Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The eBook copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


The sequence of topics and practical applications encompassed in this book will provide readers with a solid foundation in electron theory and movement, direct-current series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, voltage line drops, rotating machinery fundamentals, and more! The Eighth Edition has been updated to the 2008 National Electrical CodeŽ and features current industry terminology, contemporary photographs of commonly used electrical equipment, and updated circuit diagrams throughout. Sample problems and solutions in each unit help to solidify an understanding of electrical principles, making this an ideal choice for a first course in basic electricity, house wiring, or commercial installations.
