First found out about this book while I was studying for my Journeyman Plumbers license exam.Found it at the library and was so impressed I ordered it from the publisher. Contains very much usefull information.Explains all about simple and compound offsets. Contains all the formulas you will need for performing plumbing tradework.I have the fourth addition and still consider it one of my best resources. I recommend it to anyone who is studying for their Journeyman or Master Plumbers exams or for anyone who would like to learn the professional way of performing tradework.

What can I say its math. I guess some people like math but I struggle with it. From someone who struggles this book was well written. I am able to follow everything that's going on. I'm learning and retaining all of it.

This reference book is extremely handy. It is required for the Master Plumbers Test for the State of Maryland. Very well laid out. Goes into detail with examples which help in understanding the material. Would like to have this in Kindle so I could have it with me all the time.

Not a complete waste of money but really, I am disappointed by the fact they had practice problems and then don't give the answers. The book is written fairly straightforward and in small sections which I like. The practice problems are not always talked about in the preceding text. I don't know why a book would ask questions about something they did not teach. If this was a textbook geared toward independent learners (like many math and physics textbooks I have read) they would have the answers in the back. If they were wanting to make more money, in addition they could have a student workbook with even more practice problems.

The reason i tated this book low is based on the information given as described. Did not state this was a book to test from. I was looking for a book for real time knowledge. Now this book does have great potential, it takes alot to research to verify the info given. As i said i assumed this was a book, not a class room book. Other than that the book is great, and i have learned from it, so in turn any knowledge gained is worth the money.

I purchased the book for an upcoming test, but I found a co-worker with it so I promptly returned it. I already have the 6th edition and thought there might be some new formulas, there wasn't. I definately DO NOT recommend anyone buy the book who already has the 6th edition. There is practically no difference. Don't get me wrong it's a nice publication with good information, but there's absolutely no reason to keep making new editions if the only thing that new is the front and back cover.

This is an excellent book. It covers any and everything that one would need to calculate plumbing. It was very helpful with my journeyman test.
