ase practice test  

Read the test questions on the ASE practice test and try to answer each question using the best of your knowledge. If you are not sure about the answer, try using the process of elimination to find the best suited answer.










Technician A and Tech B questions are common to find throughout an ASE test. This style of questioning offers 2 technicians and their knowledge about the topic. One technician may be right, while the other is wrong, or they may both be right or wrong at the same time.









Also commonly used are questions that ask for the most likely and least likely answer. Try to keep it simple when you're  eliminating the wrong answers from the given choices and only concentrate on the least likely or most likely answer. These types of questions can be found on the actual exam and the ASE practice test.

















You may need to know specific measurements for a portion of the ASE test. Though certain measurements may be standard knowledge for techs within the field of discussion, it can be a coin toss for others. Try to eliminate the wrong answers to the best of your ability if unsure about the answer.













Watch out for ASE test questions that use the word except. Use the process of elimination to remove the least likely answers from the list. This should help find the correct test answers much faster.
