This is a great book! Very well illustrated and explained!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practical Guide to Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations: Conforms to 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2008) and Part P of Building Regulations (Paperback)
Having bought this book fairly recently I can now confirm that I think it is worth every penny!
The book is really well explained and very well illustrated with really clear high quality photographs, with nothing left out which you could conceivably need to know in readiness for enabling you to tackle this notoriously difficult and tough exam with confidence.
You can see that Christopher Kitcher really knows his subject and that he also knows how to competently and properly teach it.
The way in which he has written this book equips you with the right mindset
from the very beginning to be able to quite literally transform yourself into a really good and competent Electrical Inspecting and Testing Professional. You will learn things from this book that you didn't even know you didn't know! :0)
This is why so many practising and worthy electricians fail this exam, because they go forth and attempt it in the mistaken belief that they already know enough to pass, only to find, when the time comes, that they really didn't know as much as they thought, and they get stuck! No stone is left unturned, and there is a great and well detailed section at the back of the book where it walks you through an excellent breakdown of everything you could ever need to know, guaranteed, relating to..."Now for the Exam"... And he then proceeds to cover EVERYTHING you need to know that will help you immensely when the time comes, and will give you a big advantage over everyone else who has never read this book!
I am very pleased with this book so far, and I can see this as being the PERFECT PRIMER for preparing and equipping yourself to be able to pass both the City & Guilds 2392 and the City & Guilds 2391 Testing and Inspection Examinations. If you are an electrician, and you want to be sure to PASS these exams, either one or both of them, then you NEED to get this book and start studying your way through it right now!
