    At an interview for Best Buy today, I was told that they were interested in hiring me for car audio installation. However, I was asked if I would be willing to get MECP certified to get the position. I told them I would do whatever I needed to do to get the job.

    So my question is:

    What materials should I read and study for the exam? What exactly is covered on the test?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

    Don't worry about it. if you have a general knowledge of car audio, and not a moron you will be fine. It helps that they tend to give the answers to the test right before you take it. On a side note I seriously think BB has devalued the worth of being mecp certified

    Best Buy will give you a study guide that is pretty basic. You'll need to go over things like trouble shooting a system (identify, isolate and eliminate), shop practices and ohms law. PM me if you need help, I have a great study guide I can fax you. I'm at the best buy in oceanside, so we will be in the same district.

    :dunno: i agree with 04.

    We were never required to be MECP certified at Circuit City, and we walked all over the best buy in Champaign IL with knowledge. People knew to come to us, because we knew what we were doing in the install bay.

    I guess it all varries on the area that you live in though. In my area... BB = teh lose.
