Designed to highlight the principles and practices used in the installation of a residential electrical wiring system, as well as how to effectively put them into practice, this book provides a valuable resource for learning the basic skills required of an entry-level electrician. Beginning with the preparation and planning tasks and moving forward to cover service entrances and equipment, rough-in and trim-out, and concluding with a section on maintenance and troubleshooting, the topics progress logically to provide readers with a strong sense of the tasks involved in a residential wiring project, from start to finish.
