Description

For all electrical code courses taught by junior colleges, trade associations, or electrical union schools to students who are preparing for journeyman or master electrician licensing examinations.

 

This is the ideal comprehensive self-study or course guide for the entire 2011 NEC (National Electrical Code). Dr. Thomas Harman explains the code in detail, with references to the specific NEC articles that apply to each discussion, example, or problem. All NEC rules are summarized in tables for easy reference, and Harman provides dozens of worked example calculations. For ease of use, the Guide divides the NEC rules into those for wiring design and for practical installations; the book also reviews general electrical theory. Each chapter contains quizzes and an examination with answers. Three realistic sample final examinations are also provided.
