It has been a long time since I last used a map and compass, and a recent unplanned detour from a well trodden path in the hills reminded me just how rusty my skills were when I needed them most! As such, I decided I needed to to brush up on what I initially learned on an orienteering course about 25 years ago.

This book was just the ticket. It is clear and concise, with good diagrams, and everything I had previously learned soon came flooding back to me... plus I picked up a few extra tips that I was previously unware of.

I still believe that map and compass skills are probably best learned (and remembered) when undertaken in a group environment (plus it's far more enjoyable learning in the pub with friends) but with a little practise, I see no reason why a complete beginner couldn't grasp the basic skills from the book.

A quick tip... the book suggests that if you can't remember map symbols, you can cut out a map key from your map and cover this in plastic for use during your walk. I thought this was a great idea, but did not want to destroy my map. I was planning on scanning a copy of the key using my PC instead, but I have subsequently discovered that you can download map keys for Ordnance Survey maps in A4 format from the OS website (they're very handy!). If you are a teacher, or learning as part of a group, you can also download teaching/show cards for students there. For more info, visit the Ordnance Survey website, click on the 'Education' section and then 'Teaching Resources'.

In summary, whether you are a map and compass newbie or just a bit rusty, this book should meet your requirements.

An excellent little book for both the beginner to learn from scratch and for the experienced to brush up on the finer techniques and forgotten skills. The book is clearly written, with good pictures, diagrams and test exercises. It is the right size to carry in your pack, has a good waterproof cover and also includes a 'navigational aid' card with scales, romers, pacing and timing charts. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in walking safely anywhere in the world, as it teaches all the skills to avoid getting lost!

This is a great pocket size sturdy book and I have found it easy to read. The teaching is thoughtfully laid out, obviously by someone who has a lot of experience.

A very good book and the same in the Kindle edition. Down to earth simplistic, easy to understand read. The only reason I havent given it five stars is the size, the text size is too small for me.

What a smashing read. It inspires you to get out there and start walking. Invaluable if your an absolute beginner or brushing up on your navigating skills. Doesn't use jargon and keeps it simple. Brilliant buy

For the most part this guide is very easy to follow and understand with clear diagrams showing you how. My only criticism would be that when Pete Hawkins is trying to explain magnetic variation he really isent that clear he kind of goes off on a tangent or maybe it's just me. Otherwise great guide thoroughly recommend .

This is my second pete hawkins book, the first being map and compass. I have attended two of petes courses, succesfully achieving bronze and silver national navigation awards. This chap writes a clear precise accurate read. His personal teaching skills are second to none. AND !!!!! He's a fantastic fun, jolly, interesting bloke to have pint of ale with at the anchor pub in tideswell. see you on the gold course. !!! Thanks pete
