when you book in for your test ask em to send you a revision book, shouldn't really need it though as it is one of the simplest exams going, all multiple choice , just common sense

"he said 'give me 5 mins' and he came back and said "

he ran to the phone or away for some privacy and used his cell to phone his boss........" boss ,I found a kid who will work for nothing on his days off,should I hire him?"

WTF happened over there, why am i not seeing apprenticeships....you know the ones where you get paid to go to college? where the company made a commitment to the apprentice ...and vice versa? you know the one where you straightened nails when there was no gear to spread?

good luck though hopefully the company actually gives you a shot at some paid work

you can get the book from any libary,don't pay out for it cos you'll never look at once you've done the test.
it does make me wonder why when i work for big firms i get 2.28% CITB deducted,yet in over 20 years i've never seen an apprentice on site.
i think if they pay your costs and you're actually working with another plasterer then you should go for it,just don't let them use you for slave labour,make sure you learn from it.
