Try Electrical Installation Work by Brian Scadden. [he used to set the 2391 papers for C&G] everything is in it. It's also just the right size to prop up a wobbley table when you finished.Davy.

Hi
Can anyone who has just sat the vetassess practical exam let me know how much theory is involved. The info I got from them says about impedance and reactance etc. But all that stuff is lost right at the back of my brain.
Also the motor circuit with the banana leads on the board? Is it drawn on the board and you just have to join the relevant parts of the circuit to make it work with no actual motor?

If anyone can help thanks very very much.

A very worried man from Hull...

when you do your theory, what can you take in with you? eg are you meant to know all the band colours of a resistor from memory?

For those with time on the hands (my test is on the 30th oct 2008, tomorrow). I have found this book invaluable, i got the 2nd hand ones (mint condition)for under a tenner. All the basics needed for the theory part. Worth every penny..
