Hi all. Firstly i appreciate theres probably posts on this very subject and believe me i have looked. Have found posts on people buying new but not upgrading. Anyway i have my nic domestic installer assessment due relatively soon. I have both red osg and regs book. Do i definately need to buy both new in green or are there ammendments to 1 or both of them? I was under the impression until recently you would only need to buy new after a totally new edition was published? Mo money, mo money!!!Cheers in advance and please could we keep the sarcasm to a bare minimum!! After recent open wallet surgery i could do without it all!!!

Yeah have looked at amazon. 115 quid for the 3 books. Ouch! Was hoping to buy/download a printable ammendment for the regs at least

There were too many adjustments and introductions for the creation of a download. Unfortunately everybody has had to re-purchase a new Regs book. There was a lot of hoo-hah about it back then too!

Definately getting stung in this trade. Having recently finished my 2391 in college iv only had the brb about 2 years. Buy the bgb now then whats stopping them bringing further ammendments out again before the 18th edition

I guess the winning question is, if you were running the show and could get away with it thus swelling your coffers, would you ?

while we are discussing books etc I will remind people not to buy the current code of practice for in service inspection and testing of electrical equipment (the purple PAT Book)- unless they absolutely have to - as it is currently under review and scheduled to be republished in November.

Borrowed that 1 from college when i did the pat testing exams. Found it a bit fragmented. Info all over the shop. Not properly categorized like regs. Just my opinion!

Evening all!

Having the osg red, brb & the previous edition gn3 I wonder if you have to have the new "Electricians Guide to the Building Regulations" Not sure! One thing I am sure of is we are all being shafted. No wonder you see sets of books, meters & tools being sold on ebay. The outlay in this game is a joke especially if your starting out..
