Automotive Technology Team Lowers Student Costs By $750!

The Automotive Team, part of the Applied Technologies Department, has decided to use a single, comprehensive textbook for their program instead of nine individual books.  Beginning summer 2010, automotive students will buy one textbook for under $110 and use that same textbook for the two year AAS program.  This is estimated to save the student $750 over their two years at MCC because they will not have to buy a new book for each automotive course. 

The book, “AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY Principles, Diagnosis, and Service” by James Halderman is NATEF compliant.  NATEF is the national certifying organization for automotive programs.  This innovative concept will save students money and increase student success rates.
