From the Back Cover:
If you're getting ready to take the electrician's exam and drowning in pages of tables, rules and exceptions, here's the book you need.
You'll find almost a thousand multiple choice questions to study, each based on actual questions from the tests administered over the last few years in states and countries across the U.S. The questions are written just as they are on the exams, except the answers and an explanation are provided below each question. You can test your knowledge by covering up the answers as you go through the book.
Each chapter begins with a basic explanation of the topic, followed by dozens of questions on that particular area of work. There are diagrams to aid you in understanding the subject, and direct references to the National Electrical Code sections or tables that apply to the questions.
Chapters cover practically all the subjects likely to be tested in the exam, including:
- Electrical Systems
- Electric Motors and Motor Controls
- Utilization of Equipment
- Electrical Services
- Electrical Calculations
- Special Occupancies
- Electrical Measuring and Testing
- Distribution Equipment
- Branch Circuits and Feeders
- Transformers and Capacitors
At the end of the book is a practice exam just like the one you'll be taking on exam day. The answers are given on a separate page. Once you can answer all the questions in the chapters, test your knowledge using the practice exam. If you find you're weak in one area go back and study that chapter again. By the time you take the real exam, you'll be prepared. Not only will you have a thorough knowledge of the type of questions you'll be asked, but you'll have had the experience of taking and passing the exam in the comfort of your own home.
Every topic is covered clearly and thoroughly. When you can answer all the questions in this exam book, taking the actual test on exam day should be a breeze.
