French Electrics - Learning Resources
Everyone planning to work on the electrics in their French home, should understand clearly what it is they are doing, how it should be done and what they can and can't do before they embark on the job. This is common sense, but often overlooked.
Part of this will be to read up as much about the subject as you can. There are various books on this subject (including one in English). I recommend that you buy at least one of these, preferably L'installation électrique, because it is, in my opinion, the best.
Pont Noir has a fair number of books reviews on French Electrics which can be found in the forum.
