I think I would rather pay the extra dollars and purchase from our local book store in the future.

This is a great text for the beginner learning about automotive powertrain's. The book is an easy read and flows quite naturally. I have read some other texts geared towards automotive students/hobbyists and have found that some are like reading a boeing repair manual. This one is not like that. I hope this helps!

Having used this book as a classroom manual (TWO BOOK SET) I have to say I have been quite pleased. This book is easy to read and follow and covers in detail manual transmissions, differentials, transfercases, driveshafts, CV shafts, and clutches. This book will set you up to learn more advanced systems.

Manual Trannys can be a major pain. This is a very comprehensive set. It has a classroom manual and a shop manual. The classroom manual explains the the basics. The way the transmission and it's parts & pieces are constructed and the way they operate. The shop manual is pretty detailed as well. It described repair and service procedures. This is one of those books that is great to hold on to even after you take the class. You can reference it when you are performing service and run into questions. By the time you get through these, you should have a good understanding of how everything works from the flywheel, all the way to the drive wheels.

The book is great and it came fast. I used this book in a class I took and wanted one for my personal use. The original price I paid for it back then was over a $100 bucks this was a bargain.

These book are great and informative but, unfortunately, I did not receive the classroom manual. It is not worth returning since I bought a used set and with shipping cost, it will not be worth the time and money. I will have to look elsewhere.

Update: I contacted the supplier and they were able to refund the amond so kudos to them and Amazon for their assistance. I did place an order for another set and will arrive soon.

as a text book this manual is used in conjunction with a shop manual. there is a lot of good info inside but the organization and layout can make it a little hard to slog through.
