This is an excellent book. This book is a must have for students doing an nvq course, it is all in alphabetical order from above ground drainage to zinc weathering. It has all the basics of plumbing to the more advanced topic. This book helps with all assignment you have to compelete to get your nvq. It is a must have refrence book for all in the trade, because it give you vital information and british standards to conform too. I would as recomened you to get yourself a copy of Plumbing, Heating and gas installations, by R.D. Treloar (ISBN 0-632-05332-1). These two together give you an essential guide to plumbing and all you will need to know for your NVQ course.

I am a plumber and I think that this book is a really good reference book for plumbing students. It contains a lot of information and is very easy to use. It is basically a plumbing dictionary. Everything is in alphabetical order, so you can go straight to what you need to know. Say for example, you want to know what an anti gravity valve is. You look it up and this book will explain what it is and what it does.

But beware, this is only a reference book, you cannot rely on it to explain most plumbing principles, so if you are on a budget and can only afford one book for your studies, you are better off getting something else, like the JTL for example.

This is a wonderful book, it gives you a good all round understanding of plumbing and lead work.

It is meant to start you off with a knownledge of plumbing.

This book has a good combination of pictures, diagrams and text. To engage you and give you a good quick understanding of what you are looking for.

I recommend this for someone wishing to get a good understanding of plumbing.

This book covers more tradional things rather than new plastic push-fit pipework.
