Hey SW,

Any Luck with some info. on this assessment?

I know you aren't obligated to help, but I've been called to do the same one.

I just got laid off a moth ago, have a kid on the way with no full time job or benefits.

I need every ounce of help possible.

The MAM 11 assessment had changed over the years....It used to be both mechanical and electronics or electromechanical. In other words it was millwright / electronics technician. I heard a rumor that now the assessment is only electronics.

I could tell you the books to study for the MAM 10 tests witch is purely Millwright.

The Books you need to study from for MAM 10 are

TRAC Machining/Millwright Occupational Core

Trades Common core

Millwright Manual

Perhaps studying use the Millwright Manual Studying Guide from Queen's Printer

The sets of booklets are available through Queen's Printer are

It has been rumored that the MAM 11 assessment test is purely electronics. I could tell you some text books that I used in college back in 1998 when I graduated from a Digital electronics engineering technician program.

Experiencing Electricity and Electronics

Published by
Sounders College Publishing.

Experiencing Electricity and Electronics is a very good passive circuit and first year electronics text book. Very Good text book in studying for the MAM 11

You should also purchase a text book or lab book regarding soldering and de soldering ......electronics assembly book

This edition is a newer than the one I studying in college but it still makes use of the motorola 68HC11 MPU,

This is a very good digital electronics course text book....It will definitely help you pass the MAM 11.

Electronics Principles

GLENCOE, McGraw-Hill

Electronics Principles Text book is a very good Linear Electronics technician text book...It deals with transistors diodes, JFET, MOSFET, OP Amps, zener diodes etcs, transformers. Again very useful for the MAM 11

These 2 HC11 books may not be required for the MAM 11 but is included in the college program.

Telecommunications Third edition

Telecommunications is a good digital telecom text book

If you are into telecom books...

Principles of Electronics Communication systems
by Louis E. Frenzel
published by

This text book is somewhat outdated regarding televisions...but the radio and fiberoptics and filters is a good read....but this wasn't in the program of study for electronics digital technician....but it is a really good telecom book.

For computer science course we used

An Introduction to programming using C++
written by
Kenneth C. Mansfield Jr. and James L. Antonakes
this was published by
Prentice Hall
This was part of the curriculum for digital electronics technician

The math text book for the electronics technician program was

Basic Technical Mathematics with Calculus.

Basic Technuical Mathmatics with calculus is a good Math book...but you do not need it in order to study for the MAM 11 assesment.

The Physics book for the college technician program is

Another book that could be useful for studying is

Another good source of study material you could use is the US Army Auto Mechanics CD ROM and the Navy Electronics Technician CD ROM. If you search Ebay to order them they should only cost less then 10 dollars.

The US Army Auto Mechanics CD ROM is good for the tricky questions including specific gravity of the Fully Charged lead acid battery and the Fully Discharged lead acid battery.

You can also purchase other mechanical fields of study military CD ROMs including Hydraulics, Diesel Mechanics, Air Craft mechanics, welding, lathe, milling machine, shapers, machinist, HVAC technician, layout, electrician, masonry, construction, auto mechanics etc

A lot of the mechanical trades overlap....though you might not need these CD ROMs for studying for the MAM 11 assessment they are good for a mechanical technician library.

Another CD ROM book you can purchase is the FAA Powerplant and Aircraft Mechanics text books....You can find these free on the internet on the FAA website.

Of course you can find most of these pdf files on the internet but you have to worry about viruses if you search for them.

The College Online Bookstores has many of the books I mentioned for the MAM 10 / MAM 11 Assessment Test....With regards to Millwright training.

Two Books I haven't Mentioned so Far are:

Industrial Hydraulics Manual Eaton ISBN 978-0-9788022-0-2Copyright 10 Publisher Eaton Binding Hardback

Machinery's Handbook, 30/E Oberg ISBN 978-0-8311-3091-6 Copyright 16 Publisher Ind Press Edition 30 Binding Hardback
