Features & benefits
  • NEW! The book’s new title reflects the updated content and topics specified for both Electrical/Electronic System (A6) and Engine Performance (A8) by ASE/NATEF.
  • Cover important automotive topics in a student-friendly format:
    • Present topics in short, easy-to-read chapters. Automotive Electrical and Engine Performance, 7th Edition makes teaching and learning easier by breaking the content into small, manageable segments.
    • Explain how to diagnose faults. In addition to explaining how a system works, most chapters include diagnostic procedures and the steps needed to troubleshoot faults.
    • Demonstrate how automotive systems are connected. The theory, construction, diagnosis, and service of a particular component or system are presented together, in one location. All of the information that students need to understand a topic is included when it is presented, so there is no need to search through the book for other references to the same topic.
    • Deliver the most up-to-date standards content.
      • NEW! All content in the book has been updated and correlated to the latest NATEF tasks and ASE areas.
  • Bring the subject to life and facilitate learning:
    • Engaging art programs support today’s visual learner:
      • Visualise concepts with full-colour photos and line drawings. Photos and line drawings complement the text. The photos show the actual parts involved so that the student can view a good or defective part. The line drawings allow the reader to see what is inside a component and how it works.
      • Break a task down using step-by-step photos. Step-by-step photo sequences detail the steps involved in performing a specific task or service procedure.
      • NEW! Many new full-colour line drawings and photos have been added to help bring the subject to life.
    • Make reading, studying, and content mastery easier. Every chapter includes bulleted and numbered lists to summarize concepts or the steps in a procedure, while the design for main and sub-headings makes it easier to grasp the scope of the chapter. Finally, each chapter ends with a Summary, Review Questions, and a Quiz.
    • Help students prepare for their professional career
      • Prepare for the ASE Certification exam. The textbook and workbook page numbers are listed in the NATEF correlation guides to make learning and teaching easier.
