I'm not sure If I might be better off posting this on /howto/ but I feel like I might have a better chance of finding an electrician here.

I'm interested in applying for an electrician's apprenticeship through my local IBEW/NJATC training center (VA, U.S.) the only problem is I'm having a little trouble finding out exactly what I'm supposed to know for the entrance exam. All of the sources I've examined seem to agree that reading comprehension based on passages and numerical pattern recognition will be present, but other than that several of the sources I've found disagree. Some of them say that the test involves math up to trig (sin, cos, tan, etc.) but this is in the minority. Most seem to suggest it's just basic algebra, i.e. functions and general math.
I found one alleged study guide that said it would specifically focus on math involving fractions and decimals, and then have a section based on "paper folding" (visualizing folded paper in one's mind and figuring out a pattern).

I'm hoping someone here might have gone through this recently, or at least recently enough that they can give me a first hand account of the subject I should expect. With the exception of the trig I've got a pretty good grasp on the other potential topics, I just want to make sure I'm studying the right materials and that I don't waste time studying things that won't end up being on the test.

Thanks for any help.

you should call the organization, these places are usually pretty people friendly in my experience.
