NOTICE:  We believe that the two fire alarm books (#2 and 4) listed in the bulletin for this exam are in error.  Neither the exam content or scope of work (republished above) include any fire or burglar alarm content, these two books don't belong.  We advise that you contact ProV before buying these books to verify that they are actually required.

NOTE:  The ProV exam bulletin may not have not been updated to show that the 16th Edition of reference #1 is out-of-print and replaced by the 17th edition.

Additional Recommended Books

The books listed below are NOT allowed at the exam location

Ferm's Fast Finder Index, 2011, IAEI

Tom Henry's Key Word Index, 2011, Tom Henry
Buy at Amazon

We recommend that you purchase one of the two NEC index 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 subjects covered in the exam and are far more detailed than the index at the end of the code book.
