This list is a perfect companion to any electrical job in a home. I particularly like the NEC code cites which enabled me to review the actual source document. This is very important in my opinion since many of these types of guides give their interpretation of what the code says, not what it says verbatim. I found everything in this check list to be 100% accurate after reading the actual NEC.
The checklists are organized by topic very easy to follow. I highly recommend this as well as the companion Plumbing, HVAC, and Building checklists

Information is well laid out, follows the code book sections. Illustrations help in understanding the code. Easy for non-electricians to understand.

I have read the 2008 NEC, but that is just too much to remember. Much easier to use this to jog the memory. Can always go back to the NEC when things are not clear.

I bought all of the code check books in the hopes of saving time for references but have been disappointed. All of these assume you have a full copy of the IBC and don't provide enough information to be of use without the IBC. This is the most complete of the series and includes at least some of the tables required by its references. It's useful but not without the NEC and IBC for reference.

This book was recommended to me by a city inspector who claimed that everything I'd need to know to pass inspection would be in it. He was right. It is a neat little book with plastic covered pages that seems impervious to the usual work site dust and splatter. It has a decent glossary and a healthy list of the acronyms you are likely to hear bantered around when you go shopping. There is minimal text but lots of lists and diagrams. The best thing about it is that every bit of instruction and explanation makes reference to the Code. This is really what distinguishes it from Stanley Complete Electrical, which is also a good book to have.

I expected a better review of the CODE for someone at a DIY-level to understand. This wasn't that. The data is thorough, but wasn't presented in a user-friendly manner. If you know the CODE and want a quick reference or simple way to review updates to CODE, this would probably suit you just fine. If you are a DIY person wanting to make your electrical changes to CODE, this probably wont spell things out as well as you'd like. The illustrations a few and not well documented.
