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.
NOTICE: The questions we have created for this exam do not include content from the first and second references under Additional Allowed Books. These books are not codes, but companion references to help candidates find subjects and answers in the NEC.
Questions are sourced from the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the 2017 version of Ugly‘s Electrical Reference.
The price of study materials varies and is based on the number of questions included in your files.
