I read this book cover to cover to help me prepare for the exam. Got a 80% on the first assesment, 88% on the 2nd try so I was feeling pretty good about going into the exam. Get into the exam and 90% of the material on the exam is not covered in the book, what a joke...
Reading about the elevation flags and section cut flags etc...NOTHING
Read about inverse square law...NOTHING
what a waste of 3 days reading this book and weeks prepping for this exam again...
Also, I spoke to Infocomm about this book and the response from Infocomm was, the people that wrote this book were not allowed to talk to the people at Infocomm, so basically they wrote a book bring blind...
The exam questions were refreshed since the last time I took it back in August as well...
Your better off probably taking the online virtual classroom training on infocomm's website
The book is decent to have around in your home or office as a quick reference, but as far as using it to study for the CTS exam? STAY AWAY.
Like the CTS exam itself, this book is not technical. It does hit a couple of technical bits, like speaker and projection math. Mostly, it is about project process from beginning to end. One thing that would have been a sweet addition would be a fold out poster illustrating every stage of a project, who is involved in each, and what documents go where. For example, a Change Order goes after budget approval, but before an installer actually makes any change. I would advise any CTS candidate to make such chart, as this kind of data is the core of the CTS exam.
There are some misprints as another reviewer pointed out. The formula for the resistance of a speaker circuit wired in parallel was printed wrong and that was in fact on my exam.
The practice exam included on the CD was a great tool as well. The questions were not the same as the exam, so memorizing them won't help, but the form and general content were spot on. Taking the practice exam is a good indicator for how much studying you need to do.
