This book is your guide to passing the plumber's exam. Whether this is your first try or your third, and no matter what state or county exam you're taking, the information between the covers of this manual will help you pass.

Plumber's Exam Preparation Guide has hundreds of the type of questions that appear most often on plumber's exams. Each question is answered under both the Uniform Plumbing Code and the Standard Plumbing Code.

Clarifications and explanations are included when the answer involves an important point you might miss. And there's no need to flip back and forth to answers in another part of the book. The answer is printed right under each question.

Twenty chapters cover all the topics you'll find on most plumbing exams:

  • Both standard and specialized plumbing systems
  • Definitions of plumbing terms
  • Vents and venting
  • Traps
  • Interceptors and separators
  • Private sewage disposal systems
  • Storm water drainage
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Fire protection piping
  • Gas systems
  • Plumbing isometrics
  • And plumber's math!

One section explains how to prepare for the exam and includes a list of recommended references for your use. At the back of the book there's a complete sample exam that can predict how you'll do on the real test - and suggest what subjects you should review again.

If getting certified and receiving top pay for your work as a journeyman or master plumber is your goal, this is the book for you!
