Taking the Fear out of ASE Testing

Taking the Fear out of ASE Testing

Useful tips and online resources from ASE help reduce test-taking anxiety. Register by June 30.

Because many people experience test-taking anxiety, the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has put together useful tips and online resources to help take the fear out of testing. An infographic can be found in the Test Taking & Prep section of the ASE.com website and is ideal for posting in shops or providing to service professionals. The infographic features common questions and solutions like those below to help individuals overcome their concerns and achieve the goal of ASE certification.

What if I’m not a good test taker?

ASE tests focus on knowledge of the skills required to do a certain task, not on theory. This makes ASE tests relevant to what’s done on the job, not in a laboratory. ASE’s test taking tips provide an interactive look at the different types of ASE questions: www.ase.com/testingtips.

Will I have enough time to complete the test?

ASE lists the number of questions and allowed times for each test in its study guides. To learn how to use the computer-testing interface and learn time-saving tips, review the YouTube video entitled “A Look at the ASE Testing Platform” on the ASE Campus YouTube channel.


What if I’m not sure about computer-based testing?

Test takers don’t have to be a computer expert to take an ASE Computer-Based Test (CBT). In fact, they don’t even need to know how to use a PC’s operating system. To see how easy it is to take an ASE test, view the ASE Testing Platform webinar on the ASE Campus YouTube channel.

What if English is my second language?

If English is your second language, individuals may bring a standard, published English-to-foreign language dictionary to use during testing. If you speak Spanish, every ASE test features a button on the testing interface that launches an English-Spanish glossary of technical terms.


What If I’m just not prepared?

The best place to start is with the free ASE study guides at: www.ase.com/studyguides. The guides contain a detailed “roadmap” for each test, along with sample questions and information on training resources. Also be sure to check out the official ASE practice test: www.ase.com/practice.
