NOTICE ABOUT NEC/UGLY'S VERSIONS:  Since reference #5 is based on the 2017 NEC, it makes more sense to buy an NEC version that matches quotations from the same NEC version.  We believe that the 2011 version of the NEC shown in the bulletin is in error and will probably get changed in the next updated bulletin.

Additional Recommended Books

The books listed below are NOT allowed at the exam location

1a.
Ferm’s Fast Finder Index, 2017, IAEI
Buy at Amazon
1b.
Tom Henry's Key Word Index, 2017, Tom Henry
Buy at Amazon

We 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.
