i have 3 ASE's. HVAC, Chassis Elctrical, and Suspension & Steering.
i don't really remember any of the questions but the suspension was was very easy compared to the others.i had taken the class the semester before i took the ase for it and all i did to prepare was look over a study guide of questions one of my teachers gave me.as long as you know about camber,caster,sai and stuff like that you'll be alright.now the electrical one, that one was tough, i barely made it on that one.
I have 16 ASE certs and have been a master tech for 25+ years, if you have a general idea of the systems buy the books or check with the local library and read them. With some common sense and eliminating some of the answers they give you to pick form its not that hard. Its a multiple guess test and if you can eliminate 2 of the answers you have a 50/50 shot. Relax and read a pretest manual for whatever you want to take.
I took 4 ase tests this past may. engine performance, engine repair, automatic transmission/transaxle and manual transmissions/transaxle. i only passed manual transmissions/transaxle and engine repair though. i failed engine performance by 1 question and pretty much bombed the automatic transmissions/transaxle test. ive got a lot of learning left though ive only been in the field for about 4 years now.
I have parts and engine performance. In the spring I am going for hvac and maybe advanced engine performance, If they will let me. I think you have to be master certified to take either advanced engine performance or exhaust systems.
