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?

Ok. So same difficulty, they just added 16 more questions
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 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.
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.
