This eighth volume of Reed's Marine Engineering Series prepares
students for the Department of Transport Certificates of Competency in
General Engineering Knowledge. It also covers the syllabus for Engineer
Cadet courses in the subject. The syllabus and principles involved are
virtually the same for all examinations but questions set in Class One
require the most detailed answers.
The book follows the same pattern as the other volumes in this series
which has proved so successful: emphasis on basic principles, extensive
illustrations worked examples included in the text, practice examples
at the end of each chapter and specimen exam questions at the end.
