QUESTION:  “What is the difference between the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the NEC Handbook (both published by NFPA)?”.  The Handbook has the same content as the Code book with additional drawings and explainations inserted.

The Handbook was designed for engineers and inspectors and the typical exam candidate should not need to use it as a reference.
