Try the level 2 books 2330, If I remember right they have some single confirguration but not a massive amount. But if it's worth 20 pound for just that info, I don't know. Might be worth googling "single cable wiring"
Remember that the neutral in lighting circuits go to the luminaire/light fitting not the switch, they are the switch wires (line conductor colours brown).
Sockets just same as T&E.
