Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMOTIVE BRAKE SYSTEMS, 5E is the ideal book to provide readers with comprehensive coverage of the theory and repair procedures related to automotive brakes. Students, entry-level technicians and experienced technicians will all benefit from this book's two-volume approach: a Classroom Manual that details the theories and application of the total brake system, sub-system, and components, combined with a corresponding Shop Manual that provides real-world symptoms, diagnostics, and repair information about these systems. This book includes updated information on the latest materials used in brake systems as well as the latest information on current electronics. In addition, there is expanded coverage of electric braking systems that is general enough not to distract readers with highly detailed, manufacturer-specific information. The ASE Challenge questions at the end of each chapter of the Shop Manual and a Practice Exam in the Appendix will prepare readers for the ASE (A5) certification exam. TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMOTIVE BRAKE SYSTEMS, 5E, with its Classroom Manual and Shop Manual, offers readers all the information they need to understand, diagnose, and repair most problems that might occur with today's brake systems.
