Really need Power Point to follow along and to refer to later, especially with so many article numbers
By (Contractor / Trades, Professional Organization) on Jan, 13, 2019
Really need Power Point to follow along and to refer to later, especially with so many article numbers.Changes made by NEC are much more interesting than the whys and hows.
I would grade course much better if there was a printed power Point to go with the video
By (Contractor / Trades, Professional Organization) on Dec, 30, 2018
I would grade course much better if there was a printed power Point to go with the video. To me the object of study and testing is to learn and maintain the knowledge which is done much more effectively with documentation accompanying the course that is specific to the course rather than having to go through the code book as the course is specific only to to changes in the Code.
