NOTICE: The version for reference #6 is incorrect in the exam bulletin. The publisher, IEEE, does not list a "2020" version.
NOTICE: If your PSI exam bulletin shows the 16th Edition (out-of-print version) of the American Electricians' Handbook, it has not been updated to show the current the 17th edition.
The book titles listed below are NOT allowed at the exam location
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.
The book above contains practical applications of the NEC such as Ohm‘s Law, series/parallel circuits, voltage drop, load calculations, motor phases, impediance, inductance and math formulas you are expected to know. “Basic Knowledge” and “Electrical Calculations” are subjects covered in the exam and are assumed (most likely not listed as a subject for electrical and mechanical exams of all types).
Sample questions are based on the PSI publication titled “29 CFR PART 1926 Selections, as of June 2013” (highlighted in green above).
This file contains approx. 800 sample questions.
REMINDER: PSI uses this book for many exams they offer. Not all sections of this code will apply to your exam.
We also include a table showing the relationship between our questions and OSHA code sections. Corrections to the original PSI publication are noted.
