Water Operator Certification Study Guide: A Guide to Preparing for Water Treatment and Distribution Operator Certification Exams by John Giorgi pdf free download

Water Operator Certification Study Guide: A Guide to Preparing for Water Treatment and Distribution Operator Certification Exams by John Giorgi pdf free download

Description:

This updated study guide follows the new requirements established by the American Board of Certification. It is organized by certification levels I, II, III, and IV. Questions are ranked for comprehension, application and analysis. With over 1000 vetted questions, twice as many as in the previous edition, operators get practice with questions similar to the exam. Answers are provided. Math and chemistry answers include the steps to solve the problems.

I downloaded this book and the previous version to help me prepare for the Water Treatment B and A exam in the state of FL. The purpose of this book is definitely meet but the content and information. the book helps operators prepare for the type of questions that can appear on their state exam (not the exact questions on the exams). This group includes all the critical topics that are covered on the exam from math, to process troubleshooting, safety and many other common topics water operators are asked on exams and must know to do their job. Since this book is done in conjunction with the Board of Association of Certification, this book is very helpful for operators whose state follows ABC Standards and Need to Know Criteria on their exams.
My experience, overall, is doing the practice questions for each section and level, helped me understand which topics I mastered and which areas I needed to study more.
I passed my Water A exam in FL in August 2011 the first time and this book helped a lot. This book does not; however, replace studying for the exam and you will need the required books from Sacramento but is helpful to test how much the test taker has mastered.
I am taking my Water A through ABC next month and I plan on using this book to refresh on the kind of questions on the exam. I would recommend this guide to anyone preparing to take a Water Certification Exam regardless of level. Once you own the book, it can be used to study for all levels of Water Operator certification.
Overall this book is probably one of the best certification guides out there for Water plant operators.

Air Quality by Thad Godish pdf free download

Air Quality by Thad Godish pdf free download

Description:

Ozone-destroying chemicals, greenhouse gases, and dangerous airborne substances that were once thought to be benign are the most urgent issues facing air pollution control experts. Students need a thorough, updated reference that explores these current trends while also covering the fundamental concepts of this emerging discipline.

A new revision of a bestseller, Air Quality, Fourth Edition provides a comprehensive overview air quality issues, including a better understanding of atmospheric chemistry, the effects of pollution on public health and the environment, and the technology and regulatory practices used to achieve air quality goals.

New sections cover toxicological principles and risk assessment. The book also contains revised discussions on public policy concerns, with a focus on air quality standards for ozone depletion and global warming, and the health effects of particulate air pollutants.

This edition continues to serve as a very readable text for advanced level undergraduate and early graduate study in environmental science, environmental management, and in programs related to the study of public health, industrial hygiene, and pollution control.

As a professional Environmental Consultant (Industrial Hygienist), I enjoyed the level of detail this book provides, as well as the specificity. Godish breaks things down from the chemical level, and supplements the needed chemical discussions with higher level discussion.

The book could use some updated research (but then, the research could use some updating too in most cases), and the chapters could also use some subjective discussion of the impacts of the effects noted, especially when discussing anthropogenic effects. However, these are hardly shortcomings.

Highly recommended for anyone in an air-related profession, or studying in this field. Might be a little difficult to process for high school students, but may present a good challenge for an excellent AP class.
