    NETA Level 4 updated exam

    Did anyone take the new level 4 exam with 65 questions?
    The previous one had less questions, but I am wondering about the difficulty. Now with more questions and same amount of time to answer did they lower the difficulty?

    How difficult would you say the level 4 is overall? Is it still multiple choice? What would you say was the most difficult?

    It is basically a simplified version of the professional engineering exam except that it's closed book and you need to memorize a bunch of small details about IEEE standards.
    The hardest part for me was the standard related questions because I did not have time to study as much as I wanted. I would not suggest taking the test right after the holidays.
    The level 4 is the stupidest test I ever had to take in my whole career and I have a foreign bachelor's in electrical power, passed level 2 and 3 the same day. Not saying this to brag, it's just so you can have a feel of how the test is like.
    You may get lucky and get a set of questions that suits you and the applications you do at work. Unfortunately for me, only about 10% was related to what I do regularly at work.
    Now you don't have to skip a session to retake it so I will be taking it again in 3 months and I'll post a bunch of questions after that.

    About the questions:
    A lot of HV troubleshooting, communication (GOOSE), IEEE standars, HV equipment testing and calculations, commissioning and functional testing.
    Nothing about transmission protection, 1 VFD question, about 5 safety related from NFPA 70E, about 5 NEC questions, 3 LTC related, 3 CT related, 1 xfmr inrush graph related, 2 GOOSE related.

    Good luck

    Very good info, thanks for this. I can see there is a lot of little things to study up on. Good tip about not testing after the holidays! I hope you did well on the exam.
