I have been studying for the CWI exam for the past few months and feel comfortable with all material except the code portion of the test. I was wondering what subjects i should tab in my D1.1 Code for quick reference during the test? Are there certain subjects covered that i should make sure i know? If anyone has any answers about what i should be looking at in the D1.1 code please offer some suggestions.

Thanks,
Alex

Lighten up!  There are not that many CWI's here in the forums, so give it some time.

I took the test 30 years ago, and I know it has changed somewhat. I used to teach preparation courses for the CWI exam as well.

My advice would be to concentrate heavily on prequalified joint weld procedures...knowing what applies, the limitations, and why.  I would then work on consumables and processes...know them backward and forward, including the limitations of each.  Pick up on little things, like when another code needs to be interjected (i.e., all of the welders on a project are qualified for welding to D1.1, and are doing fine with the structure, then they start to put steel decking on.  What qualifications do they need now?)

Know the qualification process for welders and what positions apply and why.  Seems basic, but can be tricky if you are doing T-K-Y connections or other "different" structures.

Know about inspections and the limitations of visual inspection and when to recommend nondestructive examination or testing.

Good luck.

I tabbed each section (1-8) and the index at the top of the page.  Then by each figure and table per section on the side of the page.

Basically, you need to be able to find anything in that code book, so get to know the index inside and out, and you should be fine.  You should get some practice exams and take them, that will give you the best idea of the type of questions you can expect on the real test.
