2391 Revision

Introduction
The 2391 Theory examination is ‘closed book’,
in other words you cannot take any reference
books into the examination room.
However in order to work through the questions
you will be required to make reference to the
following publications:
BS 7671, On-Site Guide and Guidance Notes 3

Please remember
You will find questions that you cannot attempt
because you have not yet covered those
particular items. Do not be put off. All areas
will be covered in due course

Please remember
When carrying out questions involving
calculations you will need to use factors from
IEE publications. During the examination
ALL factors will be given in the examination
paper
