I think that the book is very appropriate for my students. It's concise and easy to understand.
This is written in a fashion that will appeal to not only the hands-on type of student, but the academic student as well.
This text has always been current with the Electrical Industry, and I am glad to see the author is keeping up to industry standards and with NEC changes.
