Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Camionaje: Manual del Camionero de Tractor-Remolques Libro de Ejercicios has been developed to address the increasing demand throughout the US for tractor-trailer materials in Spanish. The Spanish version of the popular Tractor-Trailer Handbook/Workbook has been successful in teaching Latin-American students throughout the US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and South America. Now students can learn the same complex concepts from the English version in their own familiar language before tackling the actual reading required to pass CDL tests or drive commercial vehicles in the US. Written at a 3rd -6th grade reading level for ease of understanding, the Spanish translation addresses not only the body of knowledge a driver needs to know, but it also teaches the procedures that, with practice, will enable the student to become a skilled driver. This book stresses the importance of developing the traits and behaviors that characterize true professionals, as tractor-trailer drivers are placed in the unique position of being entrusted with expensive equipment and cargo, as well as representing the industry to the public at large. Content also includes good health and safety practices that drivers should follow for success on the job. Trainer Supplements available for this title include: Instructor's Manual Transparency Overhead Masters Call 800-998-7498 x 2673 for details
