** Please note, the eBook does not include the workbook. This can be brought separately, here.
It is a textbook designed to be actively used by students, and not just to be read.
The inclusion of logos, real-life objects and CAD models will stimulate students’ interest in the subject matter.
Exam-type questions are included throughout, as are worked examples and exercises, ensuring excellent preparation for the Junior Certificate exam.
Refreshing in its use of colour, examples and approach to topics, Understanding Technical Graphics carefully balances text and graphics.
The clutter-free layout, along with the artwork and photos which accompany the technical graphics, will immediately appeal to students.
Explanations and examples are deliberately kept short, in the interests of clarity.
Covering the syllabus comprehensively, Understanding Technical Graphics, together with its workbook, will give students a thorough grasp of the key principles of Plane and Descriptive Geometry which form the basis of the course.
