Exam Success: IEE Code of Practice 2377

The IEE and City & Guilds have jointly produced a new book that is intended to help candidates for the City & Guilds 2377 certificate. The book specifically helps candidates prepare for the exam and gives particular benefit to those who may not have previously taken exams via City & Guilds Global Online Assessment (GOLA) system.

The book gives candidates excellent practice before they sit the City & Guilds multiple-choice, open book 2377 exam. The book is organised in the same way as the exam, and includes full sample papers from both parts of the exam. Worked through answers to questions are designed to reinforce knowledge and understanding of the IEE's Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.

The book features revision help, handy tips and advice from the examiners and an FAQ section, all of which should make candidates feel confident and ready for the big day.
