Features and Benefits
Designed to make it easier for instructors to teach the course and for students to learn and apply the content.
Content is broken down into 40 short chapters, making it easier for instructors to assign brief sections of the text or an entire short chapter for reading.
Each concise chapter offers review questions and a quiz focused on a specific system or task, making it easier for students study and learn the material.
Bulleted lists and numbered steps throughout the text break the material down for easy reading.
The text's teaching and learning package includes an Instructor's Manual, PowerPoint slides, computerized test bank, and MyAutomotiveLab.
Gives students real-world insight on how the material is applied in the automotive service industry.
- Tech Tips and Frequently Asked Questions throughout the text provide real world examples of how concepts are applied on the job.
- Hundreds of the author’s color photos are used to show real automotive components, including examples of defective parts. Seeing the actual part instead of a line drawing helps students better understand the system and the components involved.
- Written by an experienced automotive instructor–not a technical writer–the text provides sound explanations of how systems work, explained from the point-of-view of a technician and automotive instructor rather than from an engineer or salesperson.
Provides the essential skills students need for entry-level employment–not only explaining how a system works, but also how to check for proper operation and identify faults that can be detected visually.
