Straight talk on the rules. Electrical Code Simplified books were written by an electrical inspector.

Reliability - Electrical Code Simplified Books have been used for more than twenty years by more than a million installers.

Enjoyable - Installing electrical wiring should be easy, it should be fun, and it should be a money saving experience.

Simplified Instructions - With the detailed instructions and illustrations given in this book anyone handy with tools can undertake to install part, or all the wiring, in his or her own house. Every step is clearly illustrated.

Proven Instructions -With this book you will follow time proven instructions developed over many years by many electrical contractors. You will produce a professional installation that you will be proud of.

Clarity - these books speak clearly to the point. The legalese used in the Code is replaced with easily understandable explanations.

Safety - The Electrical Code is the minimum standard permitted for any electrical wiring installation. This Code has been developed over many years by countless professional electricians who were concerned to make house wiring safe.

Code rules - Instruction books which do not reference the appropriate Code standards can be misleading and dangerous. Such instructions cannot be easily verified to insure they are in fact safe. Electrical Code Simplified books do provide such Code rule references. Every step is shown to be carefully planned and illustrated to insure your installation will be installed correctly.

Coverage - This book begins with service size. This is critical in wiring a new house, and, whenever any new load is being added to an existing service. The book shows how to determine the size of service you will require for the total load. From there it deals with each step as you install the new wiring. Code rules are given so that every detail can be supported by the official safety rules. A very important feature in this book is the large number of illustrations used to clarify detail.

Who needs this book - Anyone installing electrical wiring in a residence is required to know the electrical Code rules to insure a safe installation. If the installation will be inspected, (technically, all installations of any size are required to be inspected) it must pass, or the installer may be asked to pay a penalty. Often the penalty is at least three times the cost of this book. If it will not be inspected then it is critical the installer has a copy of this book. Safety, in any electrical installation, is the first point of concern. Electrical Code Simplified is the only book that can meet this tough standard. It is a fully proven product.

For the Student - A typical exam, complete with answers, is located at the end of the book. The student will find this an invaluable tool to determine where more training is needed.

Find the answers - The index makes it easy to find the answers to technical questions usually encountered in residential installations.
