I'm an 01 Journeyman due for my third round of Load Calc. portion testing for the WA Admin. I believe I have one more month to make the attempt. I just made the commitment to follow through today and am very pleased to have stumbled upon this site.
Being almost 11 months since I made the second attempt-60%, 60% first attempt-my detailed recollection of the stumble causing questions is cloudy. Excuse me if I present ill-prepared. I wanted to start dialogue ASAP.
On both failed tests, I skipped the involved industrial and large commercial calculations, leaving me with two questions per test that involved SINGLE SERVICE DUPLEXES. To put it vaguely, since I have no choice at the moment, both questions were almost identical, with only slight load differences. What made them ALL similar was the fact they all had seperate A/C and heating units. I had tryed many variations and percentages in working the four units into the single service equation. I haven't put all the relevant code puzzle peices together yet.
Any leads will be helpful, I have yet to find a similar example.
