THE DEFINITIVE TRAINING GUIDE TO WIRING THE HOME FOR NETWORKED SERVICES

The proven training methods and procedures you need to plan, sell, bid on, install, and upgrade these popular automated systems.

Whole-home wiring, also known as structured wiring has rapidly become a must-have feature in new construction and is one of the most frequently cited reasons for remodeling. This industry explosion has created a lucrative opportunity for cable installers, electricians, IT managers, and telecom equipment manufacturers to expand into the residential arena.

Recognizing an informational need, McGraw-Hill and BICSI have joined forces to provide the most reliable residential network cabling manual available. Developed for BISCI’s internationally respected curriculum for the Registered Residential Installers, this resource provides all the information and step-by-step training advice needed to master residential network cabling and thoroughly covers:


* New installation
* Upgrades
* Integration for add-ons
* And much more

A cabling guide written by over 60 renowned technical experts, fully compliant with NEC, FCC, ANSI/TIA/EIA, CEBus, Firewire, and Bluetooth standards, Residential Network Cabling provides the depth and breadth of coverage you would expect from the combined expertise of McGraw-Hill and BICSI.

Format: Paperback
This book contains a wealth of valuable information, but it is not very accessible to a non-professional. It reads very much like a text book and might be a good resource if you really need to know the nuances of every type of cable needed in a Residential Structured Cabling System.
I purchased this book in hopes that it would have a little more Do-it-yourself information, but was disappointed. The largest problem in my opinion was the quality of the illustrations. There were plenty of line drawings, but they lacked detail and utility. It went into great detail on how to work with optical fiber but left it entirely to your imagination of how to work with Network, Television and Telephone cable.
The book is riddled with duplicated knowledge, (several sections are even repeated several times in the same chapter) and makes references to other publications that a home builder or electrician may have.
If you are looking for good resource on how to build your own home network/CATV/telephone structured cable system, look elsewhere. If you are familiar with the electrical or telecommunications fields and need a good reference it might suit your needs.

I attended the Pilot Training course of the same name taught by BICSI. The book very closely follows whatis in the course, and is required reading if you intend to take the BICSI exam. As technical books go, it is very easy to read. I would recomend this bookto anybody looing to get into the Residential Cabling Market.
