Like its predecessor, this text presents principles and practices in a clear, concise format and a level of detail than far exceeds most similar texts. However, the Second Edition has been both updated and streamlined to reflect the latest developments, techniques and terminology in the field and to make learning even more accessible.From the Inside Flap:
New in this third edition are photo sequences plus many new tech tips, diagnostic stories, and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs). The text has been updated throughout and includes the use of clamp-on meters, tone generators for locating opens and shorts, capacitance-type battery testers, digital storage oscilloscopes, scan tools, OBD II, and I/M 240. Diagnostic Approach
This textbook was written to satisfy the need for problem diagnosis as its primary focus. Time and time again, the author has heard that diagnostic procedures and skill development are what are needed most in the automotive field. Diagnostic stories are included throughout to help illustrate how real problems are solved. Each new topic covers the parts involved plus the purpose, function, and operation as well as how to test and diagnose each system. ASE Content Approach
This comprehensive textbook covers the material necessary for Automobile Electrical/Electronic Systems (A6) and Engine Performance (A8) areas of certification as specified by ASE and NATEF ASE-type multiple-choice questions are included at the end of each chapter and there are two sample ASE-type tests in the appendix. Multimedia System Approach
A multimedia CD-ROM that accompanies and supplements the textbook is informative and also makes learning more fun for the student. The CD includes sound, animation, color photo sequences with voice, a waveform library, a glossary of automotive terms, sample ASE test questions, sample worksheets, and the ASE (NATEF) task list for Automotive Electrical/Electronic Systems and Engine Performance.
Twenty-eight photo sequences are included in the textbook to help students learn troubleshooting and service procedures. These photo sequences are also included on a video tape for instructors upon adoption of the textbook. Internet (World Wide Web) Approach
Included with the book is a coupon that entitles the owner to free access to an ASE test preparation web site for an extended time period. Now you can practice and take the ASE certification tests with confidence. Included at this web site are ASE-type questions for Automotive Electrical/Electronic Systems and Engine Performance. The questions are presented 10 at a time, then graded (marked). The correct answer is then given as you scroll back through the questions. This feature allows the students to study at their own pace. Worktext Approach
A worktext is also included with the book. The worksheets included in the worktext help instructors and students apply the material presented to everyday-type activities and typical service and testing procedures plus typical results and a listing of what could be defective if the test results are not within the acceptable range. These sheets help build diagnostic and testing skills.
