I was in the city Specials I&R tester, M.E.T (Material Equip. Installer) for all the Manhattan C.Os or where ever needed assistance with major jobs. It was a sweet gig. I'm going to see if I can find some sort of study guide just to keep the brain fresh.:cool:

Recived my letter yesterday. My test date is 6/19 at 10am.

 

I bought the Jack Rudman study guide, does anyone know if the questions are pretty much the same? Asking because there are a ton of questions on eletrical circuits and not to many dealing with phone lines.

Guys, took the test this morning! 75% hands on, 25% oral theory. 66 Block punch down (10 pairs). They will assign you what pairs they want cut down. Ran Dt from dmarc to RJ11. Tel set works! Troubleshooting 2 lines with no DT, bridge clips off at dmarc. Did some resistance measurements and calculations, RJ45 crimping 568A &B and T1 loop back plug. The oral theory, someone will read some questions and you have to pick out the correct symbol from the chart provided. You must know ohms law and circuit symbols and also know the different types of fiber cable, Coaxial, serial cable, etc. Now who knows if the questions will change when you get there? I had one question from the book. It was measuring resistance and distance (feet). I hope this helps, good luck guys!

What kind of meter were you using? How many types of fiber cable were you asked about?

Used the 'Fluke'. Was asked about 1 type of fiber, but there were muti and singlemode on the table with different type of connectors. Every tool you may need to use is there for you.

I see your name is XVZ, where did you work out of?
