For experts, the National Electrical Code is the absolute standard for electrical and wiring regulations. For other than experts in the field, the Handbook is a better investment because of the examples, illustrations, and diagrams of different regulations. The index of the National Electrical Code is also incomplete and difficult to use for non experts. Terms, items and topics that are definitely in the Code are not listed in the index. The most complete investment is the Handbook and the CD.

Anyone who does purchase the paperback, standard version should also purchase the tabs.

Format: Paperback
This book is the quintessential book for all electricians who work actively in the field. It is almost necessary for all electricians looking to take their journeyman or master electricians test. A new NEC book is released every 3 years making it one of the tools an electrician must buy to keep up on the code changes. It's too bad it's so expensive. If you are considering becoming a licensed electrician you can look forward to shelling out at least $100.00 every three years to renew your license, and about $40.00 every year for licensing fees. But you can make a very good living being an electrician, so don't let the costs scare you away form this great trade.

The picture of the book I ordered looks exactly like the one that I received. Amazing! It actually has the NEC codes on the inside of the book which is exactly the reason I bought it. It is a really pretty book with lots of information.

Not much to say other than bring a highliter when you start reviewing the book. The FEC can get a little confusing, but that is what you can expect from any regulating body or entity.

The softcover is nice, but I can see where a smaller version of the FEC would come in handy. Plus, if you are working in the field with the FEC, a hardbook or looseleaf may suit you better in that you can carry just the sheets you need to the job site. All in All I am happy with AMAZON's price. Best I found for the book/guide. Overstock was more and so was half.com.

This book was in new condition just like it was described. New it goes for $40 easily and I got it for $3 with shipping. Love Amazon and all the companies it does business with. Very reputable. Now I just have to study for my D.C. test, this code book wont look new much longer. I also told about 15 people in my class and they were all ordering this 05 version from Amazon as well.

A necessary requirement for most hands on electricians, it really helped me get a good understanding of the world of electronics and all the code requirements required and why they're in place.
