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.

good book, but a lot of the information is repetative. There were actually many errors by the author and/or publisher of the book.
Excellent approach to teaching auto mechanics
By Daniel S. Hummel Ii on Jun 06, 2013
I've read many college textbooks on a number of subjects and I must say that I was very impressed with this textbook series. The tone is personal and teaching style is inductive (when used along with the hands-on shop manuals), which is the approach that I learn best from (as opposed to bland technical data and rote memorization). The textbook is very thorough; detailed enough for a beginner, but doesn't feel too "dumbed down" for the experienced mechanic once you get past the introductory chapters. I highly recommend this textbook series for anybody studying auto mechanics for personal or professional reasons. Peace!
