Our Commercial is hard here, too. All hand written and no calculators allowed. I don't know anyone who passed it the first time, but everyone retook it within a year.

Keep trying---its good here at the top....:)

The first thing I do after taking a test is write down every question on it I can remember. Then if you do re-test you have a good idea of what is covered on it. Read the questions twice before answering. There are many trick questions on plumbing exams. They want you to fail. Then they can get your re-test fee. IL plumbing exam has a 70% fail rate. Good Luck man!:thumbsup:

Do a search here and the internet. Best bet is to study, though.

I disagree. In Texas, the examiners seem very pro-pass. We are low on plumbers (I thought the whole country was). They should be wanting us to pass so more licensed plumbers are out there doing the work.

For some reason our tests are pro-fail. Like you, we are in a plumber shortage (let me rephrase that, quality plumber shortage). For the OP or anyone for that matter. If you have the choice between taking the Journeyman test or the contractor test, take the contractor test. Your going to have to study anyway and it is a lifetime license.
