Pocket Guide to the National Electrical Code 2002

Pocket Guide to the National Electrical Code 2002 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Pocket Guide to the National Electrical Code is intended for use as a convenient reference guide for architects, engineers, electrical designers, electrical contractors, electricians, manufacturers, inspectors, teachers, students, and all those who use the code in their work. The reader should have a basic knowledge of electricity and the National Electrical Code or be using this book together with other instructional material in the study of electricity, electrical design, and construction.

This book is not intended to replace the National Electrical Code but rather be used with it. It is intended to provide the user with a reference book of those topics in the NEC¨ that occur most frequently to the user in a form that can be carried at all times where it might prove inconvenient to carry a copy of the complete National Electrical Code.
