You'll learn how to lay out an electrical project, what to look out for in dealing with construction specifications and drawings especially in terms of today's technology, how to use an engineer's scale for developing and reading site plans, and how to make up and use panelboard, connected-load, and other schedules.

Reading a blueprint is like reading a road map. It tells you exactly what you're required to build. Read it wrong and you'll build it wrong - and that can be expensive. This book will teach you how to get the information you need from the most complex electrical blueprints. Once you understand how to follow the pathways and interpret the scale and symbols, you can install the correct system the way the designer intended. Keep this book as a handy reference. Once you've learned the techniques it explains, you'll no longer face the bewilderment and frustration of having to build from electrical blueprints you can't read.
