1.0 out of 5 starsIt would not be fair to rate it 5-star!
21 January 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
This book is way too basic and not even cover enough simple NEC requirements. I don't think the person who gave a 4 or 5-star understand and compare this book with the same type of book from different authors. Try to compare it with books by "McPartland" or "Stallcup's" The title, book descriptions and some review comments on Amazon.com are bias and misleading. If you want to purchase it for a beginner or a class room, then it might be ok. Otherwise, it is not worth to pay that much of money for so little info.
5.0 out of 5 starsTo the point and plain to understand, great for me as a technical designer

To the point and plain to understand, great for me as a technical designer. A more detailed book would have confused me and I would have put it down. This book is complete and provided me the initial knowledge to start my new job as an electrical cad operator/designer position. 2017June14 HVB
5.0 out of 5 starsUnbeatable Guide to Design Your Own Electrical Plans of an Industrial Building

This book is packed with NEC reference for up to code standards. It comes with full 'E' size plan layouts of the floor plan, lighting plan with T-grid and one line diagram for power distribution. These plans are also available on a CD also included with the book. This book is designed and written for the purpose of a step by step walk through to designing the electrical outlets, lighting and machine equipment in this industrial/commercial building. Excellent source of information for electrical majors needing a project.
I'm a professional engineer but most of my experience is in the process control and automation industry. I had to perform an electrical and control systems design for a customer and this book helped me by providing logical steps to build a complete electrical design of a facility. It references NEC 2008, so along with it, you feel confident that your design will comply with NEC. It is simple, easy to follow. It covers all major areas of an electrical design and provides sample calculations, drawings, etc.
