4.0 out of 5 stars Fire Protection Systems 20 May 2014
By Santo Nino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book condition was perfect and the reading material was alright. Plenty of information on fire protection systems and guidelines. It does not identify systems by make or how to inspect this system.
1.0 out of 5 stars Horribly written 28 Mar 2014
By Hawkeye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to have this for a class. Fair warning this book is like reading Hemingway. The run on sentences is tedious and the grammar is horrendous.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook 12 Oct 2013
By Heather O'donnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is being used in a college fire suppression class. The textbook is easy to understand and a great resource.
5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I ordered 12 Sep 2013
By TiffJeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is exactly what I ordered, however I have not taken the class yet, so that is all I can comment about.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good study. 29 Aug 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good overall look into the fire protection systems. It is a well written descriptive perspective of the working of the different systems involved in building construction.
