Tips to Pass the Master Plumber Exam

Do you want some tips to help you pass the Master Plumber exam?

Without a doubt, passing the Master Plumber Licensure Exam requires tons of preparation, hard work, persistence, and determination. You will surely do your part. You will study long hours, read a lot of books, and answer hundreds of pages of reviewers. But do you want to hear useful tips, this time straight from those who already passed the Master Plumber boards?

Here’s our collection of the best insights and tips from Master Plumber passers and topnotchers themselves! Check out and adopt the following tips which we compiled from Richee Genesis, a blog by both Architecture and Master Plumber Board Exam passer who passed both exams on her first try!

Tips to pass Plumber board exam

Tip #1: Enroll in a review center.

“For those who don’t have field experiences in plumbing, I would suggest for you to enroll in a review center.”

Tip #2: Study the Fajardo Book.

“It is very, very helpful.”

Tip #3: Study and review your notes whenever you have time.

“You should never miss a chance to study or at least skim your notes every time you get a chance. When there are random questions popping on your head which you are not sure of the answer, make it sure to find out the answer that moment or write it down and search for it later. It happened to me many times that I was lucky that those random questions really appeared on the board exam!”

Tip #4: Learn the important parts of the Plumbing Code but no need to memorize the Drainage Fixture Unit or the Water Fixture Unit.

“They always give it in the questionnaire but you just need to familiarize yourself about them to at least have a sound idea of the pipe sizes equating to them.”

Tip #5: Join the Master Plumber Review group on Facebook.

“The questions from the previous exams are shared there and the members are really helpful. They also share downloadable reviewers.”

Tip #6: Pray.

“Remember that nothing is impossible through Him.”

PRC Room Assignments: Master Plumber Exam (Feb 2020)

If you see a “Now Available!” note beside the exam venue, it means the PRC already released the list for that province or city and you may now view the room assignment. If it is not yet available, the PRC is still finalizing the school and classroom details. We will update this post once the official Room Assignments are released.

Here are additional useful tips we suggest you follow before the exam.

1. You’ll notice that even in just one school, several buildings and classrooms will be used as testing centers. To make sure that you proceed to the correct location, write down and take note of the exact Building, Classroom, and Seat Number assigned to you.

2. Before the day of the board exam, find out the address of the school or venue where you’ll be taking the exam. Research the actual location using Google Maps or a guide map to determine how to get there.

3. Better yet, try visiting the venue a few days before the board exam! Doing so will help you discover the best transportation or routes to take. If you simulate going to the venue beforehand, you’ll also have an idea how long it will take you to reach the exam center from your place. This allows you to change your transportation plans, if needed.

4. On the day of the exam, don’t be late! According to the PRC, examinees who will be late will NOT BE ALLOWED to take the board exam. We suggest you arrive at the exam venue at least one (1) hour before the start of the exam. This gives you enough time to locate the building, classroom, and seat number assigned to you.

What happens if you did not show up or weren’t able to take the boards? The answer is in this article: I registered but I did not take the board exam.
