The AMT series textbooks were created to set the pace for maintenance technician training and attain a level of quality that surpasses all other maintenance textbooks on the market. General covers the first section of the FAA’s required curriculum, incorporating an introduction to aviation along with basic lessons on mathematics, physics, and electricity. As the student progresses, specific aviation concerns are addressed, including regulations, mechanic privileges, forms, aircraft hardware and tools.

The curriculum meets 14 CFR Part 147 curriculum requirements, as well as prepares applicants for all subjects in the FAA Knowledge Exams. The textbooks are designed for at-home, classroom, or university-level training. They include colored charts, tables and illustrations throughout, in addition to an extensive glossary, index, and additional career information. A study guide is included within each textbook in the form of study question sections, with answer keys printed at the end of each chapter.
