Completely up to date with the 2014 edition of the National Electrical Code, RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION ACADEMY: HOUSE WIRING, 4e delivers the latest and best practices in residential electrical wiring. This vividly illustrated, full-color text is based on the HBI National Skill Standards that cover the skill sets necessary to achieve a first job in construction or as an electrician. The text provides thorough coverage of "green" topics, sustainable building practices, alternative energy systems, and much more. "From Experience" sections address common residential wiring practices and scenarios, while "Caution" boxes emphasize the ongoing importance of safety. In addition to a hands-on student workbook/lab manual, the text also points the reader to an all-new 3D immersive simulation performance 'game' to help learners prepare for real-world practice.
