Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

It''s all in the code.. tab it! (so you don''t run out of time).

Know the tables in the gas code and the IMC. Also, definitions and type of appliances.

rjj is correct, approximately 8-10 Q''s out of fuel gas code.

Review Fuel gas and different system sizing methods AND pay attention to the plans. I don''t say tab it but rather know where to find the information without looking for a tab.

I find that adding to the Index is helpful. How many times have you searched and searched for something, then when you find it, you realize that that section/page is NOT referenced in the index under the heading you looked for
(and are most familiar with)? Now, it might be in the index under something else, but once you find one of these gems, go ahead and red-line your index so next time you don''t search for 15 minutes again (ask me how I know!).

I heavily rely on indexes every day, not just for testing purposes. I learned a long time ago that I couldn''t keep everything my memory banks, and my memory banks seem to be shrinking on a regular and ever increasing basis.

Take the index and table of contents out and staple them together (separately) so that you can have them all in front of you during the test. That way you''re not going to the front and back of the book constantly. I find this saves valuable time.

some of the testing locations won''t let you do that (so take the 3 ring binder and put them all in the front).. the tabs are important, especially if you''re not in that code all the time.

Lots of gas stuff, as I recall.

Whatever it was that Vmac said, I agree... :D

The Extendexes are very useful for finding those obscure items. (And is allowed for the test.) I don''t think they make an Extendex for the 2006 or 2009 IMC, but you can [URL=http://www.iccsafe.org/e/prodsearch.html?stateInfo=hciplbccTkCpocYb7505%7C3&words=extendex&go.x=28&go.y=9]CLICK HERE[/URL] for a link to the ICC Book Store. (I modified an old one by cross referencing some of the major changes.)

On finding something as VP pointed out.

I like to make notes in the blank pages front and back. With sections of bullet topics. I have found the use of colored pencils helpful also, sorta a color coding. They also don''t bleed through the page into the adjoining text.

Update: I passed my Comm. Mech. Inspector exam this morning, and I came right home and registered for the Plans Examiner for next Saturday.

TO: rjj - I never thought of using colored pencils. Have you ever had any problem with the proctor not allowing your reference with the colored pencil? Thanks for the tip.

No! I write with ink! Either back,blue or red first. I underline with the colored pencils. You can get various one in ink just to be safe. I have test in only two different places, so they kinda know me.
They most often spend most of the time looking at my calculator. It is older then the majority of those giving the test. I believe they think it is some kind of secert camera or something. :D
Glad you did well. You need to figure out what works best for you. The color just allows my eyes to move faster for certain details.

Not sure if it''s the same everywhere but where I''ve tested only ink on the page or hi-lighter is permitted. I did have some original examples of formula''s that I had written in pencil that had to be removed prior to me taking my test. What was written didn''t even really have anything to do with the test but rather just an example for my own use.
Anymore I very rarely do anything other than highlight something very little such as a FPN in the NEC that''s hard to find. POP
