Dear Brothers

I have just taken the exam this morning. 3 hours long exam, I took me a litte more than 2 hours to finish ticking the objective exam. Lots of cross reference on the CFR. Searching the keywords on the CFRs' PDF would help alots. Some questions were from the "Pipeline Construction" tet book, which I should have bought. 3~4 queations were from ASME B31.4.

My test question uncertainties were around 11~13 quaetions.

If I did not make it on this exam, I would buy the text book + do my reading on the ASME B31.4 in details.

Good luck brothers.

Charlie

I have posted in the other post; here again is the post exam analysis:

I have done 3 major pipeline project, 750KM gas line (2 years with front end, Radiography, joints shrink sleeve, caliber pigging) , 230 KM multi-product pipeline (mostly at tank terminal for 18 months) and 100km 6 inches gas line(6 months and posted elsewhere), so the pipeline construction processes and inspection activities I am well versed. The API 1169 study notes which I prepared had been inserted with many photos reflecting the gained experiences.

Here are the exam catches:

These 2 important books I have not read:
Pipeline Construction by Max Hosmanek, The University of Texas Austin
Entire document is subject to testing
(There was no free download, I should have bought and read- worth buying!)

CGA (Common Ground Alliance) Best Practices
Entire document is subject to testing (few questions (5?6?) from this documents. I miss reading this before the exam)


Following ASME codes should have read, but I did not read for the exam purposes, because I thought I know them well as I worked with them for years.
(this is a mistake, no body could remember the code details. The codes should be read for exam!)

(4~5 Questions from this code, specifically mentioned B31.4)

ASME B31.4, Pipeline Transportation Systems for Liquids and Slurries
ATTN: Test questions will be based on the following portions of the document only:

Chapter I, Scope and Definitions
Chapter II, Design
Chapter III, Materials
Chapter V, Construction, Welding, and Assembly
Chapter VI, Inspection and Testing

ASME B31.8, Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems
ATTN: Test questions will be based on the following portions of the document only:

General Provisions and Definitions
Chapter I, Materials and Equipment
Chapter II, Welding
Chapter III, Piping System Components and Fabrication Details
Chapter IV, Design, Installation and Testing

CFR Codes matters
The codes were provided during exam with search function. The computer exam with keyboard. Little patience all question could be answer with search strings.


Hope the above are useful to those taking the exam
