Cracking the Code: A Practical Guide to the 2023 NEC

Product Code/ISBN: 9781637767054
Cracking the Code is an approachable, effective text that teaches students the structure and organization of the National Electrical Code® (NEC), based on the 2023 NEC. Because the NEC is a constantly evolving standard and far too vast to memorize, author Rob Zachariason took a unique approach to develop a book that focuses on teaching students how to navigate the structure of the NEC, rather than replicating the information found in the Code. The book is divided into two parts: the first half focuses on teaching students where information is located and how to use the NEC, while the second half focuses on specific Code-related design and calculation applications. Pro Tips provide real-world examples of the chapter content and help to tie in other Code requirements. Examples show relevant, Code-based applications and calculations being solved with step-by-step explanations.
