This exam may also include questions on the following subjects:
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.
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. 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.
Sample questions are based on the NEC, Telecommunications Wiring and the currently available Ugly‘s Electrical Reference.
This package contains 1,124 sample questions.
