Residential Wiring Laboratory Manual provides students and professional electricians-in-training with realistic, hands-on opportunities to develop their skills in applying regulations concerning securing conductors, working with circuits that employ three- and four-way switches, performing box sizing calculations, and using residential schematic symbols. Readers are required to analyze each lab assignment carefully in order to derive their own floor plan and electrical connection diagrams. Instructors or mentors are then called upon to verify the electrical connections, providing learners with immediate positive feedback or additional guidance as needed on a one-on-one basis. Lastly, because readers are required to perform key tasks repeatedly, the use of this lab manual enables them to progress through the most critical phase of the electrical wiring learning curve in a safe and controlled manner.
