DME testing

I am sending in my application to become a DME. If I get accepted, I then have to take a knowledge test. Does anyone know what this covers and if there is a study guide for this? It's been a while since I was in school and I would like to refresh on some things. Thanks!

It used to be the General test, not sure what it is now.

Chapter 2. Selection and Appointment

The DME written test is very similar to the General written exam, however there a many questions on this exam you will just have to know from experience. The good part is you only have to take this written test once. When I took the exam I quickly answered all the general questions I knew for sure then went back and read the other questions several times to make sure I understood what the question was asking, this is important to pick the correct answer.

DMEs are expected to have a well round aviation knowledge, but having the General knowledge test down will certainly help you pass this test.
