Books Allowed in the Exam

1.
National Electrical Code (NFPA-70), [or] National Electrical Code Handbook, 2017, NFPA
Buy at Amazon
2.
Ugly‘s Electrical References, (Any Edition) George Hart
Buy at Amazon

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.

Additional Allowed Books

1.
Ferm's Fast Finder Index, 2017, IAEI
Buy at Amazon
2.
Tom Henry's Key Word Index, 2017, 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.
