Does the state provide study materials or textbooks for my use?

Michigan does not provide or recommend any single textbook or published materials for your review when preparing for the mechanics tests. However, it is recommended that individuals who prefer home study acquire textbooks similar to those found in technical skill centers, and two- or four- year colleges. Typically, these types of textbooks are not found at your local library but are available through educational book stores and various online automotive publishers.

It is suggested that you prepare by reviewing the Mechanic Study Guides. These study guides provide a list of the categories and subcategories that will be on each test. Each category is given a percentage indicating how many of the test questions will be drawn from that category. This allows you to plan your study time and concentrate on those areas that are given the most emphasis on the test.
