This text/workbook/CD-ROM package presents material organized around the A8 ASE test area and correlated to the NATEF task list and the ASE J-1930 standard. It covers the operation, diagnosis, and servicing of all systems that impact a vehicle's drivability. A diagnostic approach develops procedures and skills for troubleshooting all major components, and diagnostic stories reinforce learning. The accompanying workbook contains worksheets for shop assignments which build diagnostic and servicing skills, and the CD-ROM includes sample ASE-type questions, videos, a glossary, and A8 references.
