  • Uniform plumbing code

    I'm looking at purchasing the Uniform Plumbing Code Illustrated Training Manual by IAPMO. I was told it would be a great reference for me in preparation for the CA plumbing contractor license exam. I was wondering if it was worth it (approx $150)or should I just stick to the regular UPC? Or am I completely off track? Any suggestions.

      I used the Howard Massey Plumbers Exam Preperation guide. It was a great help to me.

        it's a great reference as it is illustrated and basically helps you to interpret the code much better. considering a regular code book is roughly a $100. spend the extra $50 and get the illustrated one.

        then next time you can get the $100 one as things won't change that drastically.

        also a good thing to do to pass the test is take the 2 day crash course. the business law is the tough one.

          Gotta agree with Rick on the 2 day "Crash Course" they were the best money I spent towards getting my licenses

            Good deal, I thought the "pictures" might make it a little more useful. The prep course sounds like a definite must especially for the law portion.
            Thanks again.

              Crash course.
              Don't mind the chattering of the numberous monkeys.It helps if bring a couple bags of peanuts to keep them preoccupied while your trying to study/test.

                I just bought the illustrated version and really like it. It goes really in depth and explains the code in common sense terms. Highly recommend it.

                    As a CAUTION, the illustrated UPC does not contain the complete UPC.

                      Of course not. Got to leave something out of both so you have to buy both.

                          the training guide is a good complement to the code. but as said ya need both books.

                          as for the prep classes. they are a good idea. the business law i would not have passed with out it.


                          as for the plumbing. it prepped me for what they were going to ask? and they had some tricky questions.
