ASE Technician Test Preparation H4: Brakes


with Ed2Go Instructor, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Calendar Mar 22, 2023

Are you looking for an easy, yet in-depth way to prepare for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) exams? Prepare for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) exams online with ease! ASE TECHNICIAN TEST PREPARATION (TTP) FOR TRANSIT BUS ensures that those preparing to take an ASE certification exam are equipped for success. This robust online product features all of the necessary components a user needs to successfully prepare for ASE certification. A detailed, three-tiered preparatory methodology (Practice, Standard, and Timed testing modes) is designed to ensure users increase confidence not only in answering task-list based questions correctly, but also in gaining test-taking assurance when performing in a simulated, timed exam environment. The Practice mode, the suggested starting preparatory test mode, provides detailed, question level remediation with each question response. This includes answer explanations, links to the relevant task list area(s) being assessed, digitized videos, animations, and full-color, engaging graphics designed to increase learning efficiency. The Standard mode removes the remediation element, and begins to transition the user to ensure comfort in a simulated online test taking environment. The Timed mode simulates most closely the actual ASE exam, where each preparation exam is timed and results achieved are viewed only at the completion of the entire set of questions for each test area.

This is a self-paced class.
