Book Description

19 Jan 2005 0750666242 978-0750666244 4
Basic Electrical Installation Work has helped thousands of students to gain their first qualification in electrical installation. Now in its fourth edition, this book has been completely restructured to provide a specific match to the requirements of the Installation route of the 2330 Level 2 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology from City & Guilds, and will also prove an essential purchase for students of the Level 2 NVQ in Installing Electrotechnical Systems (2356).

With a concise and practical approach, Trevor Linsley presents a complete resource for the 2330 Certificate, covering the three core units of the scheme, along with the Occupational Unit 4 - Installation (Buildings & Structures). An additional chapter Lighting - a key area of electrical installation work - is also included for reference.

This highly illustrated text features worked examples and exercises with answers to create an easily accessible student book, ideal for self-directed study. The content has been brought fully in line with the 2004 version of the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671:2001 (incorporating Amendments 1:2002 & 2:2004), and features new sections on Health & Safety, Employment Rights and Responsibilities, Personal Protective Equipment, and Safety Regulations, reflecting the emphasis of the 2330 Certificate in these particular areas.

Formerly Senior Lecturer at Blackpool & Fylde College, as well as Head of the NVQ Assessment Centre, Trevor Linsley is a best-selling author in electrical installation.

Format:Paperback
I am going through a career change which includes qualifying as a domestic electrician and this book has been vital in preparing myself for the courses i need to take. This is one of the most comprehensive study books i have ever read.

Everything is very clearly and logically laid out, and written in a style which is both easy to read and easy to understand. You do not need to read the book from cover to cover. I have dipped into different subjects and chapters at different times and still the meaning remains clear. The question papers at the end of each chapter are perfect for checking your understanding, making sure that you are learning the important information and not the trivia which has to be included for legal reasons!

Overall, a superb book which can be used as a revision/reference aid for experienced electricians and as a fantastic grounding in the subject for people who are starting out in the trade. Also, DIYers would be very well served by taking the time to read this book in order to fully understand what they should and shouldn't touch and why!

2.0 out of 5 stars No longer up to date 12 April 2011
Format:Paperback
Hi All, just a warning about this book and also the advanced edition as well. These books, whilst great in their time, are no longer up to date with the current 17th edition regs. For this reason there are numerous references to the BS7671 regulations that are not accurate.

The newer editions are up to date in accordance with 17th edition regs and are very good indeed. These outdated books will cause you a LOT of extra reading if you are studying for a qualification.

Format:Paperback
A great reference for the new diploma for electrical installations.
Well set out with key facts, definitions and safety first sign posts.
Well written questions with some answers given accurately at the rear of book.
Some other answers can be found in the text.
Need occasionally to cross reference to BS7671:2008 but most regulations are mentioned within this books text.
Good clear illustration in colour.
Some information repeats i.e. safe isolation. Maybe to highlight this concept.
Multi choice & short written questions plus diagrams asked for by students to complete.
Overall, a well researched product.
Not a complete item but a very good course companion.
Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could do better. 16 Mar 2012
By Othen
Format:Paperback
'Basic Electrical Installation Work' is something of a standard in the electricians' community. It is fairly easy to follow, but rather repetitive, indeed some of the diagrams and even some parts of the text appear several times. This is a pity, as the repetition adds nothing to the structure or content of the book, and it could have been made much more concise.
In summary: quite good technical content, but rather poorly constructed text and illustrations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Electrical Installation Work 15 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this to be a good entry level book with good information, however the advanced book in the set has a lot of repetition and if pushed you could get by just buying the advanced book. However it is well written and does assist. Useful for anyone who is studying the 2330 City and Guilds Electrical courses level 1 and 2.

3.0 out of 5 stars 17 Edition BS7671 25 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is a Guide to the City & Guilds 2357 course, but is NOT up to date with the current regulations: The "Green" IET 7671 2011 Amendment 1, Book covering the latest regulation amendments. In other words it's already out of date but still being printed and sold on. There are mathematical mistakes in this book that will confuse a student as well. At the moment it seems to be the only book which states it is intended for use with the 2357 course. If you follow this books examples and try to follow the reference to the NEW IET BS 7671 Regulations (amendment 1 Green Book) you will find a lot of them have been moved around or changed. This book should be amended or taken off the shelf as it is out of line with the BS 7671 regulations which it makes extensive reference to as learning material.

Yes it is a book for use with the City & Guilds 2357 course but it is definitely not up to date with the current regulations BS 7671 2008 with Amendment 1 20011. Date of this message 25 September 2012.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful!
A book completely lacking in continuity. Important subjects covered fleetingly. Poor grasp of electrical technology which perpetuates schoolboy myths about electricity.
