NOTE:  Regarding the versions of Ugly's Reference shown in the PSI bulletin: you should always choose a version that agrees with the NEC that you are using (as shown above).

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 explanations 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 preferred reference.
