    Default Need Help with Penn & Foster exams

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi all,

    I am really in need of help here. I am in the Penn and Foster ACAD program and am currently trying to complete the exams. I cannot believe how horrible these exams are written. Has anybody else done any of these exams?

    I am currently on the HVAC portion trying to do plate 2 and 3 and cannot for the life of me interprete what that book is saying.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. If anybody has a picture as to what the end result should look like it would be awesome.

    Thank

    You just posted this less than 24 hours ago. There aren't many members around on the weekend, especially Superbowl weekend, so please wait a few days before bumping your own posts. Also, what you're asking for is very specific so don't be surprised if you don't get many replies.

    It might help if you scan and post the pages you're having trouble with, so we can see what you're trying to draw.

    I have also renamed your thread to something more specific to your question. "Need Help" isn't a real attention grabber.

    Yes, I know its the weekend and being Super Bowl Sunday even worse timing. Figured I would bump it just to keep it on top sorry if it bothered you.

    In case anybody knows or wants to try to help, here is the actual problem I am working from.

    That is indeed the project, but I already have completed plate 1. Did you by chance do plate's 2-3? I dont understand the meaning of true length nor do I understand the techniques the book is trying to teach/describe.

    Thanks so much for any/all help. Do you have an email address I can contact you at?

    I don't understand, you are asked to draw this square to round transition but you have had no instruction on how to do that? Somewhere in one of your drafting books will be a chapter on this exact thing. What drafting books are you using? Worst case go to the library and borrow a drafting book. Also a google search will help, in fact there is a site that will prepare a dxf file in about 2 seconds for you.

    You see, that is in fact my problem. I cannot understand what they are asking for. I thought I was to be drawing a rect to rect transition.

    Can you provide a link to the site you mention?

    Rob, I don't know if it is a good idea to give my email to you here. Go to artisansestimating.com and click on my email there. Meanwhile I will look into the plate for you. BTW it took me about three months to figure out the true curve idea. And, I probably have forgotten it too. LOL
