Completely updated to include changes to the 2005 National Electrical Code, this newly revised edition examines dwelling unit electrical power and lighting wiring for electrical students and beginning apprentices. Coverage takes readers through the construction of a typical suburban house, from the installation of temporary construction power to the final trim and checkout of the lighting fixtures, switches, receptacles, and appliances. Construction of the dwelling is followed chronologically in a true-to-life fashion that presents a realistic environment for readers. Expansive coverage examines such topics as GFCI and AFCI protection, overcurrent, box file requirements, conductor ampacity, drilling limitations, conductor routing and installation, required circuits, box make-up, feeder and service loads, service, grounding, and much more.

Harry W. Sorge is a licensed Master Electrician, a former contractor, foreman, journeyman, wireman, and apprentice. He became an apprentice electrician in 1977 after several corporate jobs because, as he said in the job interview, ¿I am 30 years old and I don¿t know how to do anything.¿ Following completion of an apprenticeship-training program, he began teaching electrical classes at night for the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Independent Electrical Contractors Association (IEC) while working in the field full time. Over the next fourteen years he alternately taught first year, second year, and forth year apprenticeship classes and various types of classes for licensing exam preparation, NEC changes, motor controls, services, grounding, and many other subjects. In 1996, he was asked to take over the functional operation of the apprenticeship-training program for the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the IEC. He is a member of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors and the National Fire Protection Association. He has served on the national committee of the IEC for first year curriculum.Review:
