    The Environmental Management Revision Guide: For the NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management is the perfect revision aid for students preparing to take their NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management. As well as being a handy companion volume to Brian Waters’ NEBOSH-endorsed textbook Introduction to Environmental Management, it will also serve as a useful aide-memoire for those in environmental management roles. The book aims to:

    • Provide practical revision guidance and strategies for students
    • Highlight the key information for each learning outcome of the current NEBOSH syllabus
    • Give students opportunities to test their knowledge based on NEBOSH style questions and additional exercises
    • Provide details of guidance documents publically available that students will be able to refer to.

    The revision guide is fully aligned to the current NEBOSH syllabus, providing complete coverage in bite-sized chunks, helping students to learn and memorise the most important topics. Throughout the book, the guide refers back to the Introduction to Environmental Management, helping students to consolidate their learning.
