Any help is greatly appriciated. Thanks alot
just wrote airframe expect 25 helicopter questions.

I JUST WROTE THE AIRFRAME EXAM. FAILED BY 1 QUESTION. I WAS NOT EXPECTING 20-25 HELICOPTER QUESTIONS. THATS WHERE I WENT WRONG. STUDY HELICOPTERS ALOT. IF YOU GET ALL THE QUESTIONS RIGHT THATS 30% OF THE EXAM. APART FROM THAT EMAIL ME. I REMEMBER ALOT OF THE TOPICS. IM WRITING STANDARD PRACTICES IN 2 WEEKS. ANYBODY HAVE ANY ADVICE. WHAT SHOULD I FOCUS ON?

Did Standard last month.... Electicity- couple questions on ohms law. Know hardware ie. rivets, AN stuff like bolt length and material color and ident ( D= alum), corrosion types and treatment,NDT,Fire types, Fuel types and color code, Ridged tube/flex hose (skydrol) and Drawings. Some weight and balance. Get the ASA prepware and cross ref with Jeppsen. really helps. Passed no prob, also passed airframe last week no prob. Get the Jeppesen Helicopter Maintenance with workbook, that was more than enough to get through.

Hi everyone. I'm a long time observer, first time contributor. I completed the ICS program a little over 4 years ago and I'm currently on the home stretch of my apprenticeship.

I was wondering whether anyone lately has had to do the technical exams and perhaps can give incite on what is expected? Is the airframe exam still helicopter heavy?

I have the jeppesen textbooks along with the asa test guides for 2011 as well as "Aircraft Powerplants" by Kroes and Wild. Is this sufficient study material or should I invest in some more reference material?

Thanks

Thanks for the info,

Wow you have a great memory btw :) , definitely a big help.I just received my Jeppeson airframe, general and powerplant plant test guides and study guide and was wondering if i need the jeppesen texts and ASA texts to go along with them.

thanks appame

These are really good as well. Downloadable PDF and free on the FAA website. Looking at the Technician books.

I have just accomplished my ICS course through my company and I'm looking into writing my technical exams in the coming months. I know a lot of people comment on using the JEPPESEN A&P test/STUDY guide or the ASA study guide. My question is is there a difference between the two sets of information? I don't want to waste money on the sets of books if one is useless writing the AME Technical Exams.
