As we all know electricity is very dangerous, so if wiring isn't something you are comfortable doing. It is very important to have it inspected prior to any testing.
It is very important to strip all wires cleanly without scoring the copper wire, stranned wire should be tightly twisted prior to connecting to other wires with wire nut.
A 6" length of wire is a fair amount for a service loop inside the box. Electricity flows like water through a hose any loose connections, tight bends or kinks in the wire can create hot spots, over time can become a problem.
Some receptacles are marked
"Hot" / Black Wire
"Common" / White Wire
