HASH(0xa4d435dc) out of 5 stars Worth the wait... Oct. 29 2015
By Michelle & Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book at a great price and will taking a class soon. It was used but it was in great shape and was decided as description. Not much to add but it's a must have book for Fire Office 2 in Florida.

Book condition was perfect and the reading material was alright. Plenty of information on fire protection systems and guidelines. It does not identify systems by make or how to inspect this system.
HASH(0xa4d437ec) out of 5 stars Good study. Aug. 29 2013

Good overall look into the fire protection systems. It is a well written descriptive perspective of the working of the different systems involved in building construction.
HASH(0xa4d43ae0) out of 5 stars Horribly written March 28 2014

I had to have this for a class. Fair warning this book is like reading Hemingway. The run on sentences is tedious and the grammar is horrendous.

It's a textbook. What more can I say? It is filled with information that you need for a class and it is something that you have to have.
