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.
Horribly written 28 Mar 2014

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.
Great Textbook 12 Oct 2013

This is being used in a college fire suppression class. The textbook is easy to understand and a great resource.
Just what I ordered 12 Sep 2013

It is exactly what I ordered, however I have not taken the class yet, so that is all I can comment about.
Good study. 29 Aug 2013

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.
