Most training manuals skip and bounce around the truck in a manner that's both confusing and disorganized. This manual, however, systematically guides the trainee in a logical, orderly method that works and makes sense. From the start of the inspection to it's end, the driver will never have to guess about where to go or what to inspect next. This is accomplished by displaying the truck and trailer components in sections that are logically and numerically organized followed by a thorough discussion of the components following the same logical, numerical order--making the pre-trip inspection far less intimidating and less confusing. While most manuals barely mention the components to be inspected, this manual discusses the components in great detail by first explaining their purpose and then by further explaining the multitude of problems that one could possibly find while inspecting a tractor and/or trailer or straight truck. Instead of black and white sketches that lack clarity and detail, this manual includes color photographs of every component covered. Never again will you have to wonder what a component really looks like nor will you have to embarrass yourself by asking someone. Also included are a sample score sheet and an inspection checklist that can be used for practice while training. This manual also contains several bonus pictures, compliments of the world champion extreme turbine race team Miss GEICO and AMF Offshore Racing. More importantly, this manual includes all the information needed to successfully pass the pre-trip inspection exam on the first try and also serves as a good refresher to those who already have a commercial driver's license using an approach that has worked time and time again.
