Adapted from the author's successful Science for Motor Vehicle Technicians, this book aims to develop the student's understanding of statics, dynamics, energy, machines and engine power against a background of basic mechanical science, and is supported by many illustrations.

Intended primarily for students following the BTEC Level 2 course in Motor Vehicle Science, this book will be suitable for all motor vehicle students following similar courses. It will also be of value to overseas students who are preparing for the City and Guilds of London Institute Examination Motor Vehicle Technician Certificate Part 1.
