  8. @ Liane: the most honest answer is: I don't know! But I think it will just be similar to the previous exams. More elements than computations. In math, I think there will be many economy problems and elements that will turn up. This is how recent board exams turned out to be, so I guess this is the safest ASSUMPTION I could have.

  9. please complete other parts of Materials & Heat Treatment Elements...I haven't received Part 2 Questions/Answers...Part 3, I'm still waiting for the answers to rate myself..
