Books Allowed in the Exam

1.
National Electrical Code (NFPA-70) [or] National Electrical Code Handbook, 2005, NFPA
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 NEC book with additional drawings and explainations inserted.

The Handbook was designed for engineers and inspectors.  The typical exam candidate should not use it as a prefered reference unless they are using it for inspection jobs in their day-to-day work.

Books NOT Allowed in the Exam

1.
Telecommunications Wiring, 3rd Edition, Clyde N. Herrick

Additional Recommended Books

1.
Ferm's Fast Finder Index, 2014, IAEI
Buy at Amazon
2.
Tom Henry‘s Key Word Index, 2014, 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.

3.
Ugly‘s Electrical References, 2017, George Hart (also obtained at most Lowes 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" or "General Knowledge and Calculations" listed in your exam bulletin is sometime not listed in subjects and just assumed.

We are showing the currently available version because Amazon prices list as less expensive.  A newer version will not effect your ability to use for your exam.
