Why is CSCS revision material needed?

Revising for your CSCS Health & Safety Test gives you a much higher chance of passing. In our experience, you are more likely to pass at your first attempt if you have used revision material than if you haven't.

What revision material is there?

There are a number of methods you can use to revise for your CSCS Test:

  1. The mock test DVD
  2. A question and answer book
  3. The Setting Out video

It is best to use all three of these revision methods to ensure that you have the best possible chance of passing your CSCS Test.

Mock test DVD

The mock test DVD simulates the CSCS Test on your PC in the comfort of your home. It uses the same sort of questions that are in the actual CSCS Test. You can use it as often as you as you need to.

The DVD includes both the questions and the answers that are found in the CSCS Test's multiple-choice section. It also includes behavioural case studies. These case studies tie in with the Setting Out video.

The DVD comes in two different versions:

  1. GT100 DVD (ISBN 978-1-85751-436-0) for operatives and specialists
  2. GT200 DVD (ISBN 978-1-85751-437-7) for managers and professionals

The 2016 edition is the current version. This has updated content that reflects legislation changes. The next version will be the 2017 edition which is due to be released on 1st April 2017.

You should ensure that your DVD's questions are up-to-date by updating it when you get it. There is a web update option on the main menu to help you do this.

Will the DVD work with my PC?

The DVD will run on most modern PCs, but please check that your PC meets the minimum requirements outlined below. Unfortunately the mock test DVD is not compatible with Apple Mac OSX and will not work on any Apple branded devices.

There is also support for British Sign Language.

The managers and professionals DVD does not contain voice-overs and there are just English questions and answers.

Question and answer book

The revision book contains multiple-choice format questions and answers. These questions and answers are similar to the ones in the actual CSCS Test. There are also behavioural case studies which are based on the principles in the Setting Out video.

The book comes in two different versions:

  1. GT100/16 (ISBN 978-1-85751-432-2) for operatives and specialists
  2. GT200/16 (ISBN 978-1-85751-433-9) for managers and professionals

The 2016 edition is the current version. This has updated content that reflects legislation changes. The next version will be the 2017 edition which is due to be released on 1st April 2017.

You can ensure that the version you have is the current one by checking the CITB's latest test questions and revision material updates.
