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.
