meaning of a work or technical term. The technical literacy list available as a
workbook will go a long way to improving your vocabulary.

Here's a sample of the problem you will encounter on an exam. Answer this
question to the best of your ability without reference:
Say you have two four square boxes connected with a
1/2 inch electrical metallic tubing run. And in that pipe there is one black
wire and one white wire. What is the technical term which identified the white
wire? Click on your final answer.
See what I mean about technical literacy? It can get you in a lot of trouble
if you don't have it.
