QUESTION: "What is the difference between the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the Handbook version?". As far as the actual NEC code quoted in the text... it's the same.
The NEC Handbook has additional diagrams, graphics and explainations inserted into the text (adding more pages and raising the price). It was designed for engineers and inspectors. The typical exam candidate should not use it as a prefered reference.
The study materials we are offering for this exam will exclude questions from reference #3 book which is not used by any other jurisdiction and is an out-of-date version.
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.
Sample questions are based on the two (2) references listed in the “Allowed” list (excluding #3).
The approximate number of sample questions in this package is 1,890.
