    IET 18th Edition Regs Book - Best Place to Buy (price-wise)

    Hi, Can anyone recommend any decent places to buy the IEC 18th Edition Regs book online? There's the usual places like Waterstones, but its pretty pricey. Has anyone found any 'gems' out there to purchase the book from for a reasonable price? Thanks!

    Does anyone have IET membership?

    I find the IET membership page offers a bit too much detail and I'm not really sure what they offer or how much it would cost? Is anyone here a member? Do you feel its worthwhile, what do you get? How much does it cost? Cheers guys :)
