Books Allowed in the Exam

National Electrical Code (NFPA-70), 2017, NFPA

Additional Recommended Books

Ferm‘s Fast Finder Index, 2017, IAEI
Buy at Amazon
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.

Ugly‘s Electrical References, 2017, George Hart (also obtained at most Lowe‘s Home Centers)
Buy at Amazon

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.  The basic knowledge covered in the exam is assumed and not usually listed as subjects covered.
