Jeff,No problem... I would say it's more logic than mechanical with a lot of "sight math" like pushing on the short end of a teeter-totter is A. Harder or B. Easier.
There are a lot of questions relating to troubleshooting line segments... IE: they give you a phone line on poles and label the segments A-G. They say there is a fault on the line; where do you start testing between A and G? The answer is the middle. And so on and so forth getting a little bit more complicated in each answer. There are a number of these questions so they must put a lot of emphasis on segment troubleshooting - even though we won't climb poles or deal with outside wiring.
The hardest questions, and there are only a few of them - are about counting using a weird sort of binary system... I can't explain it easily but you'll see - you have a few easy questions about what pattern of jumper wires would produce the desired result and then you have to select the right answer - then there is a really hard one at the end and I sort of took an educated guess on that one.
I took the basic electronics test a while back and pased it... that was pretty tough but I bought a book on basic electronics and that helped me a lot... not that it is needed here.
Can you tell me about the Prem Tech job in Ft. Lauderdale? Is it ever gonna be CWA bargained for work like the Service Tech position? What is top pay and the hours like? I'm a laid off Verizon guy from Boston, previous IBEW member so I know the line of work. I passed the PT test and was wondering if AT&T Prem Tech is even worth the effort. Thanks.
