This book is a lot better that the 16th edition incarnation. It addresses most of the concerns that most domestic electricians worry about (at least I hope that the electricians reading this will worry about such things).

Such issues as "can I have a switch fused spur in a bathroom?" or "do I need to notify building authorities for extending a circuit?" and if you're used to using the older guides, you should have no problem finding an answer in this much better laid out book. It isnt perfect, but it does answer 90% of your queries.

I also feel that this book gives me a lot more knowledge-ammo to defend myself with when an inspector comes for his yearly jobsworth visit!!...sigh...This book also addresses all those pinickity RCD based questions that I know are tumbling around in your sparky heads right now.

Honestly, get this book, it really helps make things a lot clearer and will help when those pesky Inspectors / Agent Smiths out there come knocking:

"you seem to think that the rules dont apply to you Mr Anderson...that you are somehow different..."

This book is padded out too much with information from the OSG and does not concentrate on the Building Regs, having recently sat the C&G 2393-10 I found that some of the questions could not be answered from this book but all could be answered from the NICEIC equivalent publication, in summary it has a lot of good information but not specific and complete enough for the title

As with all technical books, one does not tend to read from cover to cover but use it for confirming the latest regulation so that ones work complies. This book is very useful for any electrician, quealified of apprentice, as the electricians work seems to cross all the boundaries between electrical regulations and building regulations. It is written in easy to follow text, and a very useful guide to anybody in the electrical trade.

as a retired electrician, and involved inn extension to my house, i wanted to be sure of some related regs as there are variants between england/wales and up here in scotland. i found the book clear and precise and very helpful in these matters.
advice on positioning of smoke alarms and fire ratings for ceiling downlighters were particularly helpful.
all in all a great publication.

cheers, alan.

I Purchase one of this book earlier part of 2014 but when I took it to my course it did not contain all the pages. Whenever time the instructor told the class to turn to a certain page and paragraph I would either find the answer on a different page number or it just wouldn't be in the book.

An excellent novel although the plot is almost non existent. Nice colours and lovely binding. The multipurpose design of the cover allow it to be used both as a bookmark or standard pulp body armour. Excellent.
