Description

Engineering A Level covers each of the compulsory AS and A2 units from Edexcel in a dedicated chapter. Full coverage is given to the three units required at AS Level, and the 3 additional A2 units required for completion of the A Level award.

Students following the GCE courses will find this book essential reading, as it covers all the material they will be following through the duration of their study. Knowledge-check questions and activities are included throughout, along with learning summaries, innovative ‘Another View’ features, and applied maths integrated alongside the appropriate areas of engineering study. All examples relate directly (and exclusively) to engineering practice, to emphasise application of theory in real-world engineering contexts.

The result is a clear, straightforward and easily accessible text. The book offers a valuable insight into various areas of engineering technology and related industries, providing a potential springboard to further training, eventual progression to qualifications within higher education, or to suitable employment within the engineering sector.

A companion website offers a variety of student resources providing practical assignments to supplement the material in the textbook, including using CAD / CAM, computer modelling (using spreadsheets), and Visio templates, shapes and symbols available for download.

Mike Tooley is formerly Director of Learning at Brooklands College, Surrey, and is the author of many best-selling engineering and electronics books.
