All in all the book is worth the money and the time that is takes to read it. It is easy to follow as I told the class that even a cave man can do it. I will purchase it or the next edition again.
Using this book as a reference, I've found and fixed a lot of the electrical problems the previous owners left behind, and I installed and wired AC-powered smoke detectors. There are more tasks to do, and I'll be going back to the book as needed.
The nice thing about electricity is it follows physical laws. Electrical requirements and wiring methods were developed in accordance with those laws. Once you understand *how* electricity works, you'll grasp *why* wiring is done the way it is. This book will teach you these basic principles, and it won't be too long before it all makes sense.
Some things to keep in mind: every city, county, and state has its own electrical code. This book obviously does not contain your local electrical requirements in it. Be sure to find out what the local laws are, and get a permit for your work if required. That way your work will be inspected, and you'll know you did it correctly. You'll sleep a lot easier, I assure you.
Finally, let me state the most important thing: while this book gives (in my opinion) a lot of great instruction on wiring and electrical things, it won't (and can't) have everything in it.Read more ›
