Wednesday the 23rd., I start my CWI prep. course. I have dodged this for the past 9 years. 9 years ago I tested and received a CAWI and was vary discouraged, however I had very little training and was only 23 years old! It did not take me long to realize I was in over my head. Today, I have been in welding inspection for the pas 9 years and I am still very nervous!! VERY NERVOUS! The math scars the hell out of me. I work for a Nuclear based company and the only people that perform some of the CWI type questions that I have seen leading up to the class are Nuclear Engineers!! My question is what can I do extra to ensure that I will make the math portion? I know very little about algebra, the area of a circle, or a square bar for that mater. I am also told that part "B" is way off the charts as well. I don't have much time to order new books at this point so I am looking for publications on the net. Can anyone give me any tips?, if I could find a few sample questions that would be a big help. Some of my friends say "you will pass no prob." But others warn me of hidden curve ahead.
