Success on the ASE P2 test requires a thorough knowledge of parts and systems.
Each year, Counterman
publishes our ASE P2 test prep guide.
Larry Carley provides an overview of the parts and systems reviewed on the test.
A counter professional who knows the parts categories backward and forward will be well-served for about 57 percent of the test. The remaining 43 percent covers topics such as management and phone skills, for example.
The goal of the ASE P2 test is to improve the professionalism of the counter pro and establish to others that you know what you’re talking about. It’s not an easy test by any stretch. Members of the aftermarket wholesale and retail parts industry have gathered to produce the P2 questions to tackle real-life situations that parts professionals will find themselves in.
