This book has been designed as a full programme of study for the most popular mechanical engineering option units followed by students on Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Operations and Maintenance BTEC National Certificate and National Diploma courses. The author has structured the material so that manageable sections of text are complemented by in-text questions and features such as Test Your Knowledge, Key Points and Activity panels, making this an ideal book for student-centred classroom learning and independent study.
Written for the 2002 BTEC National specifications, this book will also be useful as an option unit resource for AVCE.
Alan Darbyshire is a practising FE lecturer and experienced author of textbooks for Intermediate GNVQ and AVCE. As a member of the Edexcel team he drafted several of the mechanical engineering units for the new BTEC National specifications.
