Long DescriptionThis theory-based Classroom Manual and its companion Shop Manual has been newly reorganized and redesigned to keep pace with industry trends and the needs of automotive education programs across the country. Its extraordinarily complete, technician-oriented coverage is guaranteed to lead users to mastery of all of the design, construction, troubleshooting techniques, and service procedures required to enter the workplace. For starters, the Classroom Manual begins with an important introduction to safety. This is followed immediately by a review of directly relevant electricity/electronics principles, plus more opportunities to gain practice in using scanners and oscilloscopes to develop critical thinking skills, diagnose problems, and make effective repairs. Today's Technician: Automatic Transmissions and Transaxles, 3rd Edition also features an all-new introduction to continuous variable ration transmissions, up-to-the-minute coverage of drivelines for front-wheel drive (FWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles, plus the latest information on today's high-tech electronic controls and automatic shifting devices. More extensive coverage of final drive components and drive chains, electrical problems, and basic electrical testing procedures - plus an all-new chapter on rebuilding transmissions - has also been added to the Shop Manual to provide users with an unparalleled learning experience. A complete ASE-style practice exam is also included here, allowing users to simulate the actual ASE Certification Exam experience as part of their test preparation.

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. Originally this was a 10 digit number known as ISBN-10, but has been replaced with a 13 digit version known as ISBN-13 (aka EAN-13) to better fit in with the industry standard product numbering system.

The ISBN system offers a unique numbering system for books and publications of various types. ISBN offers 9 identification digits for each book or publication and one check digit. ISBN-13 expands the available number set by doubling the available numbers. You might think that the extra three digits would more than double the available numbers but ISBN is limited within the EAN-13 numbering system and will always start with 978 or 979 as the first three digits, leaving only 9 more digits for the actual identification digits and again the last digit is the check digit.

Any ISBN-10 number can be converted to ISBN-13. Any ISBN-13 number that starts with 978 can be converted back to ISBN-10. ISBN-13 numbers that start with 979 cannot be converted to ISBN-10.

The conversion process from ISBN-10 to ISBN-13 is a rather simple one. Start with the first 9 digits of the ISBN-10 number, place 978 in front and calculate the new check digit using the standard EAN check digit calculation.

If you want to calculate the check digit for ISBN-10, that is done using a MOD-11 calculation that is very different than the EAN check digit process.


Look at the number above and below the barcode. You will see that except for the last digit in the ISBN number, all of the digits exist in the 13 digit version shown under the barcode right after the 978 and just before the new check digit of 5.

Now you can see how easy it is to convert between ISBN-10 and ISBN-13.
