This is an extremely good reference book. It's small enough to carry and full of those little items that we need to refresh on regularly. I'm an electrical maintenance supervisor for an international company and everyone in my department has one. I also get them for our engineering staff.

Have been an apprentice electrician and worked in the field. When in a classroom, this book is great for refreshing your memory on a formula or to get the right formula for making the correct bend in a piece of conduit. No matter how experienced one is, it is always nice to have a small reference item such as this book. I know several Master Electricians that swear by this book.

We have designed and contracted electrical work in residential, commercial, and industrial applications for years, and this handy reference was absolutely indispensible - physically tough, authoritatively reliable, and a quick cut to the facts we needed to know or verify. It covered many crucial subjects in our day-to-day applications, notably among them for us - ampacity, different aspects of fill, full-load currents, etc. Even now, in our full-time house design work, UGLY'S is still a frequently used reference in our library.

My husband had me purhase this for him for work. He is an Electrial Maintance Mechanic. He says this is a quick way to figure out problems at work. A must have.

For the price, this little "mini-reference" is jam-packed with information. It has great diagrams of transformer wiring (Wye, Delta, etc.), and NEMA connector pinouts. There are useful tables for conductors, ampacities, correction factors, unit conversions, and many more. It has sample calculations like "load calculation." It includes some formulas and equations that an electrical industry worker may never need, but it's nice to have it all in a handy, portable place that's much sturdier than your iPad. It has a durable cover and comes in a handy, small size you can even put in a pocket. De rigeur for working journeymen or apprentice electricians and students.

To much information to even start. It has many, many tables, charts, examples, general information, math, trigonometry, NEC exception references and of course stuff like derating factors, conduit fill, device fill, electrode conductor size ohms law, Henry's law, Kirchoff's law on and on and on.

Let's put it this way, it takes up less space than the NEC and has almost the same amount of info that is not normally used (conduit fill and conductor properties for example).

I have been an electricain for 25+ years and I keep this book handy mostly for the occasional times I run accross something I have not done in a while like multi shot bends on conduit or transformer sizing. It has much more to offer than that though and is good for experts and novices alike.

All those electrical formulas that you were taught in electrical school but can't quite remember when you need them, plus some you probably never seen before. Gives answers that you think you don't have enough information to obtain. Cheap enlightenment for your pocket.
