    First off, what does "learning design" have to do with the NEC?

    As far as DVD vs textbooks, that's a choice that's up to you. I will say a "visual" is sometimes easier to understand than just reading it.

    When you design a residential or a commercial space you have to meet NEC standards like spacing between receptacles and receptacle heights and other stuff like that...Thats what i was referring to..

    Mike's DVD are excellent and as Bill stated sometime a visual lesson is easier to retain than something from a book. You can look on YouTube and see samples of Mike's videos.

    It is worth every penny.

    Depending on your field & trade experience and your education level in the electrical trade, the master package may not apply to you.

    You can always call their office and they can guide you towards a product most suited to your needs.

    Thought it's appropriate to ask in this thread. Anyone know of discount code for Mike Holt products, I just missed one by three days.

    Call the 800 number. It's a friendly place over there.
