NICET LIBRARY II 
---------------- 

Last week I made some recommendations to first-time NICET test-takers
in the Fire Alarm Systems sub-field.  I suggested that you sign up for
the following elements: 

Level 1 General Work Elements 31001-31006 and 31011 
--------------------------------------------------- 
These suggestions are based upon not only the Level I requirement but
also the Level II, III, and IV requirements.  To satisfy the Level I
requirements, the applicant must pass 6 of 7 available General Work
Elements.  To satisfy the Level II requirements, the applicant must
pass element number 31011.  To satisfy the Level III & IV requirements
the applicant must pass all of the General Core Elements in each level. 

The reason for 7 elements versus the 6 required of Level I and Level
II is to improve your chances of satisfying the criteria.  If 6 are
required and you sign up for 7, you've allowed yourself the ability to
fail 1 of the 7 and still satisfy the Level I and Level II criteria. 
WARNING:  31011 isn't included in this wiggle-room tactic.  It is a
requirement of Level II. 

Level 1 Special Work Elements 32004-32006 
----------------------------------------- 
Again, these suggested choices are forward-looking, assuming that the
applicant plans to pursue higher levels of certification than Level I. 
The reason for these 3 elements is that they include specific
references and the reason for 3 versus the 2 required is to allow the
test-taker to fail 1 of the 3 while satisfying the criteria for Level
I and Level II. 

Level 2 General Work Elements 33001-33009 and 33016-33025 
--------------------------------------------------------- 
Assuming that the test-taker has their eye on Level III and IV, all of
the core elements are required to be passed hence the inclusion of
Elements 33001-33009.  A total of 18 General Work Elements are
required to be passed to achieve Level II so the remainder are chosen
from the General Non-Core Work Elements.  I picked 33016-33025 because
it makes a total of 19, allowing one to fail 1 element yet satisfying
the Level II requirement.  The reason why I picked these 10 specific
Elements is because they include specific references.

Level 2 Special Work Elements 34001 and 34005-34007 
--------------------------------------------------- 
The reason for these 4 elements is that they include specific
references and the reason for 4 versus the 3 required of Level II is
to allow the test-taker to fail 1 of the 4 while satisfying the
criteria for Level I and Level II. 

Adding all of these elements up comes to a total of 34, which is the
maximum number of elements permitted on a single exam.  The test-taker
will have to pass 30 of the 34 to satisfy the Level I & Level II
requirement.
