American Electricians‘ Handbook, 16th Edition, Terrell Croft, Wilford Summers
Buy at Amazon

NOTE:  The PSI bulletin is in error.  You should be using a 2017 version of Ugly‘s (not a 2008) and a 16th Edition of the American Electricians‘ Handbook (not a 2002).  This recommendation is based on requirements for other states using the same NEC version.

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 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.
