This 533-question test is probably the
most comprehensive test on the subject of Geometric Dimensioning and
Tolerancing (GD&T) ever available for purchase. Written to comply
with the 1994 and 2009 versions of the ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning and
Tolerancing Standards and other related standards (such as
Y14.43-Dimensioning and Tolerancing Principles for Gages and
Fixtures), this test provides the opportunity for companies to test
the proficiency of current or potential employees who have to apply,
interpret or analyze GD&T.
This test is also an excellent vehicle to prepare for the ASME GDTP
(Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Professional) Certification
The test sections include word problems,
interpretation & analysis problems, and applications problems for
ASME Y14.5-2009 and 1994, with a section specifically dedicated to
the ASME Y14.5-2009 New Rules—this section may be either included or
excluded for the test based on the applicant’s previous training.
This exam is administered with this Individual Testing Booklet for
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing [per the ASME Y14.5-2009 and
1994 Standards] by the employer at their job site.
