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.
NOTE: We do not recommend buying older (out-of-print) editions of Ugly's References as suggested in the exam bulletin which tend to be more expensive and harder to find.
The books listed below are NOT allowed at the exam location
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.
This package contains approx. 1,545 sample questions from the NEC and Ugly's Reference.
Also includes bonus sample calculations for Ohm's Law and Series/Parallel combination circuits.
Features fully bookmarked and indexed PDF files for questions and answers to help you return to the code section you were studying between sessions.
