likely you've heard the expression, " A picture is worth a thousand
words." I've always maintained a smile means the same in any language.
A picture is like a poem without words. In my writing books I take text
and massage it and put it into a picture where possible.
have written 5 volumes "The Pictorial Workbook of the Code" which
covers the first five chapters of the code in pictures. The first five
chapters, I have always referred to as "the meat of the code."

guides for the apprentices, electricians, inspectors, technical schools
and even for the electrical engineer that had zero hours of code study
at the University.

a tremendous amount of work that must be done in electrical training.
The one area I feel we are lacking in is "learning" the Code. You can't
just read the Code book, it must be taught to you.
electricians must be better than they have ever been. With the
tremendous growth in technology, new products, new wiring methods, etc.
The industry has moved forward while many of us have stood still. Many
electrical jobs are in jeopardy because individuals have stood still.

The Electrician's Workbook.
started my electrical apprenticeship in 1956. Back in those days you
were studying to become a skilled craftsman in a trade. Back then you
were taught to "train your brain before you test it." Now after 60
years in the electrical industry I'm not sure what is being taught and
tested. I'm not sure how many "electricians" are out there. Many are
referred today as "electrical workers" or "installers." It is my personal opinion that
this book contains the
type of exam
questions a person should be asked to determine if they have the
cognitive knowledge to install an electrical circuit properly. This is
an excellent book for an apprentice or training class as it
contains exams with answers in which to grade the student.
Electrician Workbook. The workbook for the electrical
person working in the electrical industry. This book contains over 1000
closed book questions, 43 closed book electrical exams with answers,
questions on reading a multimeter, reading a megohmmeter, ground
detectors, troubleshooting control circuits, safety and tool questions,
three-phase transformers, etc. 316 pages.
I wrote this book to introduce troubleshooting so the electrician can
keep the lights on and the machinery running. I have found in my
travels and teaching, from the questions being asked to me, that there
is a definite need for a book on troubleshooting electrical circuits.
The Electricians Reference Book.
Now you will have a reference book to put in your pocket that will
