5.0 out of 5 stars What could be better and whom more well informed
Written by Carlo Forte - Navigation supremo at Plas y Brenin. What could be better and whom more well informed? Even if you have been navigating for years it is worth refreshing your practice which can become sloppy. Great book/guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expecting better
For an MLT book I was somehow expecting better than this. Its an okay book but could be a lot better. My biggest concern is that it glosses over route cards. Given that MLT is geared toward leading groups this is a vital area that needs considerably more attention, in my view a full chapter.
In summary, its adequate but it wouldnt be top of my reccomendation list.

I completed a navigation course with 'Pure Outdoors' who are brilliant, and they recommend this book to me and other people on the course. It is a great book. Easy to follow and put into practise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great guidance book especially for those wanting to go on ML training and assessment, 6 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Navigation in the Mountains: The Definitive Guide for Hill Walkers, Mountaineers & Leaders - the Official Navigation Book for All Mountain Leader Training Schemes (Paperback)
The book is easy to understand with a very good layout and design. Other books are either far too basic or go far too into complicated theory. Keep it simple, succinct with basic maps and diagrams - very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars THE AVERAGE BOOK, 27 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Navigation in the Mountains: The Definitive Guide for Hill Walkers, Mountaineers & Leaders - the Official Navigation Book for All Mountain Leader Training Schemes (Paperback)
An average nav book trying to use the one of five official books to make you think its a must have to take the various mountain awards,
To many diagrams featuring Harveys maps which are ok but hardly anyone uses them as they only cover parts of the uk and are easily torn,but probably sponsored by Harveys,

The G P S feature is ok but you really need a dedicated G P S book of which many are available here, it features garmin G P S so another sponsorship deal? nothing wrong with Garmin but what about the other excellant G P S products,
Its a bit of this and that here and there,

The pictures/diagrams are almost all old and in the Hillwalkers by steve long which of course is one of the five! if you have the Hillwalkers manual you will have seen the pictures and read some of the text, The average book.

This review is from: Navigation in the Mountains: The Definitive Guide for Hill Walkers, Mountaineers & Leaders - the Official Navigation Book for All Mountain Leader Training Schemes (Paperback)
And at present - whilst at might refer to it when training others - as a method book it's not much good - so for training purposes I'll stick with the Ultimate Navigation Manual!
