When I went to school I found a series of
soft-cover books by Aviation
Technicician Training Course quick handy. (Aviation
Maintenance Publishishers Inc./ P.O. Box 890 /
Basin WY / 82410)

They have one called "Aircraft Gas Turbine
Powerplants"  and can be ordered by phoning
1-800-443-9250  order number # EA-TEP-1 -the cost
of mine was $ 6.95 USD. (back in 1984).

Good luck
