I guess I might have to stump the cash then... Can anyone beat £54 that Amazon are selling for or is that a fair price do you think?

That's very cynical that is, but probably bang on the money (if you'll forgive the pun).

Cost me £65 so yes snap it up.

I paid £45.00 at my local college library. It is where i get all my books, Takes a little while, about 2 weeks.

By the way, you will not need BS7671 until the end of your first year on the 2330 course.

Sorry I don't wish to sound patronising, but why would anyone want to sell their 17th edition (unless they have 2). I use mine on every job I do. Any good electrician will have it with them all the time. The regs book is not something you can read once and then forget. Once you start college and get into the realms of cable calculation, design current, disconnection times etc you will see what I mean. Incidentally if you are starting 2330 level 2 you won't need the 17th edition regs book until year 2.

Didn't ever need it. Passed with GN3, OSG, Scadden & Linsley. All exams passed with distinctions / credits.

Well yes you do sound patronising. I have already stated that I am just starting out, so obviously I am not clued up about all the ins and outs regards to these things. We have an equpment list and the book is required for the course according to the tutors. How do I know its something that a spark should carry it around at all times, because I bet most dont?

Dont be so condescending man, I bet there was a time when you knew sweet FA.

I don't think he sounded patronising and I bet if Saveloy hadn't included that sentence, " Sorry I don't wish to sound patronising" in his reply you wouldn't have even reacted or indeed felt that he was being patronising or, as you also put it, 'condescending'.:cool:
