Old information.... most of it is not relevant with today's alarm systems. I bought this hoping it would help me with a new job as an alarm install tech, good for alarm basics, or for someone who has to repair an old system. It touches very slightly on the stuff we use today... I paid $70 for the book and felt ripped off... I feel like $20 would have been a fair price for this book.
I bought this book for the Florida State Alarm Exam. I think it is the only reason why someone would by this book because its outdated for the security industry. The book was a good read but it was quite confusing because it had so much content. I decided to take a preparation course before taking the actually exam. I order the Power Learning Systems online course from Steve Dale and it help me understand this book and the others that were on the Florida exam. The Florida State Alarm exam was very difficult and I thought I would post this comment so others won't make the mistake of not properly preparing for this difficult exam. I wish you well on the exam.
