If I may ask...how far along are you? Are you in the trade now? The reason I ask these questions is you comment on not being able to backfeed breakers is something you should already know if you are going to be taking a Journeyman's exam.

And another thing to add is he is the wrong place if he is in the business.
http://www.electriciantalk.com/ is where he should be if he is on the up and up.
At the professional forum he could be served much better.

Yes. But still the best forum on the internet.

And most important is to not get the real forum mixed up with the lesser forum.
