  • The Hillier's Motor Vehicle Fundamentals Book 1, is one of the best study books I have ever used. It gives you detailed information on how vehicle components work and what they are for, without getting too complicated. It describes elements in such an easy way you'd wouldn't believe you didn't understand it before. I have used other study books that I didn't really understand but the Hillier's book helped me so much that I probably wouldn't have passed Motor vehicles level 1 at college. The book gets straight to the point with an easy to use index and titled paragraphs I'd recommend this to anyone studying Motor Vehicle Technology at college or even if you just want to learn something new and you don't really need to know a lot about cars to understand this book unlike any other books. - Amazon Product Review
