by Tom Henry
at the beginning preparing for the electrical exam properly with this
work‚book which con‚tains 8 chapters each with an exam, five final
exams to‚taling over 500 questions with 29 pages of answers in detailed
sketches by Tom Henry. This book is written in clear and simple
language on this very important subject electricity, of which is not
being prop‚erly taught today. I have massaged the chalk board and made
it understandable for the student.
Aristotle was asked how much better educated, trained men were to those
“As much,” he said, “as the living are to the dead.”
felt the need to write this book to share my experiences of 60 years in
the electrical industry and the changes I personally have witnessed
in the electrical exam passing rate. A student must start at the
beginning with the fundamental laws of electricity, there is no shortcut.
so many entering the trade haven't been required to realize, it's a
trade, it's listed as a profession, you are required to be
professional. Do you know why? Because you can kill yourself or someone
else working with electricity. It requires education and continuing
education throughout your career. Obtaining the license is
just a start in your journey through electrical education.
is no excuse today for not passing an exam and getting your license.
Good grief, back in the 1970's we didn't have access to all the books
and videos you have to prepare with as you do today. My gosh, look at
our future, with maybe 30 years of oil left and billions of years of
sun left, guess what, solar power and electric vehicles: These vehicles
require a place to plug them in, this is our future. Get involved now,
get started on the ground floor, start your future today. I'm excited
about the future of the electrical industry, but it will require
jumping through the hoops if you want to advance. I learned that much
in my journey, I wouldn't change it for anything. I'm a believer in
education and the skilled trades; being a craftsman.
I've found it's human nature for people
to believe that something is better
when it's difficult or complicated. With all our incredible technology,
we've developed a definite lack of respect in this country for simple. We think
the more complicated something is,the more valuable it is. Complicated
may work for machines, but not for people.
In starting my apprenticeship in 1956, I was taught by a man who was
going to make you get the best out of yourself. He believed people were
capable of accomplishing more than they felt they could. He
sold you on hard work, nothing that comes easy is worth a dime. That's
why this book is a workbook! It's called "jumping through the hoops." It's
continuing your education, continue to learn!
feel the fundamentals of electricity must be moulded into the student
in the beginning. So much is not being taught today. We must get the
big "E" education, back in "E"lectrician! It is evident that a greater
effort must be made to
educate installers of electricity to its proper use, The lack of
knowledge is dangerous. This is why the truly educated never graduate.
The major purpose of a license is to protect public health and safety
by preventing unqualified people from practicing a given profession or
occupation. The order in which the various topics are taken up is what
the author has found to be most teachable. The method of presentation
is designed to arouse and hold interest, and to furnish the easiest
approachto new or more difficult ideas. This book will explain
electrical circuits through research in all subjects discussed; in
short to reduce the every-day practice of a million skilled workers to
an unvarying science; science being defined as the "orderly arrangement
The true passion and purpose for my life began when I started teaching.
That passion is being able to make a difference in the lives of others.
My direction is, you've done a good job, now let's do better. You've
done it well, now let's excel! I never defuse enthusiasm, I use this
creative power to drive myself and my students to excellence.
Joe McPartland, my mentor, reminded me
that to a teacher what is worse than not knowing the answer
to a students question is never to have been asked the question. He
asked me, "What do you do when you don't know the answer to the
question? You tell the student I don't know the answer but I'll find it
for you. Then you purchase a book, write letters to higher ups, you
call me, you find the answer. And as a teacher you grow everytime you
are asked a question!" Now that's powerful!!
seems to me that today young people are not challenged or have not had
the opportunity to fully investigate what their individual talents may
be to actually guide them to become successful adults. I don't have all
the answers but I do know there would be more success stories if we, as
teachers and advisors can create a more individualized, motivational
atmosphere in which they can develop their God given talents.
The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his
work. The world takes off its hat to those who put more than 50% of
their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between
souls who devote 100%
When asked what I wanted my
legacy to be: Later in life when you knew better, you did better. I
wanted to stand for something. I wanted to be remembered that I left it
better than I found it. I
want the world to judge me on what I do right. Nobody can
motivate you but yourself!
of the Fundamental Laws of Electricity
A must book for an electrical instructor in a must needed area in
electrical education of the fundamental laws and how they are applied.
For the person taking a electrical license exam, this is the area other
than the Code book questions and calculations, on which you will be
questioned on. This workbook will prevent the weakness on this subject
which is lowering the passing percentage today.
