Chris,
I have an old book that can't be beat, but, naturally, it is out of print. It was written by Gebert/Edwards. Ken Gebert passed away some time ago.

Edwards has a new book out that MAY be every bit as good and can be had here:
http://www.go2atp.com/stores/1/product1.cfm?Product_ID=125

ATP (American Technical Publishers) has a few books that look promising, just type in "transformers" in the search engine block.

For just basic knowledge, the "American Electricians Handbook" is also pretty danged hard to beat.

What I really need is a book to study to prep me for the GA exam this Nov
I seem to have trouble with the transformers and multiple motor calculations.

I am partial to this one, which has much more than just transformers and motors. http://www.mikeholt.com/productitem.php?id=215&year=2005&from=All&type=Book

I went to the Tom Henry Seminars Before taking both my Journeymans and Masters Tests. And I have alot of the books by Tom Henry, I cant stress how much easier the test was after taking that Class. The books they make have actual code Questions in them, But the instructor in the class taught you how to get around in the code book which is KEY to taking the test. AND it usually helps to have someone else to study with, that way you can pick one night of the week to study and you shouldnt get sidetracked. And Dont forget Not all of the answers can be found in the code book. http://www.code-electrical.com/

Well guys I decided to take the restricted test this time.The 2 times before I got a 66
(70 to pass)
this time I got a 86
The restricted allows me to wire 200amps or less ,single family dwellings.
In 2006 I will attempt the unrestricted exam again (unless we can get any changes to the classifications)
Merry Christmas everyone!
Chris Simms
