The 8083 series is the newest and most up-to-date, A&P textbooks available anywhere. They are also the official FAA part 147 curiculla and the actual source of all FAA knowledge and practical exam questions.
Besides that; FAA, working together with dozens of A&P instructors from Part 147 schools throughout the country just did a darn fine job in writing them. They are clearly written and full of exceptional charts, photos, and graphics to illustrate and explain every point. Then, each was extensively reviewed by instructors from over 50 schools. (ACtech books led that peer review for FAA)to insure completeness, accuracy, and understandability.
...And, they cost less than any competing A&P manuals.
In short, if you are an A&P student just beginning your classes; an experienced technician wanting a current refresher; a pilot wanting to learn the mechanics of your aircraft; or an aircraft homebuilder wanting the best knowledge to complete your project, there is no competition. These are them!
