If anybody has any sample questions, tips, or suggestions, please send them my way.

Thanks
I already posted some sample questions at the start of this thread.

As I have mentioned before your biggest challenge is going to be the clock. If I remember each question is averaged out to about 45 seconds per question. doesn't sound like much but most you should know right away. don't spend to much time on one question just move on, and go back to it, but make SURE that you mark that question on the answer key, otherwise you are FUBARed. That is my advice. Good luck

Jon

Default mistakes

You Go DAD!!!!!! I was taught that the only ones who don't make mistakes are the ones who don't do anything! ) dupree

As for taking tests. I prefer to go through and answer all the questions that the answers come quickly. Then go back and go through the test a second or third time till all are answered. Sometimes you will find hints in other questions. I'd still like to see one of those "Red Seal Tests" What's the big secret??

I am from Red Deer, AB. As for the Red Seal, I passed with 83%. I also passed the TQ! I was the last person out of the exam. Apparantly there is only a 50% pass rate. I did find it challenging. There was lots of math questions with respect to airflow.

So I am now a Journeyman!!!

I took the Canadian Red Seal July,09. Passed, I didn't feel there were many math questions on the test I took. However there is 4 tests that they use. Again make sure you can understand blueprints.

It looks like it depends on who you ask.
I'm starting to think there are different exams depending on where you live.
If you read back on this thread, there are some that say there are a lot of HVAC questions.
Not so here in Ontario.
Maybe each Province has it's own exam.
Either way, you're not off the hook. There will be a lot of math.
The good news is the exam gives you the math formulas you need, you just have to decide which one applies to the question you're working on.
Good luck and welcome to the site.
