Book 1 is similar to previous editions of Fundamentals of motor vehicle technology, but, with updated information. Book 1 is also aligned with topics that students will have learned about in earlier stages of study. Book 2 follows on with greater depth and breadth for modern vehicle technologies and electronic based systems and is more appropriate for advanced students and for existing technicians who want to develop knowledge of the modern vehicle. Book 2 deals in some depth with diagnosis of modern vehicle systems.
