Customer Reviews

very good book  March 12, 2011

I spent quite a bit of time researching to find a good book on residential wiring for a rewire project I was looking to tackle in my early 1900 house. In the end, I purchased this textbook. This book is very friendly. There is a wealth of information inside the textbook and it is well organized. This text uses a practical approach and comprehensive coverage to guide students step-by-step through the critical tasks and responsibilities that face today's professional residential electricians. I got it when I needed it on time and at a better price than going to any book store near my home or at school.

Electrical Wiring Residential: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
