Default mechanical aptitude test

shouldn't take more than 10 minutes or so.

80% 'passes' and 85% is average.

I got a 96%, missed 6 & 11, and I'm blaming that on their shitty drawings (no measurements given in 6 and unclear in 11)

You know, that test minus the electrical diagram questions was exactly like the ASVAB I took in high school. So you're just a product of your environment.

If you got everything else right, I'd say you have more than enough aptitude than it takes to splice a handful of wires. You'll be fine.

90%, but they aren't too clear.

the fans will rotate in same or opposite? well do they mean same sitting side by side or same facing each other?

oops on question 44, I thought it was air in the pipe, not water.

100%, but a few answers were based on testing skills, not true knowledge. and that balance beam one is just plain WRONG, the B crate would need to weight 60lbs, and that wasnt a option.
