I'm set to take the EPA exam Monday and tonight I found a discrepancy between the study book (and the CD rom it came with) versus a practice exam question in the back of the study book. I'm wondering when I'm taking the test Monday if I'll have a choice between the two answers that don't match eachother (5 pounds versus 100 pounds). I only bought the book last week, so it's the newest one out (13th edition from March 2007).
On page 95 of the book, it says "According to the EPA, there is approximately 5 pounds of refrigerant vapor left in an average 350 ton chiller at 0 psig (14.7 psia) once all the liquid refrigerant has been removed."
However, on page 119 in the book, the practice exam (AND the question on the CD rom's exam) asks the following question:
"About ______ pounds of refrigerant vapor remains in an average 350 ton R-11 chiller at 0 psig pressure once all the R-11 liquid has been removed"
The answers to choose from are .5, 10, 100, and 1000. 5 pounds is not an option, PLUS the answer in the back of the book says the answer is 100. When I click on More Information on the CD Rom, it points me to the above section of the book, which says the answer is 5.
So, which is it - 5 or 100??? And this has me wondering what other information that I've studied and memorized are also incorrect, which might lead me to failing the test Monday. If the book doesn't agree with itself and possibly the test I'll take Monday have varying questions and answers, I'd be very diappointed to have wasted my time studying incorrectly. And I'd be extremely angry to have to pay to retake the exam if I fail, plus the extra time unlearning what I've already gone over and the time I'll have to take to relearn correctly.
