Description

The primary aim of this book is to provide the necessary scientific principles for NVQ students specialising in motor vehicle engineering at levels 2 and 3. Unlike many other engineering science texts, it emphasises the topics most useful to vehicle engineers, and includes numerous real-life examples, with questions directly related to cars, motor cycles and commercial vehicles.

Key Features

Theory and questions all set in an automotive context Theory followed by worked examples and graded questions to aid learning Up-to-date with current technology

Readership

Students taking NVQ level 3 in motor vehicle engineering. Also those taking a GNVQ advanced course in engineering.
