Bill Bolton's Engineering Science is a comprehensive and popular textbook written for pre-degree engineering students. The coverage goes beyond the core science to include the mechanical, electrical and electronic principles needed in most courses. A concise and accessible text is supported by numerous worked examples and problems, including multiple choice questions.
The fourth edition has been redesigned throughout and fully updated. The coverage has been carefully matched to the relevant units of the new BTEC National from Edexcel, which will replace the current syllabus in 2001/2. It has also been matched to the Curriculum 2000 specifications of the Advanced VCE (formerly Advanced GNVQ). The breadth of coverage also means that the book is an ideal general introduction to its subject area for City & Guilds and HNC / HND students. Part of the Newnes Core Text series, this title is also an ideal international textbook for pre-degree and foundation courses.
