<ul><li><p>Plumbing Merit Badge Workbook </p><p>This workbook can help you but you still need to read the merit badge pamphlet. </p><p>This Workbook can help you organize your thoughts as you prepare to meet with your merit badge counselor. You still must satisfy your counselor that you can demonstrate each skill and have learned the information. </p><p>You should use the work space provided for each requirement to keep track of which requirements have been completed, and to make notes for discussing the item with your counselor, not for providing full and complete answers. </p><p>If a requirement says that you must take an action using words such as "discuss", "show", "tell", "explain", "demonstrate", "identify", etc, that is what you must do. </p><p>Merit Badge Counselors may not require the use of this or any similar workbooks.</p><p>No one may add or subtract from the official requirements found in Boy Scout Requirements (Pub. 33216 SKU 637685).
