NOTE:  About references 2 through 5...  our sample questions will not include content from these legal codes.  We found that trying to extract the text of these codes from the various Utah government (poorly designed) web sites to be near impossible.  It is not clear in the ProV bulletin whether or not these codes are provided during the exam.  If you need help making a PDF version of these code sections, use our contact page and refer to the item number on this page and the exam title.  We will make a PDF for you and send to your email.

Additional Recommended Books

The books listed below are NOT allowed at the exam location

Ferm's Fast Finder Index, 2020, IAEI
Buy at Amazon
Tom Henry's Key Word Index, 2020, Tom Henry
Buy at Amazon

We 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.

Ugly's Electrical References, 2020, George Hart
Buy at Amazon
Practical Calculations for Electricians, 2020, Ray Holder
Buy at Amazon

Reference #2 above contains practical applications of the NEC such as Ohm‘s Law, series/parallel circuits, voltage drop, load calculations, motor phases, impedance, inductance and math formulas you are expected to know.  “Basic Knowledge” is covered in the exam but detailed subjects are assumed and not specifically called out in the bulletin.

A good “calculations” book where you can drill yourself repeatedly is always a good way to remember the most basic math procedures.  Generally, you won't have time during an exam to search for these procedures in a book.
