhaps that will change with time.
So I'm in need of acquiring my Washington State HVAC/Refrigeration Limited Energy Administator's license. My login in name comes from my experience over the last couple months in attempting to learn the information needed to pass the exam and acquire the license. I was very "green" (as in new) when it came to being prepared for the exam. I knew nothing, and don't know a whole lot now. So I need some advice as to how I can most efficiently prepare for this exam. I've purchased several books to help me learn, such as Mike Holt's "Basic Electrical Theory" & "Understanding Limited Energy Systems", Delmar's electrical theory book, materials from www.contractorexam.com specific to the test, etc. I've got all the code books, the FERMs fast finder, Ugly's book, and so on. I'm finding learning the material from books is frankly pretty obnoxious. So, given that I have no trade knowledge/experience, have very little understanding of the terms used for electrical equipment, have a basic understanding of electrical theory, little familiarity with the code books, what can I do to best learn what I need to know to pass this exam to get this license?
Thanks for the suggestions,
