Default Any good Electrician's Magazine?

I'm going to school to become an electrician and I need a good Electrician Magazine to read about the trade and any news, equipment, tools, or new trends in the industry. Can anybody tell me the name of a good electrician magazine to order or to subscribe? Thanks in advance for the advice!!

I like EC&M (Electrical Construction & Maintenance mag).

http://ecmweb.com/ Read online. Search archives, read articles for hours!

I believe I have just recently subscribed to the Electrical contractor mag.

If you are into controls and industrial plant work I like Control Engineering and Plant Engineering. Both have free subscriptions available.
