Modern Residential Wiring is a comprehensive text that presents the latest installation and repair practices, as well as a brief review of the principles of electricity. Essential information regarding tools, materials, equipment, and processes are included. Specialized installations, such as computer wiring, are also addressed. A career chapter introduces students to the different jobs that are available to those that have wiring skills while a separate appendix reviews the math skills needed by electricians.
  • Content corresponds to the 2014 NEC, and text features help familiarize students with the use of national and local codes for reference.
  • Subjects are arranged in a logical sequence that follows the general order of installation; however, chapters can be used on a stand-alone basis.
  • Step-by-step procedures, along with detailed images, make the most complicated tasks easy to understand.
