QUESTION:  “What is the difference between the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the NEC Handbook (both published by NFPA)?”.  The Handbook is the exact same content with additional inserted drawings and explainations of code applications.  In our opinion, the typical exam candidate does not need the additional information which is mainly designed for engineers and inspectors.

Additional Recommended Books

1.
Ferm's Fast Finder Index, 2014, IAEI
Buy at Amazon
2.
Tom Henry's Key Word Index, 2014, Tom Henry
Buy at Amazon

We highly recommend that you purchase one of the reference books above to study for your exam.  Each book is a comprehensive subject index to the NEC.  They provide an even faster way to look up answers in the code and are far more detailed than the index at the end of the code book.
