How to Pass Your Plumbing Exam the First Try
"At the test site, you will be seated and given a time limit to complete your plumbing exam. There will be a combination of multiple-choice and true-false plumbing questions. The exams for master plumbers can include questions based on pipe sizing and design. These are not normally required on journeyman exams. Some jurisdictions test on business and law matters, separate from the trade knowledge section. These questions typically deal with permitting, bonding, worker safety and other such issues. Due to the fact that such regulations vary from state to state, this practice test does not cover business and law matters. My plumbing practice tests focus on and prepare you for the trade knowledge section of the exams. In a few states, there is a practical section to the exam where you have to do drawings and other manual tasks. This practice exam is not geared toward preparation for any practical application, but your training in the field should prepare you for these type tests. Check with your plumber testing administrator to see if there is a practical section.
The time that you are given for the completion of your test can vary from one testing agency to another. It is likely to be a minimum of two hours and a maximum of four hours. The total number of questions is usually a minimum of 100. It is not unusual for an exam to contain 250-300 questions. The exams for master plumbers may not have any more questions than the journeyman test, but it will include some different types of questions."
