is there anything on the web that has load calc study guides for me to practice with?
all i could find was formulas to buy.
or if anyone is interested in helping me that would would be nice.
I'm an Admin in WA state. I'm going to assume you are looking to start-up your own business, or be an Admin for someone's business if you are planning to take the Admins exam! Seeing that you presented yourself as an 01, then I'm going to expect more from you
. I would say the hardest part of the exam is exactly what you are looking to improve on: DLC's. The best way to achieve your goal is to study daily--quizzing yourself whenever possible. You may want to invest in a few books--so you can get a variety of calculation problems, and a varied view on how to calculate demand loads. Also, come here regularly, I have at least 5 or more I can throw at you
. Your test may also have transformer calculations [I have a few I can throw at you], so be ready for this--be ready for any and everything. Example of what may be on your test:
1. Single family DLC's
2. Multi Family DLC's
3. Motor Calculations
4. 1 Ph transformer calculations
5. 3 ph transformer calculations and
6. Electrical theory

My ending note:
Washington State Administrators are suppose to be electrical code leaders. They are the backbone of any Electrical Contracting business in WA State. They are supervisors
of electricians, and guardians of safety. To me, Administrators are WAC, are NEC, and any jurisdictional electrical code that exist. Administrators in the State of Washington are suppose to be ...........administrators
