Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an overpriced textbook poorly put together with mediocre 2 colors and darkish invisible black and white pictures. I would look for other easier and much more fun to read full color textbook, and at cheaper price.

I bought this book for my engine overhaul class we would read a chapter and apply what we learned from the book to the engines in the lab. This book combined with a great teacher will teach you a lot about engines.

This book is a great resource (during and after class!). And to get it at a great price was helpful! Text books are expensive, so this was a great deal.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the required Textbook for my Fall 2013 class: Basic Engine Repair. At the college bookstore, it is $185.
Lately a student posted on Craigslist 6th edition $60. Too late, I already bought my book.
The books from Del Mar Learning ("Today's Technician" series) are poorly written, poorly edited, and the full-color pictures show you nothing. This book seems to be better written. I started reading it early because it is about 700 pages long. That works out to about 41 pages reading per week. The amount of learning in a College (vocational) (technical) class is many times based on the amount of work that the student puts into the class. That is, time spent into the lab time, listening closely during lecture and asking questions, and reading the book and doing the homework.
I am 61 years old and retired. (I already have a B.S. from the University of California in Business). When I was in Junior College the first time, tuition was $5 a semester. This one class (4 units) is $190. In the old days, if you spent $50 for books (and you were carrying a full load, 15 -17 units), you were taking all hard classes. One of my classmates spent $1,000 on books for one semester. This is not a good trend; our country needs to take a hard look at the costs of education, cap them or better, reduce them, or we will become a country of some rich and educated, but mostly poor and uneducated.
Using a smart phone does not count as being educated.
