Brought back for the California journeyman's exam, this unique
book contains almost a
thousand multiple-choice questions -- exactly the type you'll
find on the exam -- cover every area of electrical
installation: electrical drawings, services and systems,
transformers, capacitors, distribution equipment, branch circuits,
feeders, calculations, measuring and testing, and more.
It gives you the correct answer, an explanation, and where to
find it in the 2002 NEC. Also tells how to apply for the
test, how best to study, and what to expect on examination day.
Includes a sample test just like you'll receive on the day of the
exam with the answers in the back of the book. See where you need to
study more, before you take the actual exam.
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'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 & Motor Controls
- Utilization of Equipment
- Electrical Services
- Electrical Calculations
- Special Occupancies
- Electrical Measuring & Testing
- Distribution Equipment
- Branch Circuits & Feeders
- Transformers & 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.
