Preface

Electric Wiring: Domestic has for many years been acknowledged
as the standard guide to the practical aspects of domestic electric
wiring. The twelfth edition has been thoroughly rewritten and updated
and seeks to address the areas of most concern to the qualified
electrician, especially design and testing. It will also be a useful
addition to the resources available for students working towards
NVQs or City & Guilds qualifications.
This book is also a vital reference source for many other professionals
whose work demands a knowledge of electrical installations,
including electrical engineers, heating engineers, architects
and maintenance staff. It is not intended as a DIY manual, although
some non-qualified persons may find certain topics useful before
calling in qualified operatives.
The contents cover current professional best practice and are
fully in line with the 16th edition of the Regulations for Electrical
Installations issued by the Institution of Electrical Engineers.
