Code Look Up Two Minute Drills

These drills are written to be used with a timer. They are specifically designed to help you improve your code look up efficiency . They will be most effective if you  do the following four things:

1. Use the Targeting Method to find the answers
2. Dont worry about the answers until you have finished the timed portion of the drill. Concentrate on finding the next answer.
3. Once you reach the end of the timed portion, click on the Stop sign and you will start the drill over without the timer, which will give you a chance to review each question and answer.

Try to complete the test so that you average a total length equal to 3 minutes per question. 

NICET Tests are practice exams specifically designed for NICET certification practice

Also, don't take breaks, go to the restroom etc during this time if you can. When you are taking the real test, you can take breaks but your time continues to run so it is not recommended if you can help it.

Study Modules

​I have written these modules for your use to help you prepare for taking the journeyman's exam for Colorado. I recommend that you complete all of these modules before taking the journeyman exam regardless of where you are in your education. For those that have just completed a four year electrical education program, they will be a great refresher and for those that have not had school or it has been a long time since you were in school, then they will focus on the best ways to be successful on the test. They are also focused on the subject matter test takers have had the most difficulty with in the past.
