This book presents the compulsory core of the new BTEC National in a way that encourages students to explore engineering for themselves, developing the expertise and knowledge required at this level. As well as a clear and accessible text, emphasis is placed on learning through activities, and self-evaluation through frequent knowledge-checks. Practice questions are also provided, and will prove particularly helpful for externally assessed units. This student-centred approach makes the book ideal for courses with restricted contact time.BTEC National Engineering is a completely new textbook that has been written by two members of the Edexcel syllabus writing team side by side with the drafting of the syllabus itself. Mike Tooley and Lloyd Dingle are also both experienced engineering lecturers and textbook authors.
