Some answers give only a yes or no answer when an explanation is needed.

Then looking in Motors XIV "Tables" there are 7 tables and none of them are "430.150"!!!

To be compleatly fair I am currently half way through the book so my review is only based on my experience with the book so far. At this perticular molment in time I am compleatly feed up with this book. I have come across a number of typos including references to articles in the code book that don't seem to exist: example (in chapter 6 range table 220.19 should be 220.55). Explinations to answers seem to contridict the actual answer: Example (chapter 7 page 103, Answer is no but the explination goes on to say why the answer is yes!!!) WTF!

The examples in this book are at times too complex in the "introductory" of the chapters, such as the examples in chapter 8 "overcurrent protection" which introduces the chapter and begins to go more into depth on the subject matter. Example: (And this is the shorter much simpler one): What is the maximum size time-delay fuse permitted to protect a 1-hoursepower 3-phase, 230-volt squirrel cage motor with a name plate of 3.3 amperes?) Then the explination to the correct answer goes on through 5 steps on how to come to the final conclution. Its too complex and doesn't explain enough as to how a person would know to refer to the given articles mentioned (unless you memorize every section in the NEC!). Also it mentions Table 430.150 but when you look in the book to try and follow Mr Loyd you find Article 430.128 and then the very next Article is 430.221!!! Then looking in Motors XIV "Tables" there are 7 tables and none of them are "430.150"!!! WTF, is this a joke! This is why I say Mr. Loyd needs teaching lessons, simply because you don't take someone who is trying to learn how to ride a bicycle and put them on a motorcycle! And tell them to rotate thier wrist if they want to slow down!

I bought this book for a review in order to take my Journeyman's exam. I am right now halfway through the book and have to write a review because I am disappointed with what the book is offering. I have found it helpful... but i also found numerous errors when referencing codes, poor explanations to questions, unclear questions, and other general inconsistencies throughout the book.

-Some answers reference codes that no longer exist or are the wrong code.
-Some answers give only a yes or no answer when an explanation is needed.
-Questions reference diagrams, but they don't state that in the question. Or questions are simply missing information.

This book is alright, I plan on selling it when i'm done with it.

I used both of Mr. Loyd's books for the Journeyman Exams and Master Electrician Exams. Although there were typos, and the material wasn't exactly "polished," (and frankly a bit mundane) working through the material helped me to pass both exams on the first attempt, without any previous formal code training. If you grasp the material in these books you will pass the exam. The material he presented was a "bulls-eye." He helps write the exams so he knows the material you need to know. I teach in the local I.E.C. Apprenticeship school now and I am using it to prepare my 4th year students to take the Journeyman Exam.

I made 80% on the Journeyman test. This book was a great help. If you use this book you should be able to pass.
