I ordered this book for my son, who is studying Auto Mechanics, and I hadn't heard any complaints. It looked good. It arrived on time. If you have a student in college who need text books for their classes, please make .com one of the first places you check. I've been able to order my student's books from here, some as low as .99. It's possible, you will be able to meet the needs of your children's syllabus, and your pocket book, at the same time.
Is very easy to follow all unites and it has clear objectives, so you can understand what is talking about even if you do not know anything about auto-mechanic. This book take you step to step without lost you.
This was the required text for the course I wanted to take. I don't think anyone has ever sat down and actually read it as if they were a student trying to learn the material. You begin reading, and then it refers you to a graphic, but the terminology in the graphic is totaly diferent from the terminology in the text. Very confusing.They introduce a new topic, and instead of a general overview, the narative gets you bogged down,right from the start into minute details, before you understand the overall concepts.This book weighs a "ton". It is filled with unnecessary b.s. There is a section on how to wash a car! HOW TO WASH A CAR! It's also filled with the usual b.s. about safety and hazardous materials, and how to treat customers and how to treat your boss etc. I don't know about you, but I want to know how a car works and how to fix it. They don't get to how a motor works until page 563 chapter 32.They should start the book with an overview of the seperate systems of a car and how they function and relate to one another.To me this book is clearly a publisher's dream. An expensive book that will be required purchase by desperate students without any say in the matter. If they pay me, I will show the publishers how to put together an engaging and informative text on auto technology.
