ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE 5E provides readers with a unique approach to mastering the Code, using highly-detailed, technically-accurate illustrations and visuals to break down and simplify the expanding volume and complexity of the 2011 National Electrical Code. By translating the sometimes vague, complicated wording of the Code into straightforward illustrations and clear explanations, this book provides a resource that will facilitate comprehension and application of Code requirements for beginning and master electricians alike. Material is organized logically, covering fundamental provisions first, then grouping code requirements by the type of occupancy, beginning with one-family dwellings and progressing on to multi-family housing, commercial locations, and special occupancies. This organization also reflects how information is needed when working in the electrical industry, better preparing readers for the real world. The fifth edition of ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE discusses the new Code changes and shows some of these Code changes through new illustrations while incorporating other Code changes into existing illustrations. Its comprehensive coverage, innovative learning approach, and industry-based organization make this an indispensable supplement to the NEC whether readers need information on a specific area or need to learn the complete Code.
