    HVAC Pass rate

    I failed April 2017 36/80 (46% scaled score). Studied MERM and Lindberg mechanical sample problems and 6 minute solutions (waste of time). I failed October 2017 48/80 (62% scaled score). Focused on MERM sections that I did bad on in October 2017 and took Testmasters course. Passed April 2018 (85% scaled score). Retook Testmasters course, studied NCEES practice exam (took it 3 times until I mastered it), studied EngProGuides Mechanical HVAC/R Study Guide, EngProGuides Mechanical HVAC/R practice exam (took it 3 times until I mastered it), and EngProGuides Mechanical HVAC/R references practice exam. The EngProGuides material is what made the biggest difference for me. It was my best reference during the exam and I did not use the MERM at all. Tips: Limit water consumption during the exam to avoid wasting time in bathroom breaks The 4 ASHRAE books are a must Bring a wrist watch to keep track of time At the beginning of the exam, rank problems by difficulty 1-3, with 1 being easy and 3 being hard. Do 1's immediately, then 2's, then 3's.
