Very good Technical Reference 18 May 2010
By Michael G. Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Electricity for the Entertainment Electrician & Technician is a very good Technical reference book. It has a lot of very detailed technical information for the seasoned Entertainment Electrician and Technician yet put into terms easy to understand by the novice or aspiring technicians. I read it in a couple of days and enjoyed it. I recommend this book to anyone who aspires to become an ETCP certified Electrician/Technician.

As the label says. 7 July 2010
By Jonathan Pav - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very well written. I think every user of electricity and specifically technical personnel of all skill levels in the entertainment industry will find real value in the information and detail presented in this text.

Covers basic theory relied upon day to day with interesting anecdotes and relevant background history that places current standards and practices used around the world in context.

Explains more complicated power theories - how electricity behaves in the real world; how to stay safe and how to produce highly accurate calculations.

Enables critical analysis; to work with limitations and benefits of various power distribution, dimmer systems and power supplies.

Test questions at the end of each section help to consolidate and revise each topic.

This book is an excellent teaching book and VERY easy to follow. Mr. Cadena does a great job of tackling very difficult concepts and breaking down to easy to understand/learn/apply knowledge. I highly recommend this read if you are looking to understand electricity in the entertainment profession.

Must Have Knowledge for Stagehands 6 July 2010
By James R Segura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I originally picked this up while searching out study guides in preparation for the ETCP CEE Exam for members of my Local.

A shockingly high percent of people in my field have little to no knowledge of what electricity actually is and how it powers their equipment. This is by far the friendliest and easiest to understand guide to electrical theory and safe practices for members of the entertainment industry I have come across.
