DSA Books

Hi Everybody,


I'm new to riding and am looking to get some books for the theory test. 

Would anyone know if these three are any good?
(1) The Official DSA Theory Test for Motorcyclists Book 2013 edition

(2) The Official DSA Guide to Learning to Ride (Driving Standards Agency)

(3) The Official DSA Guide to Riding - the essential skills (Driving Standards Agency)

Also if there were any second hand copies available for sale I'd be happy to buy them.:biggrin:

Thanks
Anthony

They all sound good. Don't forget the HIGHWAY CODE.
The above books are probably available to borrow from your local library.

Thanks for that. 


That would be great of the library had them, I'll head down on Monday to have a look. 

I really don't want to have to buy them new as they're expensive enough!

Hey Dabbsy, that has some great reviews on Amazon and a few other places, thanks for recommending it, I'll definitely get it.


I was reading that it has 900 test questions in it but one Amazon review said it didn't have them, do you know if the questions are in the new edition?

Hey Dabbsy thanks for recommending that book. it's unreal!


Anyone reading this and looking to learn about riding buy "Pass the Bike Test" by Hayes & Paul. I've read around about riding but this has it all in one place. Absolutely essential.:biggrin:
