4Good reference for relatively simple electrical jobs
By John G.
Good basic reference if you are interested in staring an electrical business. The book provides fundamental steps and clear guidance to walk you through the process of writing an estimate. It also provides estimates for typical residential and small business electrical projects. It is limited in its ability to give the level of detail needed to prepare an estimate for larger projects. If you want to know how long it will take to run wire around the perimeter of a garage, and install an outlet every ten feet, you will find this book to be a good reference. If you want to estimate the costs of running three "00" conductors in a manufacturing facility that has a 20' ceiling, and up to a roof-top cooling unit, following the NEC, you will be disappointed.

By Jerronious of Lake City, FL
To the electrical savvy person this would be a helpful book. However, once the basic of
estimating are learned then the book would set on a shelf collecting dust. Over priced but
still cheaper than purchasing software to do computerized estimating.

3A good starter for learning.
By R. Yates
The title "reference" is correct. A good source of tables and forms and "how to organize" an estimate. A good number of labor units but very little pricing info, and what's listed is probably not current.
