This book is invaluable in describing the all important 'manner' of answering the exam questions, you may know the answers but you will fail the exam if you don't know the precise techniques involved in answering. This book tells you how.

The book has been around for a while so I am sure there are 100s of reviews. So just adding another opinion. Actually because it has been around for a while you would have thought someone would get rid off all the errors in it. I am talking major errors.
It shows you how the questions are structured and exactly how you should answer which really is the whole point of the book. And that's brilliant.
You just have to ignore lots of the answers. Its dangerous because unfortunately when you are doing the exam the stress is immense and its easy to remember the wrong facts from the wrong answers. So watch out.
Second and last thing to moan about is the make quality of the book. Or the lack of it. It fell apart after 2 days. For roughly £30 you would expect a bit better stuff. But a lots of gaffa-tape sorted it.
So all in all its alright. Definitely a must for the Test Inspection and Certification exam!

This book is excellent, it gives example answers that show exactly what they expect to see in your answers, what will give you marks and what doesn't.
There are a couple of example papers with expected answers as well.

This book gives all you need for revising for the C & G 2391-10 exam and assessment.
I need say no more than I have however, if you are considering attaining this qualification the book will be an invaluable study aid.

Good book for the written exam, very much like the exam success 2381/2382 book.
Goes through exam format and how to expect the questions to be worded and advice on how to answer them. (which is the same as in 2381/82)
Again two sample exams are set and answers are provided.
It gives you good idea on the type of questions you expect in the exam, and if you can put yourself in an exam setting against the clock, it's a fair taster.
Unfortunately it does not cover any of the practical side of the exam.
So Guidance Note 3 is needed to help you with that.
I would also consider purchasing 'Practical Guide to Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations' by Christopher Kitcher, this book runs you through test procedures, examples of calculations and also has a section of question at the back (with answers)
In your exam you will have 4 practical exams and one written.
I have rated this book as three because only covers the written exam and no practical plus the only difference between this book and the 2381/82 are the questions.

Firstly, this book will NOT give you the underpinning knowledge to pass the 2391 exam, nor is it meant to. It is an exam practice guide and as such the emphasis is on what is expected in terms of answer structure and presentation. It's easy to fail a written exam not through lack of knowledge but lack of understanding of what the examiners are looking for - this book goes some way to addressing this.

There are two sample papers with answers and comments/tips on maximising the marks gained; Will a one word answer suffice? What about including a diagram?

Some previous reviews have questioned the physical quality of the book but my copy seems well put together and so far there are no loose pages.

I would recommend this book to anyone sitting the 2391; it's bad enough losing marks on a question you can't answer but losing marks on something you know but have struggled to present effectively is much worse.

Good luck to anyone sitting the 2391 this year :-)
