5.0 out of 5 stars Collision Repair and refinishing 27 Dec 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It is to my understanding the text is used by the students of vehicle repair at the colleges. My husband thought it was a good tool to keep abreast of the changes that have been made over the years, even though he has been an auto body person for many years. For those wanting to refresh or taking a course or writing to receive their certificate it's perfect.
