Q: How often is the References to the EPC book published?
A: The book used to be published once a year, in late January or early February, to include the changes up to 31 December of the previous year. Starting 2009, an up-to-date issue is published more regularly, enabling candidates to obtain a more or less complete version for the exam earlier on.
Q: Can I get a subscription to References to the EPC?
Q: Can I buy an update and get a discount?
A: No, starting at 2009 the book is no longer issued as a loose leaf edition with a binder, where the update did not include the binder. An update is now, in fact, an entirely new copy of the book, updated for the new year. No discount is available for an update.
Q: Can I order just one of the books?
A: No, the books are sold as a set of two.
Q: Does the author publish any other books on this or a related subject?
A: Yes, the author has written a detailed book on EQE Paper C and produced several booklets with a detailed analysis of the C papers. The Book and the booklets can be ordered at DeltaPatents.
