I have been doing some self-studying for the Technician exam. I do not hold the Installer certificates. Are there flashcards anywhere that BICSI has that will help with the written exam portion? Is there anything that will help me prepare for the hands-on portion? I'm just looking for anything that can help me prepare better for the exam. Thank you.

I know of the expense of the Installer course but the best way to be prepared for the hands on portion of the test is to take the installer course and/or have a lot of previous experience.
A certain amount of experience is required before taking the Technician course and exam anyway.

My problem with the new method of testing is that very few people are regularly performing all of the hands on tasks in their jobs. Who uses both the scribe and polish AND Unicam? Who uses both mechanical AND fusion splicing? My market is 66 and 110 blocks so I am rarely asked to punch down Krone and Bix blocks. Each fusion splicer is different. When I took my technician test the splicer I was most familiar with malfunctioned and I had to use a model I was unfamiliar with which was stressful considering you only get two tries to get it right or you fail the entire course. All of my classmates had some deficiency in the hands on test since their employer dictated the equipment they used. For future courses it would be great if Bicsi set time aside so students can review hands on tasks they rarely use.
