Surely u will go through books on your course etc and would be beneficial to stick with them same ones as them? Once u get a good idea u could get any book to learn off ? Well u no wot a mean ....... Well i do ..... Lol

City and guilds have a new level 1 and 2 book due to be released end of this month. From what I've seen they cover most of the criteria you will be expected to achieve during your time. But don't rush into buying them without speaking to your own instructor. Good luck and enjoy the trade!

Also they are also bringing out a level 3 book , but from what I have seen they seem to be very text heavy

Learn from what ever is available. Google, Bing, yahoo search etc what you want ,no one is stopping you. But don't take us for fools, these book related threads are obviously set up !!!

I can recommend a lot of books but the moderators won't let me and what is the point the student thread is set up? Well guess the moderators have beef with the publishers who took painful and lengthy time to write the plastering books. Guess we need to learn from old school plasterers where most of them are in Heaven crying over us as art of plastering is dying out.
