Tips and Tricks for the 17th Edition Exam


In order to pass your City and Guilds 2382-15 exam, you must prepare yourself as much as you can.

Here are a few extra tips and tricks to help you pass the exam:

  1. Learn your Definitions you must know your definitions. Yes, you can look them up in BS7671 but it would be to your advantage to know them outright. They are not that hard to learn and you will be using them all the time in your career as an electrician anyway.
  2. Smart use of table of contents in BS 7671 During the exam you will be allowed to use the BS7671 book. However if you do not know your way around that book reasonably fast than you will not stand a chance passing the exam. Because of this use your table of contents to your best advantage by inserting additional notes and marks everywhere throughout the book, starting with the table of contents. Your book can look as messy as you line, as long as you can use it fast, that is all that matters.
  3. Try to get your hand on past exam papers. You can find a few here.
  4. Save yourself some money and instead going for a five day course, go for a self study online course instead. Remember all the answers are in the book. This means all you have to learn is how to find them and for this the best way is to practice, practice and practice some more.

Good luck! :)
