Designed for the beginning electrician who wants to learn how to install a residential electrical system accurately and effectively, Residential Wiring invites readers to follow the wiring of a typical suburban house. Organized in a logical sequence, this book takes the reader step-by-step from installation of the temporary power and lighting service at the start of construction to final trim and checkout prior to occupancy. By examining the installation of the electrical system in the same order as actual construction, essential information is presented concisely and in a manner that is instantly relevant to new residential wiremen. Twenty-one fast-paced, yet highly informative chapters introduce professional techniques for cable routing, drilling, and layout to novices. In-depth information about popular wiring methods and techniques, as well as the materials used in residential construction today, is also included to propel readers to the knowledge and skills they need to become highly productive and competent apprentices. Precise learning goals at the start of each chapter, lists of prerequisite knowledge, chapter-end summaries, plus study questions make this book ideal for both electrical students and beginning apprentices seeking to fill gaps between formal study and on-the-job training.
