I am looking for the Fundamentals book of automotive technology (2013) By Jones and Bartlett, ISBN# 9781284059465, The one listed on the college website my son is attending says Fundamentals of Automotive Technology with 2 year access? Can anyone help? Is this book the same?

Being the author/editor of this textbook, I look forward to hearing your feedback. We tried to infuse the book with tips, hints, and tricks from well over 100 combined years of teaching automotive technology. We also wrote from the perspective that the reader did not need to have much, if any previous background. But at over 2,000 pages, there is plenty of content to challenge just about every level of technician, from student to master certified! This was also written to go along with our CDX Online training system which includes over 900 videos, 80 interactive animations, 4,000 plus quiz and test questions, and 60+ diagnostic scenarios. This textbook aligns to the 2012 NATEF Accreditation standards, so it is current. I trust you will find it to be an interesting and helpful read, and I look forward to your comments! Kirk
