I wanted as much information as possible to help with a complete rewire but thought I'd start with a book that gave me the basic information in an easy to read book. This book gave me both!! Clear diagrams, photographs and explanations is helping me through a complete rewire of the whole house including additional external circuits for my workshop. Everything i need to know before calling out the Electricity board to test and connect me up.

Perfect for DIY geeks.
I managed to rewire a complete house using this book as a guide. The only problem is some small changes have been made to the regulations (like using red sleeving for all lighting connections, not just red insulating tape) and it's not too clear on sizes required for earthing. However, my install was approved by an electrician with little hassle.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to understand. It gave me the confidence to carry out some of my own wiring projects ie house to garage power connection, shaver socket in the bathroom and additional lighting.
The book is very well illustated and has a wealth of useful tips. Above all the book is upto date.

This is a very well writen book, for those wishing to re-wire, add to exsisting or just understand home electical circuits.
It covers, in easy to understand terms, the whole gambit of elecrical instillations.
I'm sure those interested in or about to under go electrical work, will find this book invaluable.

I found the Which book of wiring and lighting to be very informative, with easy to follow pictures and diagrams:
It was well laid out and dispelled any fears about a subject that is actually easier to get to grips with than most imagine, just remember to turn the power off at the mains!

Very informative, good detailed descriptions and photographs for anybody wishing to 'dabble' in domestic DIY mains wiring. Alterations to any circuits 'should' be carried out in-line with the current IEE wiring regulations. If in doubt, and to be on the safe side, consult a qualified electrician before commencing any electrical work.

This is an excellent book for a keen (but novice) DIYer. The book contains step-by-step written instruction, with some wiring diagrams and clear, helpful pictures of electrical installations to ensure you are doing things the right way. Each job is broken down and explained in full, from extra sockets, shaver powerpoints in bathrooms, electric shower installs to a complete home rewire. My only (slight) criticism would be that the book needs an update, it doesn't contain the lastest legislation which came into effect in January 2005. Overall though, it's worthy of the 5 stars - and has encouraged me to purchase other Which? titles for other projects.

This book is fine for the diyer who wants to improve his/her electrical system. good explanation and clear diagrams. the only bad thing about the book is the lack of a basic introduction to testing. No mention of the industry standard "megger" test. Ok for the smaller project but for things like rewires call a qualified sparky.

I was unable to find an up-to-date version of this. Although written in the nineties and not complying with the latest regs, this is still one of the best guides to DIY wiring in the home being packed with practical advice and examples. You just need to interpret it in the light of the latest regs. If an updated version did become available then I would buy it and award it five stars.

I purchased this book for advice about rewiring my house. With the help of the easy to follow instructions I managed to do the work myself and got a qualified electrician to check it over when I finished. He said I'd done a very good job and signed it off for me. Couldn't have done without the book.
