I bought this book thinking it came with a cd/access code full of usefull information and videos. Unfortunatly you can only use the disk or access code if you are in a class that gives you a class code. Which means all those useful test, videos, useful information, ect you cant use. The book itself is very good and informative. It is very clear and has great pictures.

I received this textbook and was shocked at the weight of the package. I thought it must be a pack deal of a book (a manual for lab and a manual textbook) but was very wrong. This book is near four inches thick and weighs 10lbs. The weight is burdensome. The content however makes up for it. Looking through the contents you have everything included that you would need for MULTIPLE automotive courses. Where was this textbook 7 years ago when I began college???? It covers braking systems, electrical systems, suspension, steering, (touches on) hybrid vehicles, and more! This takes up for the 4 books I had to use for several courses. For that reason it's worth it's weight! Plus had it been around I would have saved some money; cheaper to buy this than the several other textbooks required at the time.

Very disappointed. This book was sold as new, but as I have gotten deeper into it, I have found writing on several of the pages. This book has 1650 pages, so a one month return/replacement policy really isn't enough time to find out that this is a used book. If I had wanted a used book, I could have gotten one cheaper. $130 - New - $80 - Used. Buyer beware!

In the school's book store it costs more than $200 with tax and everything. But I bought it for $135 here at Amazon. Great deal! But since it says "new" I was expecting it to come wrapped and include the code it's suppose to come with when it's really brand new. When I opened the box it wasn't wrapped and it didn't have the code. Although I didn't need the code I at least expected it to come wrapped. The book had dents and a little scratch. I guess it was cuz of the shipping process.

Overall this is a good book. It has small chapters of almost everything. Some chapters are pretty long but obviously for a good reason. It's REALLY HEAVY! When I say REALLY heavy I mean REALLY HEAVY! This book gave me back aches every time I took it to school.

4 stars for good quality but didn't make it to 5 cuz it wasn't wrapped!

I bought this book on my kindle fire it is very informative the only thing I didn't like and kind of bothered me was that the kindle fire version doesn't come with the access code that is required in the "my automotive lab" website only the hardcover version comes with it I think that access code should come with both the hardcover and kindle fire version

For students without experience this book is great. There may be some negative reviews regarding this text however I have never been under the hood of a car, working professionally, before I started an apprenticeship program and this book has greatly assisted in my studies. If you want to learn more about vehicles as a DIYer and have the patience and discipline to read the book and not just specific chapters then you will ultimately have a far better understanding of vehicle repair. This text does not encompass everything about vehicle repair but it does a significantly exceptional job regarding informing students about automotive systems. I also can say I have used the text to prepare myself for ASE exams with successful results. As ONE text in an education program this is a great foundation.
