Best ASE Study Guides for Aspiring Technicians


[Music] hey how’s it going everybody Justin again as always thanks for watching my channel welcome back I apologize ahead of time for some of the background noise it’s laundry night got to make sure the chitlins have clean clothes you know how that goes to my parents out there anyways so today’s topic I wanted to talk about a little bit of something that’s been asked of me in the past as well as presently from one of our new texts that we got here at the shop is uh what are some of the things that I can do to prepare myself to possibly take the ASE tests and what are some of the books that I would recommend to anyone that’s getting ready to study for any one of those kind of tests you can see I have in front of me that Del Mar ASC test preparation guide books I got one here for engine performance another one for heating and air conditioning and another one for engine repair I also have one for brakes and steering and suspension and I think I have one for exhaust but I got those out and in storage right now so but these are the ones that I was mostly interested in trying to get better at so these are the ones that I I keep in the garage and do a little side reading here and there when I have time but as I said if you’re not actively involved and what it is that you want then you don’t really want it if you’re a mechanic or you’re an aspiring mechanic or an expiring technician and you just truly want to get better your craft and you don’t have a lot of information out there you know as far as like how to study I’ll put some links down in the description to some of the YouTube channels that I’ve gone to for strictly ASE preparation as well as links to the books that I purchase and use to study now I haven’t taken an ASE test and probably about three or four years I wanted to give myself a little bit more time a little bit more hands-on training start learning a lot more the vocabulary and names of different sensors and things like that and how they work and in what situations they would cause drivability issues and things of that nature so it’s not that I haven’t wanted to go take a test I’ve just been putting it off for a little bit to try to find hone my skills and in my spare time if if I have a little bit of spare time or I’m you know waiting around at the armory or I’ve got a weekend where I’m watching the kids I’ll just go through the book and I’ll read it a little bit and then I’ll go to the back of the book and I’ll just start taking their tests now in the back of these Delmar books they actually give you sheets of they give you a glossary but they also give you sheets of paper that you can use see that way you don’t have to worry about making the lines and notepads or whatever you can actually use these sheets in the back as your answer sheets so that’s kind of helpful and then in the back it’ll go through and it’ll give you answers to the questions that you were trying to to take on the tests the practice quiz and say you got something wrong it’ll not only tell you which one is correct but then why are the other ones incorrect or why that one was the best option for the specific questions that you were looking up and in the engine performance one it does cover a little bit of electrical that’s another book that I’m gonna have to get a little bit further down the road in the coming months because as I draw close to I think I’ve got like one more year left before my certification runs out I want to get the electrical book before then so that way I can use it together with the engine performance one to make myself you know more prepared when I go in to take the engine performance test and the heating and air conditioning test because there are some electrical questions as well and the heating and air conditioning book so electrical is going to be a huge part of a lot of the test guys they are going to give you at least you know ten questions that have to do with some kind of sensor or potentiometer or something of that nature or maybe a Hall effect sensor so there’s going to be all different types of sensors electrical they’re going to ask you questions what kind of voltage you can expect here and there just to kind of throw into the mix to see what your your total aptitude is for that particular area I believe they cover the Delmar covers you know all of the ASC sections that there are I know there’s there used to be a one through eight now I think it’s a one through a nine and then of course you have your l series tests that you can take they have to do with more more of the advanced side of engine performance and things like that so really really good study guide if you haven’t looked into them before I strongly recommend that you at least pick one book up give it a read for yourself and see how the testing goes for you other than that again I’ll try to go back to the channel that I utilized when I was studying for my brakes exam and the engine performance test that I took like I said about three or four years back and I’ll try to put that down in the description for you guys great Channel learned a lot it does get rather dry so you gotta take breaks you know it’s I think it’s like it sometimes it’s like a twenty to twenty minute to an hour-long study thing that they do on YouTube so I’ll try to see if I can’t find those video clips and put them down in the description for you guys that’s all I got if you’ve got other questions about this specific product again look down the description I’ll try to answer any questions that I possibly can but outside of just my own personal opinion and my own personal experience and utilizing their study guides for taking ASC exams that’s all I can offer you I’m sure others can comment down below if there’s some other resources that future texts or future ASC certified Tech’s can go to for extra study material that’s all I got for this video guys if you like this video give it a thumbs up if you dislike this video give it a thumbs down share if you want to share and by all means if you have more information about how an aspiring mechanic or technician can get ASE certified and you have some other information of where they can go to take these preparation tests please put it in the comments thank you very much we’ll see you guys next time
