This book is a very good companion to the DC Fundamentals text book and acts as a quick reference book. It's short and to the point which comes in handy when learning the material. But twords the end of this most recent edition, certain NEC code referrals refer to the 1999 NEC code and not to the 2002 NEC Code. Although it's not a huge issue it's somthing that should be updated in the next edition.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
