Every electrician needs a comprehensive guide to the National Electrical Code,
and every student needs expert help for passing the Master Electrician's Exam.
The textbook is designed as a self-study or course textbook for those who wish
to understand the rules of the National Electrical Code. The NEC is explained
in detail with references to each specific NEC article that applies to a
discussion, example, or problem.
All the NEC rules are summarized in table and charts for easy reference. There
are dozens of worked examples that apply the NEC to designs or installations
suitable for installers, designers, inspectors, or students.
For ease of use, the Guide divides the NEC rules into those for wiring design
and those that apply to practical installations. There is also a review of general
electrical theory. Each chapter contains quizzes and an examination with
answers included. Also, several final examinations present realistic questions
such as might appear on typical electrical exams.
Totally updated guide to the 2005 National Electrical Codefor Journeyman electricians, electricians in training, and electrical inspectors.
° Designed as a complete course textbook for anyone who wants to understand the National Electrical Code's rules.
° Presents proven strategies for passing the Master Electrician's Exam.
° Its in-depth coverage encompasses every key area of the Code.
