Abstract : Three experiments were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the generalized maintenance trainer simulator (GMTS) as a supplementary device for laboratory troubleshooting practice. Students using the GMTS scored as well on final tests of performance on actual equipment as did students who had trained on actual equipment. It was concluded that GMTS provides effective laboratory troubleshooting practice. (Author)
