The book will help new students develop diagnostic skills and help experienced technicians improve even further.

Two new chapters have been added On-board diagnostics and Oscilloscope diagnostics and the coverage has been matched to the latest curricula of motor vehicle qualifications, including: IMI and C&G Technical Certificates and NVQs; Level 4 diagnostic units; BTEC National and Higher National qualifications from Edexcel; International Motor Vehicle qualifications such as C&G 3905; and ASE certification in the USA.
