Publisher Comments:

The newest edition of Today's Technician: Automotive Brake Systems continues to provide outstanding coverage of the theory and repair procedures related to automotive brakes. Students, entry-level technicians, and experienced technicians alike will benefit from the two-volume approach: a Classroom Manual to detail the theories and application of the total brake system, sub-system, and components, combined with a corresponding Shop Manual to provide real-world symptoms, diagnostics, and repair information about these systems. Automotive Brake Systems, 4E will help prepare readers for the ASE (A5) certification exam, as well, with ASE Challenge questions at the end of each chapter of the Shop Manual, and a Practice Exam in the Appendix. Major updates in this edition include coverage of the latest materials used in brake systems, current electronics, and an expanded but more general coverage of electric braking systems, so users don?t get bogged down with highly detailed, manufacturer-specific information. Together, the Classroom and Shop Manuals offer all the information needed to understand, diagnose, and repair most problems that could occur with today's brakes systems.

Synopsis:

Almost anything you ever wanted to know about brake systems is covered in this newly revised two-book set. The Classroom Manual details the theories and application of the total brake system as well as the various sub-systems and components. The corresponding Shop Manual matches the Classroom Manual chapter for chapter and provides real-world symptoms, diagnostics, and repair for the brake system, sub-systems, and components, including maintenance instructions and advice on whether repair or replacement should occur. Each chapter lists the ASE task associated with the inspection, test, and repair or replacement procedure being discussed to help prepare users for the ASE certification exam. In addition, all job sheets in the shop manual are directly correlated to the appropriate NATEF and ASE tasks. Together the Classroom and Shop Manuals offer the information needed to diagnose and repair most problems that could occur with today's brake systems.
